Yesterday, when a former Facebook friend was calling feminists “the scum of the earth” & saying feminists are just ‘pissed off because they can’t get laid after 40’, Kashmiri Sheikh Imran rebutted him with a strong, no-nonsense defense of women. Today he messaged me saying he’d also bounced the fellow for being a hater. Part of his message was to say that “there will always be men who stand with women” & that “justice demands equality among all sexes & sections of our society.”

Women alway respect men who stand with them without bending a whit to political pressures. We’ve marched with them for women rights for decades now. But I think all of us will agree that it makes your heart sing when someone stands by your side duking it out with you. <3
