    It is classic reverse gender discrimination. The males, especially in India, have had a death grip over the other gender and now as the grip is slipping, they cry foul. Oh the poor soul of these men having to look at women with skimpy outfits and not be able to molest them or having to cover up in front of a woman. Oh the horror, the horror!

    You lack basic comprehension about the power structure between an employer and a employee or between two employees. In your house, a maid is your employee. Go find a maid who is going to be comfortable you parading around naked or semi-naked inside the house. Otherwise, if you maid creates a fuss, learn to deal with it. In a mall, the guards, sales clerk, sweepers, do not work for the average mall goer. There is no employee-employer relationship between the two kinds. If someone is wearing skimpy clothes, that person is not in the power structure that affects the mall employee. However, if one sales clerk comes to work wearing skimpy clothes and other employees or his/her employer feels uncomfortable, then there is a problem because it is happening in THEIR work environment. This is not the same as an average mall goer and someone who works at the mall. Looks like this is a bit too much for your backward mind. So let's just end the debate here. Please continue to look at the other gender through your myopic eyes, but rest assured that women are not ready to bark any more at your command necessarily. Times are changing.

    What? LOL ... There is big difference between workplace and and public place like a market or a mall. You are more than welcome to wear a tight fitting short and sleeveless t-shirt, or take the buttons off your shirt showing your hairy chest in a market . Trust me, no one will come and tell you to button it up. Now if you whip out your penis, then it is a matter of public decency and indecent exposure. I do not think the women who are wearing a skimpy outfits (although it may not be what you approve of) are whipping out their titties or showing her privates! Showing a bit of cleavage is accepted in today's modern society (we do not live in medieval times), but not in a workplace. And for men who are complaining, there is nothing preventing you from showing your cleavage (like showing your toned body or wearing really tight jeans showing off the tight butt or other muscles). Trust me, no one will tell you it is not appropriate. If you do not understand the difference between being in a publice place and a workplace, there I can't make you understand it. If you are uncomfortable someone wearing clothes you do not approve of in a public place, do not look at them or move to another area. In a workplace, you have to be there and you may have to work with that person. The level of comfort needed in a workplace is much more important than in a public place like a mall.

    4K UHD HDR

    that cable will support both 4k HDR-10 and Dolby Vision. There is nothing to support bandwidth up to 48 Gbps. 18 gbps will support any 4K high dynamic range format that is present today. Manufacturers will present arbitrary specs which are not necessary and jack up the prices when same performance can be obtained from a well made lower price cable. Belkin's price is not that outrageous. Some of the so called "audiophile" cable companies charge twice that amount for an HDMI cable. Sadly consumers do not do research and fall for that trap.

    you are confusing two different issues. Yes, the show is a bit over the top, and I would not go and watch her naked do a show, but it is voluntary and there is not abuse of power. No one is forcing anyone in the audience to come watch her or watch it online. However, if a maid is working in your house and you are parading around semi-naked, it is an abuse of power. It is a workplace for her and you are forcing her to be uncomfortable in her workplace. It is classic workplace harrasment. Would you parade around semi naked or would like someone to do that while you are at work? The same would hold for women as well. If this woman was your coworker and came to work semi-naked or in a skimpy outfit then that would be workplace harassment as well. I distinctly remember when I was early in my carrer work at Ford Motor Company, there was a black woman who wore very tight outfits that showed her curves aggressively and people complained, some of the complaints came from other female workers. She was approached by HR to wear more modest clothing and I have no problem with that.

    4K UHD HDR

    LOL, digital cables are not like analog cables. Spending $35 on a HDMI cable is insane when you can get the same performance from a $10 good construction high speed HDMI cable. And I am a audio-videophile with good equipment. I use these in my HT system and they are as good as any expensive cables for short runs. Now if you are running 20 ft+, yes there could a difference. For 6 ft or less, NO! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NQ9OQU2/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B00NQ9OQU2&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=f52e26da-1287-4616-824b-efc564ff75a4&pf_rd_r=T5J8Z6Y3T6YNECZZ1YSJ&pd_rd_wg=mtMrK&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&pd_rd_w=DWtYT&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pd_rd_r=a6f7b52a-d3ab-11e8-acb5-95f73567967b

    I never commented on her character as a decent human being. She appears to be a complicated woman and one tough to have a relationship with, but she is the first woman I have seen in Bollywood to take on the male dominated culture and the Bollywood establishment head on. And she is still one of the A-list actresses in the industry who can actually act. She is still there, establishment males have not been able to sideline her like others who speak up. So she is doing something right. She talks like she does not give a flying phuck. Why should women have to suffer and keep quiet and men get a free reign? If you think the whole global society is not male dominated, you are living in delusion. Do fake accusations happen for personal vendetta? Yes it does, but the overwhelming majority of sexual abuse/harrassment claims are true because men and women are wired different way and this is coming from me, a man! Regarding her claim against Vikas Bahl, I do not think she said that Vikas assaulted her. In response to the sexual allegation against Vikas made by another woman (which is most likely true), she said that in retrospect it corroborates her finding because of the behaviors she experienced and his stories of sexual conquests while he was married and mocking others for not being like him. In essence, she is saying that she does not feel, him hugging her and smelling her hair, although uncomfortable, amounted to sexual abuse for her even though it made her uncomfortable, but she can put two and two together and deduce that he could be a sexual abuser.

