Reply to Blaming the Victim
By Vidhyalakshmi Rao
Charu Beta, you could not sleep that night when you got to know about the gang rape of a male dog. You have not heard the worst yet. There have been several instances like this before. I will take you through a journey of how this has been happening. It is going to be a long journey. Be ready for this article being posted in parts.
If you read the Devi Bhagavatam, you will know that there was a demon called Mahishasura. He was conceived by the mating of a demon and a buffalo. A demon fell in love with a female buffalo and kept it with him. The result of their mating was Mahishasur – part demon and part buffalo. Mahishasur became a menace to all beings after getting boons for his penance. It was lady power that overcame this demon-animal – the Devi Durga.
Recently, it was a male dog, who was raped. If it had happened to a female dog, what progeny would have been born to the bitch? Feeling disgusted? There is more to come. Stay tuned…
