Twitteratis on Saturday evening were bashing a couple for being ‘shameless’ enough to make out in an auto.
A woman with the username @memesahaab climbed her ladder to overnight fame by sharing the video that went viral in a day fetching her a whopping 6.4K views and 200+ followers in a blink.
However, I may have a different and a saner point of view of here. I fail to understand how a couple having an intimate moment is shameless and a woman recording a couple without their consent is not.
What’s Wrong with The Tweet
Women all over the world are fighting their way to make the society understand the mere concept of consent and then we, have a woman here, taking pride in her ‘amazing’ sense of humor.
While she along with millions of self-proclaimed social police like her judged and shoved the placards of ‘sanskaar’ on someone else’s face.
Another grave dimension to this is the fact that the couple having their intimate moments, now eyed on a public scale, could bear serious repercussions of this in their personal lives.
If you think I’m overreacting, you need to read incidents of couples committing suicide after their “sexually explicit” videos went viral online.
Meanwhile we here are condemning the actions of the person who has shamelessly captured the couple and people like @memesahaab, who is shamelessly glorifying her new stardom that she has achieved at the stake of selling someone’s privacy online.
However, among moral policing and judgmental tweets, there was a breath of fresh air in the form of a tweet made by @neerjadeodhar, who called out the woman for “gloating” out on receiving followers.
Our thoughts resonate with her, for having the nerve to take a stand against this horrific indignity.
Similar Incidents of Non- Consensual Distribution of Sexually Explicit Content
Very recently, students from National PG College, Lucknow, were recorded while they were kissing in public. As a result, the students were rumored to be rusticated from their college while they were in their final years.
Some even claim that one or both the partners committed suicide to save the heads of their families. While we don’t know how credible the rumors are, we can definitely leave room for readers’ interpretation here.
Laws against Non- Consensual Distribution of Sexually Explicit Content
Non-consensual recording of someone’s private moments is not just morally wrong but a serious criminal offence.
A person guilty of propagating sexually explicit images or videos can be convicted under Article 67 and 67A. A person can be booked under Article 66 E for violation of privacy and capturing sexually explicit content without the consent of the parties involved.
In strong words, we condemn the person who encroached upon someone’s privacy and made it a matter of public mouth .
If You’re reading this, @memesahaab, I hope that you, being a woman would realize that it’s a matter of shame on your part to find a potential meme at the cost of someone else’s privacy.
I hope that next time when you’d mindlessly click on the ‘share’ button, you would realize that it can take a toll on someone else’s life. There is a fine line between comedy and offence. I hope you’d draw the line next time.
