The time of ignoring the egregious exploitation of women has elapsed. Social media is indeed the platform and stage where these hideous plights of people take their seats, pledging to be the audience of delirious statuses and bundles of pictures.
Pictures can be provocative with almost no repercussion, until a person paddles into a pool of perverts tweaking at the life-buoy to expose more and more. Sometimes the pictures don’t even branch into provocation but, the petty juvenile bunch scrutinize eyes, noses, mouths. It’s this irrevocable marauding tale which re-surfaces, churned and disguised by murky water.
Assumptions are contained within a barrel of ignorance. When the mind is urged to materialize the ‘unyielding pervert’; an unscrupulous, slumped, bedraggled man manifests. Do we ever anticipate a woman? These barbaric assumptions shield them from ever being the cause of concern. Personas are unprecedented especially online, so why is that people are willing to splurge their whole identity online? Posers dangle from your preferences dotted on their own fictitious contract outlining the very ‘takeover’ of you. All information provided by the victim is distorted and forced into a miasma of forced control.
Do we ever question the culprit to be a woman? The butchering of innocence with splatters of sickening agog arise. The act itself perpetuates misogyny and perhaps that’s why the woman is extracted. Yet the numbing truth is that there is so much women involved (outnumbered by men- of course) in this scandal but it is overlooked. The drive, you question? Well there’s a deluge of plausible reasoning. Maybe the two startling factors reside in: jealousy and revenge.
Fuelled by an unresolved spat or unnerved by the tantalizing array of girls. I have witnessed women cursing others who reap 200 likes. Why do they feel so threatened by a number? Why do they feel so elevated by debunking girls with jeering comments? Why do they feel the need to lash out and subject other women with such calumny? Is the unity of women slowly but steadily shredding?
Online potency is battled with the duality of benefits and abuse. The desire to immerse oneself into the depths and channels of the web should be embarked with caution. Derision will mark almost every track, massacring threads of your personality. Pictures will swing like a boomerang, sometimes tangled in a trap. Cocooned by a heap of vile hands. The motions of the pictures are always tracked. It flies all over with its title disfigured and welcomed into a community of lechers.
So don’t let assumptions cloud reality. This whizzing realm of predators is not just exclusively men.
