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 better world. I hope the good guys get comfortable with the emerging world order, and we become pillars of support to each other.
