Chennai Journalists at a press meet I didn’t know I was supposed to attend and rushed to had photographers zooming into my arms, armpits, breasts while I adjusted my hair. Multiple youtube channels shamed me for wearing a T Shirt and a full skirt 🙂— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) December 2, 2019
Plus the caste angle.
Plus – Society likes a dead girl. They dont like women who fight, speak, say they have been groped / raped / molested and go on to live lives. In their minds a ‘victim’ is supposed to LOOK a certain way. Hell, people criticise Nirbhaya’s mother for fighting and ‘coming on TV.’— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) December 2, 2019
Do ask yourself – How many influential, rich men with politician buddies who tweeted “heart is bleeding”, “need strict laws” – worked with NGOs and lawyers to change policy, maybe helped rape victims hire good lawyers, use their social capital to bring change via PSAs?— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) December 2, 2019
On seeing these tweets of Chinmayi, one of her follower who felt that Vairamuthu didn’t deserve “Mr.” infront of his name, wrote “”Mr.” Vairamuthu ! That rotten scum deserves no such title.”
