Fright

Reena Saxena

It is a frightful time to be a man. I see my near and dear ones struggle to find their moorings in the changed scenario. They are good human beings. They have never done anything to hurt a woman. Yet, they feel inadequate to build an equation with the New Woman emerging.

Some of them seek solace in laying the blame on select personalities – “They are not goddesses either. Why did they not withdraw from the scene at the right time?” A few others seem to look askance at every gesture  – “Is it okay with you, or do you find it offensive? You never told us so.”

Despite being a fierce feminist, my heart goes out to these well –meaning guys. I want the #MeToo movement to continue till it changes gender equations. I am proud of living in transitional times, and will be happy to see a…

    (as time goes by). I’ve found a few basic conditions that must always be met:
    Mutual respect, the best of friendship, mutual interests and ‘ everlasting love’!
    That will carry a loooong way through life!
    Fortunately if the 3 first are in place, the 4th will come nearly by itself!

    There is always the danger that the pendulum could swing way too far. It has done so, already, and so often-but in the other direction. I have taken a place alongside women, throughout the #MeToo process. We must all be careful, though, to not repeat the excesses of previous revolutions, which have only succeeded in bringing back the very things we loathe.
