    What is wrong with the current crop of politicians?. Dumb as hell. They come up with the most bizarre reason to explain rapes or even justify it.

    Rapes happen because men and women interact freely: Mamata

    After the Haryana ministers and Khap panchayats, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has come up with her bizarre reasoning for the increasing number of rape cases in the country. Mamata said that rape cases are on a rise in the country because men and women interact with each other more freely now.

    “Earlier if men and women would hold hands, they would get caught by parents and reprimanded but now everything is so open. It’s like an open market with open options,” she said as quoted by IBNlive.

    The Trinamool Congress chief alleged that a section of media was suppressing facts and causing “news pollution”, pointing to projection of few rape incidents in the state. “Everyday rape incidents are being highlighted as if the entire state has become the land of rapists. Rape is sought to be glorified by these people. This will not be tolerated by people. I would like to say that negative journalism only destroys and it is time to champion positive journalism,” she said.

    The Chief Minister took a dig at a section of the media, particularly some electronic news channels, for targetting her government by dishing out “canards and exaggerated and negative news items” to show the administration in bad light.

    “Wrong news items and canards are being circulated by a section of the media, particularly some news channels, to target her government. They are even distorting my own version,” Mamata said after releasing the special puja (festival) edition of Trinamool Congress organ “Jago Bangla”, in Kolkata.

    Banerjee alleged that news items were being tailored to serve business interests and that “in some of the media there exist dadagiri and didigiri”.

    Challenging those daring to control her government, she said instead of doing so in individual capacity, I would like to ask them to join politics and run the government.

    Banerjee regretted that the positive side of her government was not being highlighted by these media and alleged these people are bent upon demolishing Bengal’s culture.

    Asserting that she has no lust for power, Banerjee said, “I will like to warn those spreading canards against me that it will not pay.”

    I don't think that mixing with females would be the reason for rapes.

    If one reads Suhel Seth's column in Telegraph's Grafiti, one would see that sex has become a sort of 'chalta hai' issue and is no longer a big deal.

    Therefore, it could be that those who are 'left out' feels that they must also be permitted that sort of a 'closeness' and even if force is required.

    I really don't know the answer.

    Just guessing.

    its a cycle. Women are not educated. The child (read male child) gets no lessons/education/ethics from mom about treating girls and females. Those males in turn treat their wives as second class human and cycle continues. The friends company also matters. its all because of Environment. people learn from peers.

    +1.
    It happens because our boys are fed with inhibitions, shame, taboo and maze of socio-religious if-then-else to deal the with opposite gender. Even parenting coverage is found lacking in these areas.
    Eventually the man finds himself unable, unequipped to communicate and express himself effectively/accurately in a mixed society.
    Gradually the frustration builds up and we know what happens next. :tsk:

    Rapes happen because of hot-cold empathy gap.

    "A hot-cold empathy gap is a cognitive bias in which a person underestimates the influences of visceral drives, and instead attributes behavior primarily to other, nonvisceral factors."

    Here again we see a fine example of the distorted thinking of an Indian politician. This woman fails to recognize the fact that the primary crime here is sexual assault not intermingling of the sexes. The root cause of this crime is the absence of adequate law and order, something that is supposed to serve the overwhelming majority by keeping them safe from the minority that consists of violent criminals and bringing said violent criminals to swift justice in order to deter others who contemplate criminal activities.

    I love how she brazenly shirks responsibility by laying the blame squarely upon the citizens and victims themselves. She is basically trying to pass off a structural deficiency as an issue of decreasing morality. This is BS. It falls within the government's purview to provide effective law and order, clearly something she has failed to do as a leader. Also given the fact that India is not guided by the same principles espoused by the taliban, men and women are free to mingle in an open society.

    Somebody blamed Fast Food for increasing number of rapes, I think it is someone from Khap.

    Another :facepalm: from Mamta.
    Sick minds are raping infants too. Haryana is facing serious issues. They have a low female-male ratio and add to that loonies there living with their minds stuck in the stone age whose politicians call for early marriage to stop rapes. As if the Haryanavis ask the women if they are married or not before raping.
