Why it was completely imbecilic of you to outrage over Salman Khan’s comments.
Salman Khan says he felt like a raped woman during the gruelling shoots of Sultan and you outraged.
Well, to put it straight, there is stupid, and then there is pure retarded. Congratulations to you for being the missing link.
The moment I heard that people were shouting themselves hoarse over the comment on the internet, my belief in the legitimacy of facepalm being the leading asana for international yoga day became as steadfast as Rakhi’s faith in “mere Karan Arjun aayenge”.
Moving on. Lemme ask you this. Would you be outraged if say, a donkey starts braying? I shall assume a ‘no’ for an answer, cuz if you know anything about donkeys, it’d be that they bray (in addition to the fact that they also look immensely cute). It’s natural for them to do so.
Then WHY would you outrage when Salman Khan says something stupid. It’s not like he’s known for his pithy commentary on the state of economic disparity causing human rights violations in Africa. Or other stuff that requires any more mental capability than that required by a monkey throwing his poop at whatever the monkey wants to throw his poop at.
This is the same man who has wonderfully provided us with thoughts such as this one:
This is the same 50 year old Salman Khan who has been dating some of the hottest women in India (and abroad) and still proclaims that he is a virgin. So either he is being honest and none of those women slept with him due to his repellant stupidity (since the man looks about okay), or he was stupid enough to not know what to do once they’d provided their assent, or he is stupid enough to believe that the audience will believe in the crap he was dishing out.
This way, or that, he is inarguably stupid. Stupid people say stupid shit. Also, stupid people get outraged when stupid people are doing their existential duty by being stupid.
quod erat demonstrandum
Some of you denizens belonging to the feminazi party’s wing handling the comments sections in various forums will say, “but as a human being”.
Now, WHICH aspects of human beings make them such a shining example of righteousness, citing which you plead the case?
We kill other species without an iota of guilt. We kill our own species without an iota of guilt. We’ve used rape and mutilation as preferred weapons of destruction since the being of us. Hell, our very existence on this planet is the cause of slow and painful disappearance for all other life forms.
So “as a human being”, I think it was a very human thing Salman Khan just said. He was just ‘being human’.
Now for the sake of argument, we set this mythical not-once-did-a-wrong example of a human as a benchmark.
Please explain how Salman Khan comes even in the light-year vicinity of that mythical being?
From battered women to slaughtered wildlife to self driving cars that ran over people, I am sure you will find the man guilty of crimes much larger magnitude than a retarded quote in an interview.
So either you accept that he is the very sort of person who would say stuff like he said, in which case outrage would be an exercise in futility.
Or you ensure a logical cessation of the earlier outrages. Failing which you’d be the person who didn’t construct an efficient drainage system after an earlier deluge and now is cursing the clouds for a sprinkling of rain.
That. Is. Stupid.
