  1. Are you serious? Free speech and not hurt anybody? That’s not free at all. Who made up that clause, anyway?

    I agree with the spirit of your post, but things like not staring at a woman (or anyone!) or using a woman’s attire as an excuse to harass her are just common sense/basic decency. How do they even relate to free speech?

    And what about flirting, friendly banter, a genuine compliment or asking a girl out? Too often that is considered to be “Eve Teasing” in India. Consider the following simple social experiment. You, as a female, can ask 10 random men out for a drink or tell them that their outfit looks good and they will all almost certainly be pleased by your remarks. But a man in India risks getting lynched for doing the same to female strangers. I would wager that at least 2 out of 10 women will slap the guy and find such an interaction offensive and outrageous.
