pornography be given free play when the state remains an integral expression of male power There are many things we need to know that we wish we did not have to The existence of domestic violence against women and children is one of them The use of pornography as a tool for learning and justifying such brutal behaviouris another We have lived in denial of links between the two for too longdespite ample evidence that patterns of abusive sexual dominance are often first picked up by males at home and then honed through viewing porn that furthers the idea of the inferiority of all females Recent cases of gangrape also verify what feminists and criminologists have been saying for a long time: violent abusers of young women and female children are mostly repeat offendersand known area bullies Such men will become even more prone to abusive predatory behaviour after bouts of heavy drinking and collective viewing of pornographic material with similarly inclined male friends Despite thisthe moment the issue of banning pornography or regulating the sale of alcohol comes uploud protests eruptciting the constitutional right to earning a livelihood and the basic freedom of speech and expression Thinkfor a minutethat material containing propaganda justifying the killing or torture of specific groups on the basis of caste or creed were made freely available Would we not become outragedknowing that such propaganda precedes and justifies casteist and ethnic violence Whythenshould the easy availability of pornographic material depicting the grossest forms of violence against women and childrenremain an exceptionand Article 19(1) be invoked for its continuance Even in a liberal statecan pornography be given free playeven when it comes at the cost of the free speech of women victims whoas it isdo not have full freedom of speech within homes Liberal theoreticians of both sexes are so confused by the din of the erotic versus obscene debate that they mostly refrain from delving into how pornography capitalises on the tacit approval for male freedom of speech by the same state and the civil society that say they can book offenders only if the victims speak up Even those outraged by the police dragging its feet and demanding better safety and policing of streetsended up looking schizoid as they asked for dramatically swift state intervention and gory reprisals against the guilty on behalf of the sexually abused women and childrenquite forgetting that they had found the state so useless that they wanted all leaders to resign The stateas victims of sexual violence encounter it first handis not a free floating reality It has a clear face and voice: that of the SHO who tries to bribe a child victims father and buy his silencethat of an ACP who slaps a young female protesteran MP who looks upon the anger of women protesters dismissivelycalling them a bunch of dented and painted females With such movers and shakerscan even a vociferous demand for positive state intervention tilt the scales of justice in favour of women and children Can the battered victims and their families be coaxed into believing that the state as it ismust be viewed as a primary tool of their empowerment It is true that gender is first the construct of a social systembut in a country like oursit has a long history that predates democracy There are many who still seek to explain the upswing in rapes as linked to the wide dissemination of pornographic material to new technology They like to remind us that we were a much kindersafer society just a century agobefore the birth of the present day Westernised system But they are wrong Burning up TV sets or shops selling DVDs will not help Violent and abusive behaviour against the weakwomen and children in particularhas had a long history in India Less than a century and a half agonotorious gangs of thugs roamed our unsafe highwaysunwanted widows were routinely being sent away when not being burnt on pyreschildren from poor families were being sold to the highest bidders by their impoverished families and unpaid labour was routinely subjected to hair-raising acts of sadism by landlords and princelings I have heard many stories about howearlierin large joint familiesyoung girls and indigent widows felt the spectre of molestation by some male relative or family friend hanging over their heads Some girls were saved from predatory family males by their prudent and watchful motherssome were not But all of themwhen they reported sexual abuse to mothers or family elderswere forced to hold their tongues for fear of family reprisals and a social stigmatising that would render the victim as unmarriageable commodity Fact issince male dominance over women remains basically sexualeven in a democratic set-uprape and porn are not deviant phenomenabut only one extreme example of the way in which men will use women and simultaneously show them their true place within a state they control and have moulded in their image Since the modern Indian state is founded on male powermale dominance over women is clearly visible sociallyeconomically and politically Since nothing is gender neutral in Indiaand the state remains an integral expression of male power from the thana to Jantar Mantar to Parliamenthow can it serve the interests of women on whose brutal dominancepowerlessness and guaranteed silence its porn and sex industries thrive Go to the police first Ironically the thanedar who lets boys be boysfinds young women out late at night on streetswomen in pubs with male or