    Not necessarily true. Sexual abuse and assault has also to do with yielding power and misuse of power. Look at Harvey Weinstein. He was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood. Don't you think he would have had the best escorts possible every night if he wanted to? Same example can be given of a lot of powerful people who are sexual predators like Trump.

    Details please. What kind of abuse from each of them. I know Big B has had numerous affairs during his time, but sexual abuse allegations? We are interested in sexual abuse / harassment / assault issues, NOT consensual relationship, illicit or otherwise, or one night stands or having sex with paid call girls, etc.

    There is a big difference between being a difficult woman to have a relationship with and sexually assaulting / harassing someone.

    Writer and socialist Shobha De said on interview that the folks that are being outed as small fishes. The big fishes will still remain in power and continue to abuse. I want to know who the big fishes are? @UrmiSinhaRay what does your uncle say? We know Subhash Ghai is one, who else?

    I think getting into a fight with Kangana Ranaut is a big mistake. Now that is one Bollywood lady who is not a fake and looks like does not give a phuck!!!

    More and more struggling actresses are coming out! Accusations against Vicky Sidana .
  15. Again, I felt uncomfortable making that post as I am not at all clanish. I am sure with more mixing of cultures now in India views are more cosmopolitan within middle class and up.

    You can’t say that with certainty unless you have first hand knowledge.

    Men are pigs in general. At least, a considerable number of them. On top of them men in powerful positions have a sense of entitlement. And then Indian society is extremely patriarchal. So this is hardly surprising. I am glad this is coming out in the open and hope that the perpetrators are outed.
  18. Two Punjabi fellow grad students I knew used know here in the US used to constantly abuse a South Indian friend of mine for not speaking or knowing Hindi because "it is the national language." They always conversed in Hindi or Punjabi regardless of who were around them. Both of them were from Delhi. Maybe it is the Delhi in them that was obnoxious. Like I said, I never claimed that all Punjabis were obnoxious. Maybe my experience was skewed, but I observed that they are more extroverted than people from other races, generally speaking. Again being extroverted is not necessarily bad, unless it borders on the extreme.
  19. I thought Sidhu was a chewyt, no? So what’s the fuss? It is an a-hole being an a-hole. However, it is true that of all the Indians I have met, Gultis and Punjabis have been the most obnoxious. This is in no way a generalization and I have close friends from those two races who are great people, but they ones I found obnoxious were for the following reasons - those Punjabis think their culture should be universally accepted, everyone should speak Hindi and like North Indian cuisine, they are loudmouth and arrogant, etc. The Gultis were very obnoxious because of their backward social views, proudly touting th dowry system, extremely clanish, etc. Again, this is not a generalization, but only my observation of the Gultis and Punjabis I have come across and that too maybe about 50-60% of them. Others may have had a different experience. For other races, I have interacted with, the % is less. Aussholes exist in all forms and in all races. Again, please do not think I hate Gultis and Punjabis ... I don’t. It is not meant to be a generalization although the post may appear that way.

    Even with their second string bowlers Bewda and his Poyzz are sitting ducks!!
  21. Yep, looks like a total cluster-phuck. Typical Indian masala from the bowels of Bollywood!!
  22. I cannot say anything specific about the sexual harrasment claim on the set because it is impossible for an outsider, but there is clear proof that goons were vandalizing the car while she and her parents were on the way out. Just that alone would traumatize anyone when you are in a small enclosed space surrounded by an angry mob and you do not know if you are going to be dragged out and beaten to a pulp. Is this how a civilized society functions? It is also true that Indian media is sensationalist and piling on this. But as I said before, Bollywood is utter trash full of hollow people.

    Is this guy for real?

    I was laughing because of the sheer stupidity and constant reference to gaaand marana!!!
  24. Hero worshipping is one main reason this country is still backward about women's rights. Add to that most Indian men are pampered by their parents and grow up self entitled. Saala buddhha lambu lectured us in Pink about women empowerment, but when it comes time to preach in real life hides under a desk and says dramatic one liners to get cheers from his sycophants.
