I got the following comment yesterday from a fellow Indian sister, who seemed particularly upset with my post on masturbation.
Indian girls doesnt do mastebation. Only immoral and shameless girls like you who writes about personel things on net. you are also living with a boy without any marrige shame on you. you are dirting our name of Indian girls . you are going to hell……………………
Ah! Abida, Abida! Do you see what they have turned you into? A subservient head-shaking passive object staring at the ceiling fan when your man is doing his business.
Pray, tell me this. Since you’ve so vehemently argued in your email that Indian girls don’t masturbate, allow me to ask you this: do they have sex? Please tell me you’re not shaking your head right now because I used a dirty word.
Sex isn’t dirty. Masturbation isn’t dirty. Well, unless it is dirty, if you know what I mean.
And have you ever had an orgasm? And no, it’s not the feeling you get when you’re scrubbing floors or doing the laundry or taking your husband’s shoes off his feet and washing them with rose water and he looks at you approvingly. And no, god won’t punish you if you have one. Would your mom grudge your using a sewing machine she gave you at your wedding?
Seriously. Go wash your face. And then go get a life.
