Bollywood actress, Esha Gupta, has recently found new fame by accusing a hotelier in Delhi of “raping her with his eyes.”
Ms. Gupta further explained that the man continually stared at her for a long time and was a “future rapist.”
She denied that her appearance or bodily attire (or lack thereof) had any influence on what happened.
Meanwhile, in recent global movements toward increasingly scanty--as with female figure skaters, tennis stars, and hockey and soccer players--an angry new movement has begun.
The essence of the new campaign is: “Men must control their eyes—to avoid being labeled ‘eye rapists’ and subject to criminal proceedings!"
A furious controversy has begun, with world-renowned medical experts weighing in.
Big Pharma is interested in developing “restraining supplements,” as with a new pill called The Liberating Epstein Wonder Drug (or LEWD).
Biologists at leading universities have also joined the discussion.
Dr. Manuel Jacksworthy, from MIT, for example, says that women must not expect that millions of years of evolution in the male sexual interest can be “turned off” if they continue “to insist on scanty.”
Nudity is now a favorite pastime for many females, including running races through city streets and in political protests, where baring the body is supposed to have a powerful impact on legislation.
Dr. Jacksworthy states: “What’s mostly being legislated is aroused male interest in exploration of female body parts.”
“Females can’t have it both ways. If they want scanty, they should expect ‘eye rape'," he said.
Representatives of a newly burgeoning female activism, the “Scanty Forever Movement!” (SFM), vigorously deny the professor's position on this matter.
They insist the problem is entirely “the barbaric savagery of uncontrolled male lust.”
Other experts add that the LEWD “anti-eye-rape pill” under development might mean males will no longer take any interest whatever in the naked (or near naked) female body.
Would females prefer their scantiness be noticed only by other females?
“Males have no excuse for their eyes automatically tracking every near nude female on the sidewalk or in the supermarket. Let them control themselves for once!”
Although this may not be an answer to the question, the controversy is likely to continue until females turn to alternative methods of expression other than disrobing.
