Women As Cows

Do some, don’t let me dare say more South Asian men treat their women like cows.

They think or maybe don’t think that we have feelings or a say in any matter.

I just received a call from a woman who told me that her husband and her father in law treat her like a cow. She lovingly cooked a meal for the entire family at two households and was met with disapproval of having too spicy something. These two men alone make her life miserable.  What about being Grateful? Compassionate? Then to threaten, if I treated you like other men treat their wives, you will know. Standards get even lower by the minute. As the old adage goes he does not hit you, so he treats you alright.

I am ashamed to even think or believe let alone write about this in a blog. However, as you can tell it has infuriated me enough to take a frying pan and hit them on their head to awaken some stars and tell them to wake up and smell the roses. Stop treating women as cows, they think, feel and above all are part of your family.

What are these men teaching their children how they should treat women? Who is going to end the cycle?

It is a power play or whatever it may be. I wish these men to come back as women, even better as cows in the next life to know how to treat a human being.

Then of course, there are some wonderful South Asian men (with their own quirks) who treat their women like Goddesses.

If you are marrying yourself or your daughter, make sure to see how is the guys relationship with his mother, his sister or even service people like receptionists/servers, how he treats and talks about the women around him.

South Asian women may not have a big economical return on investment in the eyes of the people or of consequence, however we are all one. Connected in the same web and as even a tiny part of our body has a tumor it affects the entire body.

If we turn a blind eye to injustices and mistreatments, how can we and our children be healthy, well and flourish?
