Kantipur news poll result : really bothered me

19 Jan , Kantipur news Poll question :

महिलामाथि हुने यौन दुर्ब्यबहारको मुख्य दोषि को ?
क. कानुनको अभाव
ख. अभद्र पुरुष
ग. महिला आफै
‘what a ridiculous option !’ I thought after I heard the third option ..

Oh! But the results

क. कानुनको अभाव – 20%
ख. अभद्र पुरुष -20%
ग. महिला आफै -60%

In Nepal, most news viewers are male (most women are too busy to finish their chores so that they can catch up the hindi soaps)

Among the total viewers too , most voters are male .( most …

……women are unemployed, do not have mobile sets, and are (made) too passive to make their participation)

So, the vote results represent the average mentality of middle and upper class so called educated aware males.

Questions raised over my head :

a. the vote result is insignificant as any prankster can vote

b. people really believe that women are themselves responsible for the sexual harassment
(uttauli gai baghle khai … )

c. men are guilty of their acts of sexual harassment and try to shift the blame on the victims. Women too have guilt over their own sexuality and are very hostile towards female sexuality.

(what wrong have I done assaulting the girl as she has dressed so provocatively)

(what wrong the poachers have done by killing the rhino as they carry so provocatively precious horns?)

  24. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.

  27. Another of those, we women are weak-oppressed kind-men-are-the-suppressor-kind. I see no reason why it is the men who are at fault here. Maybe you need to date more often … guys that is … lol

  28. Women too have guilt over their own sexuality and are very hostile towards female sexuality.


    Could you please further elaboate what is the meaning of the above sentence. I tried to read many times and frankly but could not establish link between guilt and voting.

  29. aha,pawan, GA. Dovan knows everything about males: how much they vote? how they harass(bill clinton and monica lewinsky)? she will be next Monica Lewinsky no doubt. Her nearby relatives,friends, not get close to her. She will prove some thing genetically that you(Male/Female both, as she hates males most then other Females) harrassed her. BEWARE of the DOG that Bites YOU or might bite you. DO not trust her. I do not want to see Lewinsky story repeated.

  30. कस्तो फास्ट भन्या। ल अब तेस्रो प्रश्न।
    कानुन को अभाव हुनुमा मुख्य दोषीको?
    क बुद्दिको अभाव
    क बलको अभाव
    ग तपाई आफै

  31. लौउ, डि२ भन त।

    क कानुनको अभाव
    ख पुलिसको अभाव
    ग तपाई आफै

    २) नेताहरु भ्रष्ट हुनुमा मुख्य दोषीको?
    क कानुनको अभाव
    ख पैसाको अभाव
    ग तपाई आफै

    नेपालीहरु मर्न, मार्न त ठि-ठिकै।अब दिमाग चलाउन कति तेज छ त?

  32. Anish, do not act so dumb…

    i have said ‘most’ voters are men, not ‘all’.

    if u really want to know the ratio of participation, just visit this blog and u will know the ratio of male amd female bloggers

    because women’s participation is so low, this has been man’s world and vice versa..

    and i have also mentioned women may also vote for option c.
    if u have not read properly,
    Women too have guilt over their own sexuality and are very hostile towards female sexuality.

  33. In Nepal, most news viewers are male (most women are too busy to finish their chores so that they can catch up the hindi soaps) Among the total viewers too , most voters are male.( most women are unemployed, do not have mobile sets, and are (made) too passive to make their participation)

    As if you are monitoring the voting system and counting the numbers of male voters. Just because the (c) Option got 60% vote, which suprised you a lot, how can you blame male only for that. Comparison to male mobile users, women are not behind them, Even +2 student (laides) uses mobile these days who are unemployed(expensive mobiles can been seen on their hands too), they knows how to use mobile set and participate on such things.

    I think this posting is just to show your angerness towards male.

  34. I had not meant that Kantipur should not have presented the third option.
    but i had found the option so illogical that i thought it would not get any vote.

    but to my great surprise, it got 60% vote..

  35. as I cannot write sweet and creative nepali like dovan , “Mahila AAfai” is just a option that can be presented in multiple choice. it is not necessary to portray all males are aggresionists,chauvanists,Harraseing,arsonists,sexualists,and nobody is born singly to mother. Do you mean to elaborate that all fathers/to-be-fathers have harrased women because they produce children? you hate your father too much? or your BFs who harrased you?

  36. In the context of polls and explanations a, b, c, d,…….., even in an educated family, Daughters are kept far from the maddening crowd which is why, they can’t risk exploring the outer world whereas Sons are supposedly said to be born for challenges, risks and exploration. There goes the misconception.

    There are examples in the other chain of posts “Vagina Monologues”, Ang-San-Suki being one of the victims putting up with exiled life.
    See, when you break the rules or tradition or norms (say crossing, Laxman Rekha), no matter how genuine you are, you will be bitched at any cost and ultimately you would have to go through the fiery test.
    Ramayan ko Sita le jasto fire test diyera kaha sadhye .. yo Kaliyug ma???

    So, you may lead a life of Charitrahin Naari or Do what you perceive as the best thing or Fight for women’s right by voicing your opinion or Fight for your daughter’s right or Skillfully handle the post of manager or female boss (I would always look up to her as a guru or mentor). The most important thing is, never loose your self-respect and self-esteem, so that when you look yourself in the mirror, you can see your soul, your inner beauty irrespective of your outer appearance; whether provocative or offensive. It’s a grace and bliss for us (Nepalese Ladies) that we don’t have to wear BURKHAS. Can you imagine professional ladies attire of office(say,D2) as Burkha???(No Way!!)

  37. There is no doubt question is not phrased properely and pole is biased. However, although I can get the gist of the example provided by Dovan, the example of rhino and provocative woman is not correct. As far as Rhinos are concerened, they are rare, you have to go to a jugle to hunt them, you have to carry a gun etc. Whease the latter can be found in most of the places.

    With the risk of being unpopular (since it is a sensitive topic), as far as I can glean from my life experiences, many educated women I have met have also blammed the women. I am not sure if they would vote differently if voting would be confidential. However, I am confident that lots of women in villages including my mother would vote for (c). I can’t imagine them accepting some of the provocative dresses which are in display nowadays.

    For example if a girl goes to a late night disco party with provocative dress and on top of it boozes till she looses her senses, there is almost certain that a few guy would try to take the advantage of the situation.

  38. Thats not new news about kantipur tv’s poll and its three stupid options. I stopped watching a long time ago.

    And audiance–yes, most of them must be male–they just chose the sexiest option. Haha.

  39. Yeah. The question was not phrased properly.

    The bias could be the result of male voters as pointed out by Dovan.

    Did they disclaim that the results are not scientifically correct and error level?
