A Dumb Response [Updated]

During a council proceeding, a CCTV was 'caught' zooming on one of the reporter's thigh instead of the proceeding! Read the initial report HERE. Usual reactions like havoc, police report and 'investigation' followed it. But the comment given by the council president caught many by surprise. You can read it HERE. This is what I call a dumb response.

I'm reserving my comment on this. Will update again when I have cool down a little.

As expected, The council president is being slammed by numerous groups, as expected. Read it HERE, HERE , HERE and HERE. Reactions which I knew who come sooner or later. We have discussed this issue of sexy-women-asking-to-be-raped many times. In the end, we always come to the conclusion of victims should not be blamed. Yet, the issue never dies. After sometime all the discussion, the explanation soon forgotten and we are all back to square one - handling critism from male chauvinist who knows nothing else other than blaming the women for the harassment and discrimination we face. Harassments and violence on women happens regardless of her looks, her age or even her attire. Will the council president say the same thing if this happened to one of his own family member? I don't think he would say "Oh, this happened because my xxx didn't wear her tudung." or "I should make sure my xxx stick to a dress code". He would have ragged with temper.

So, why the discrimination when it comes to someone else's daughter? Who gave this man the rights to disgrace another woman? Is mere apology is enough to undo the damage? For me, a man who doesn't respect another woman, do not deserve any respect either. He has lost the respect which the society gave him, I don't think he even deserves to be forgiven.

Ya its irresponsible replay of the president! Instead if he punishes the Cameraman, it will be a warning for others.
