As a guy who is born in a typical Indian Middle-class family, I have always been protective of the opposite sex. It may be the culture, society or my family giving me a one-eyed opinion about feminism. But as I have grown older may be learned to understand the hardships one has to go through for being objectified. Rightly said about the freedom and control aspect which is disguised for love.Hopefully, the current and our future generations do make up for the loss of what has happened in the past/present.
Thanks for the reality check ;)
