With every passing day, men hit a new low. The misogyny that’s sunk deep within them spills out at every stage of life they are in, even after they become parents.
The father of a first-year male undergraduate student of Kolkata’s St Xavier’s University lodged a complaint against the female professor of the university after discovering that his son was gawking at images of his professor in a swimsuit.
Instead of backing their employee as posting photos on a private Instagram is none of anyone’s business, the authorities forced her to resign on the charges of posting ‘objectionable’ and ‘inappropriate’ photos – which they claimed had ‘besmirched the reputation of the university’. It’s troubling how low they stoop to uphold their superficial dignity.
A student of St. Xavier’s Kolkata was recently caught looking at a pic of a Prof in her swimsuit (taken from her private IG). His father sent a letter to the uni condemning HER for his son’s leching.— Sukhnidh ⚆ _ ⚆ (@skhndh) August 8, 2022
Prof was forced to resign in a strikingly humiliating manner.
2022… damn. pic.twitter.com/2RNLnXBd0p
This event serves as a sobering reminder that a woman’s reputation is at risk, even at educational institutions. Instead of confronting his kid or at least attempting to normalise the female body, the father, who fears that his clean and devout son’s mind would be corrupted, wrote a letter to the university denouncing the professor. How messed up is that?
Twitter is enraged and can’t believe that it is the year 2022 that we’re living in.
This is sexual harassment, and there is no denying it. Moral policing, slut shaming and harassing someone for their private business not only creates a hostile work environment but also shows the absolute misogynistic mindset of the university. https://t.co/SKBqjR6UQX— Rutuja (ऋतुजा) 🇮🇳 (@Havaldarshinde) August 8, 2022
Instead of ‘shielding’ his son from objectifying the female body, he should’ve considered teaching and normalising the female body for him. Why would being an employee in an educational institution mean sacrificing the liberty to dress and posting on your own social media acc? https://t.co/WANsasdc5N— Batman’s girl (@rkivekiwife) August 9, 2022

And then we wonder why men grow up with such a huge sense of entitlement regarding their behaviour.— Richa Singh (@richa_singh) August 9, 2022
Terrible parenting. Pathetic is a mild word for such assholes https://t.co/h6ijsYsmTG
This pervert papa shouldn’t be allowed near the school for the girls’ safety. https://t.co/z3PKg9TeSL— Somya Luthra (@smyltr) August 9, 2022
This is so disgusting. She’s the victim here. What she does on her private account is no one’s business. Teach your son how to behave. https://t.co/CzwTxKzWHs— Jay (@rodribestdm) August 9, 2022
This is beyond belief. Also, the boy in question is 18 YEARS OLD for f’s sake, a young adult . There are so many layers of shameful, misogynistic, socially problematic behaviours here by the guy and his father and the administration, that I dont know where to begin. https://t.co/SAflXyXtLF— Sobhi Mohanty (@SobhiMohanty) August 9, 2022
the hypocrisy of educational institutions to bend themselves backwards just to maintain arbitrary social conduct while blithely disregarding the rot within (the system itself) is insane https://t.co/h4cop4ojbI— Ishita Sengupta (@MadameSengupta) August 9, 2022
Every time we take one step forward in bettering the plight of women in society, such a parent and author drag us two steps back. Shameful.
