The Internet has seen a lot of positive and negative impact when a conversation makes round online. Slut-shaming and demeaning girls online in only one of the major issues. Indian influencer Saloni Chopra shares her bit and points out the same online.

Saloni Chopra is a popular name on the Internet, not only as an actress, but most of us girls recognise her as an activist fighting for Gender Equality, and creating quite a stir on the Internet with her bold and ferocious moves to talk about the otherwise uncomfortable topic for a lot out there, Womanhood. 

Yesterday, Saloni shared a picture on Instagram where she and her partner Rahul both are topless, along with the series of comments that she received in the past, that are loud enough for a deaf to hear the sound of sexualism, women objectification and inequality. 

Saloni Chopra wrote, “The problem isn’t that we sexually objectify women. The problem is that when we do, we are aggressive, abusive, and threatening. 

When men are sexually objectified they’re still dominating in those situations, even in fantasies they seem to have more power and control, but when we sexually objectify women we automatically suppress them in those scenarios. They’re more often than not begging, controlled, punished for being ‘bad girls’. Most people actually want to be desired sexually, be considered attractive, be often appreciated for their appearance and not just their minds… but when topless men put their clothes back on, Society goes back to seeing those men as smart, talented, educated people. Sexy men can be chefs, lawyers, fathers, CEOs, entrepreneurs.

But women, on the other hand, we only sexually objectify and forget that there’s more to them than their physical attractiveness. We forget that a hot woman topless or in a bikini can also be a doctor, a mother, a teacher, a scientist, a lawyer, a boss. Instead, we turn her into a whore, a slut, a rand, a bitch – for what? Because she chooses to own her body? Because she decides when she’ll expose? Because she speaks up?

When you threaten a man, you tell him you’ll break his face. When you threaten a woman, you tell her you’ll tear up her vagina.

Sexual objectification isn’t the problem here, the problem is that we then use sex as a way to threaten women. The problem is that a sexy man is a lot more in society than just sexy, while a sexy woman, is just that.

It’s disturbing that we think women deserve to be slut-shamed, sent unsolicited dick pics, abused every day on the internet and sexually harassed through rape threats for simply demanding equal rights and the freedom to choose, whatever their choice may be.

And when we demand a change in attitude as a society your solution is that women should stop being such whores, women should stop “asking for it” 

The solution society offers to solve the problem women face, is to make women the problem. Be accountable for your misogyny instead of gaslighting women into thinking that asking for equality is where they went wrong.”

Saloni Chopra is known to be vocal about issues on pressing matters through her Instagram account and this is not the first time that she has posted something like this. Undoubtedly, she has earned an army of supporters who resonate with her thoughts but a lot of her posts have brought some negative responses too in the past.

While the picture received immense support and love, the hatred poured here was in equal amount. What a lot of them commenting fail to understand is that she is not demanding equality in standing topless in public, that’s just a metaphor! We, women, want way more than that. Yes, we want equality and there is no shame in wanting and demanding something we deserve. Even if it is as basic as standing topless in public!

Today, the couple shared this post on their feed:

Yesterday was a very difficult day for us to get by emotionally… we’re not sure if you follow our individual pages, but we’ve had a lot of things going on in our lives, conversations about the world, about our societies, about gender equality, about whataboutism… and often it can be extremely deflating, disappointing, exhausting… especially if you’re as sensitive as us. But that’s what you have your safe space for – your home, the people you love, and the ones that allow you creatively express yourself, or just give you the space to just be yourself…so you can heal again. And sometimes, all of the above is one person 🙂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌀Speaking of our individual pages, we’ve always wanted to know, how did you find us? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌀Do you follow either one of us, or both, or just our travel page? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tell us in the comments✨📝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #saerahstamps #couple #mumbai #stayhome #saerahstampsxmumbai #lockdown #india #genderequality
