Delhi Based Journalist Slut Shamed By 10-Year-Old Boys. Where Are We Heading?

Women have been told what to do and what to wear since forever now. It is only recently that women from different spheres of life have come forward to speak about the issues they have to face as an independent woman living in the country. But what do you do when children who apparently are the future of the country start moral policing you?

A Delhi journalist identified as Tanya Dubey claimed that she was left shocked when children who were believed to be below 10 years of age went on to pass lewd comments on her only because her legs were visible. Tanya was in a cafe in the Meherchand market with her friend when a couple of kids came knocking at the glass door that they were facing. The kids soon joined by some more kids allegedly started staring at her legs that were visible because she was wearing a dress.

They allegedly verbally harassing her and told her that they could see “everything”. The children even entered the cafe and started abusing because the woman did not buy them food or give them money forcing her to call the manager of the cafe. The kids laughed at Tanya when she threatened them to call the police.

“We proceeded to ignore the young beggars as we usually do on the street. Things got worrisome when I found more kids joining them and then proceeding to look at my legs that were visible in a dress,” she said in a Facebook post.

“What happened next was unbelievable and they started commenting on my dressing, how they could see ‘everything’ even as I was sitting on a chair with my legs crossed,” Tanya added.

Tanya and her friend chose to walk away and proceeded towards metro station. However, they decided to follow them and even allegedly threw stones at them that did not hit them. “When they saw us ignoring them, they threw stones that didn’t hit us. I can’t believe I was scared of kids today,” she said.

Tanya took to Facebook to narrate the entire incident. Read her post here.
