I have grown up in this biased society.
I have faced bias in school, college, leisure, profession and everywhere I have been in India.
For instance, when I was in school, the IIT form cost 650 INR for male candidates in the general category but it was free for females. Now, it is 325 INR for females. I don’t get the rationale behind this.
Are all females poor and cannot afford to buy the form?
Are all boys assumed to be rich and therefore they pay 325 /- more?
Please tell me the thought process behind this if you know it.
Another instance would be the free entry for girls inside clubs 😆. Well, this I get the rationale. But I wonder why don’t I see any revolt against this by females. This act clearly makes them look like something that I cannot say. But… they seem to be okay with this. Maybe they have become habitual by taking extra over men.
Another instance – companies are only hiring female candidates specifically to eliminate the competition. Maybe they want to prove that females can’t compete against men. I don’t get the rationale behind this. They say they want to bring the female number equal to men – by – discriminating the process itself 😂 killing the talent. Hurting the industry by hiring the best from the rest instead of hiring the actual best (read again).
These are just a very few examples out of thousands of discrimination that men face every day in India.
It saddens me to even talk about these things, but sometimes it’s important to point it out.
Maybe it will improve someday and finally, females will actually compete with men shoulder to shoulder, face to face without discrimination.
