Is this really true?

I came across this post - text book in India that compares wives v/s donkeys!!... and the state officials say - "The comparison was made in good humor"... cmon I dont buy this!!.... How do they expect children to grow up and respect women... and we talk about living in the 21st century and about equality between men and women... But herez a very nice reply to the wives v/s donkeys comparison!


  • This happens because of the ingrained insensitivity towards women...and I think we all unconsciously engage in similar uncivilized behaviors...for example, the Sardarji jokes that we all enjoy...have we stopped for a minute to think what a Sardarji in the audience will feel...Tamil movies continually make fun of Tamil Brahmins - their culture, their lingo...

    I agree with your thought process that what we sow is what we reap...if text-books contain such asinine observations, then children will grow up (!) only to what they are today...
