Twitter user explains harassment to men: ‘Imagine being kicked in the nuts’

New Delhi: Imagine being kicked in the nuts — with this line, a Twitter user has taken the Internet by storm after he took it upon himself to educate men about the intensity of sexual misconduct and why women are so angry about the way they have been treated.

Even as there has been an overwhelming outpouring of support for the #Metoo movement, sceptics have come up and trivialised the stories of harassment while questioning women’s response towards it. And therefore, through a series of tweets, Julius Ghost took up the task of spreading awareness about how episodes of sexual harassment impact women psychologically.

With a series of viral tweets, Ghost asked men to imagine being kicked in the nuts by women, over and over again and asked them to imagine being told constantly to protect their nuts. He asks how guys would feel if women constantly joke about it and if posters and advertisement in magazines featured men’s crotches, instead of their heads.

Through these hypothetical situations, he shows how sexual harassment and rape culture is normalised in our society, though on the other part if the gender is reversed, it becomes weird. He also explains how the blame is always placed on women instead of the other way round.

The series of tweets have generated a stir on Twitter and have been retweeted around 17,500 times.
