Violence by women celebrated as “Brave.” This angers me.

The title of this video reads: “Brave woman chases and kicks pervert who sexually harassed her

This is the YouTube description from Channel4 News.

Watch the moment female jogger chases down man who sexually harassed her during run
Veena Ashiya Chindlur had been on her daily run in Bangalore, India, when a man started sexually harassing her

The moment a brave female jogger chased down her harasser and dished out her own unique brand of punishment has been caught on camera.

Veena Ashiya Chindlur had been on her daily run in Bangalore, India, when a man started sexually harassing her.

Rather than let it go – like many in the city have become accustomed to doing – she chased him down, made him get down on his knees and then kicked his head.

Veena’s friend recorded the whole incident on her phone and the pervert was later arrested by police, the Bangalore Mirror reports.

In the footage the man can be seen sheepishly running away from Veena – crash helmet in hand – but eventually kneeling down in front of her to accept his punishment.

KR Suryaprakash, 30, has been bailed after being accused of making lewd gestures and outraging the modesty of a woman.

Veena told the Indian paper police had been very supportive, but added that some people were e people “unable to digest the fact that women can also retaliate and called the incident orchestrated”.

She added: “My friend took out her phone to click his pictures and ended up shooting the episode. This is called orchestrated by some on FB (Facebook), which is very sad. The fact that women can react and hit back is just not acceptable in our society.”

My response:

“Brave” woman? Reverse the roles. A man chases a woman down the street, commands her to get on her knees and she complies, he then kicks her in the head. The description reads “when a man started sexually harassing her.” There is no evidence of this.

Bravery is the demonstration of standing up to a danger when the only other choice is to cower. I see no sign of danger on her part, in fact, the only thing coming close to being a danger is the woman who pursued a man, cowed him, then assaulted him.

The person that chose this title for the video needs to get over their ideological leanings, their sexist attitude, use a dictionary and learn to report the truth of what is shown.

“Woman chases down man and assaults him.” Would be accurate and just a click-baitable.

Shame on the woman, shame on many people that are reporting on an assault on a man–on anyone–as a positive example.

Here are some other titles for the same video, as found in the right hand “related suggestions” bar.

Should a man have the right to chase down and assault a woman for being rude to him, if this was even the case? How many “opportunities” to be a miscreant have I missed over a lifetime of rude comments made by women? Dear mothers and fathers, your daughters have missed out on countless “brave,” and “courageous” assaults. Surely if this was right in this scenario, it must be right when the roles are reverse.

I could go on about the commentary, but I’m much too annoyed at the moment.

Parents, would you want your daughter to be treated this way? If not, do you want your daughter treating other people this way?

Shameful behaviour being celebrated is the sign of a corrupt society.

    How big a threat can he be and how brave or oppressed can she be if he unquestioningly obeys her command?

      Precisely. Like a servant submitting to a master. In her book, The Feminine Mystique, Betty Friedan spoke of “the problem,” a problem that many women were aware of, but had no name for it. Simone de Beauvoire, a French woman, had called it Le problème de la femme soumise: the problem of the submissive woman. We are now living in a time where a good many men, from the trash collector to world leaders are submissive to women, generally, if not in particular.

  2. That is appalling. “Brave” in the face of complete compliance and submission is actually a bit cowardly, like a bully.
