You don’t have to be sorry, Sonali. There are two sides of every debate, one the popular one and the other side which sometimes gets itchy. There are women like the ones you mentioned, if it triggers some people so be it.
It’s time we understand the real meaning of feminism.

What you said was correct and you have maintained great composure in this write up too.
A stand was required. All men are thoroughly indebted to you for your words.
