Why Women Are Wearing Cow Masks For Protection

Why Women Are Wearing Cow Masks For Protection


WOMEN IN INDIA ARE USING COW
MASKS TO ILLUSTRATE HOW INDIAN LAWS FAVOR CAL PROTECTIONS OVER
THEIR FEMALE HUMAN CONSTITUENTS THAT YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THE
PICTURES OF WOMEN IN THESE COW MASKS HERE THERE’S A FEW OF THEM
AROUND THE COUNTRY IN DIFFERENT PLACES. OBVIOUSLY INDIA HAS SEEN A RISE
IN COW PROTECTION LAWS WITH LONG SENTENCES AND HARSH
PUNISHMENTS AND SUJA CHART GOSH WHO IS AN ARTIST FROM
KOLKATA INDIA SAID HE STARTED THIS PROJECT AND IT WAS INSPIRED
BY HIS OWN QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY THE SAME FEVERISH APPROACH
TO CODIFYING PROTECTIONS FOR COWS WAS EXTENDED TO WOMEN
IN THE COUNTRY. AND INDIA, HARMING A COW CAN
YIELD AS SWIFT AND HARSH PRISON SENTENCE OF NEARLY 10
YEARS OR EVEN INSPIRE VIGILANTE JUSTICE BUT SURVIVORS OR
VICTIMS OF WEIGHT RATE CAN WAIT MONTHS BEFORE THEY SEE RESULTS
FROM REPORTING THEIR ASSAULT. AND 2015, INDIA’S NATIONAL CRIME RECORDS
BUREAU REPORTED THAT THERE WERE AT LEAST 34,000 CASES OF RAPE
REPORTED ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IN FACT, CONVICTION FOR THESE
RAIDS AGAINST WOMEN IS ABOUT ONLY 21% AND THAT IS A
STATISTIC FROM 2014. SOME OF THESE LAWS PROTECTING
COWS COME FROM THE HINDU RELIGION AND WE OBVIOUSLY KNOW
AS WELL THAT THERE HAVE BEEN INCREASED RAPE ALLEGATIONS AND
INSTANCES OF RAPE OF WOMEN IN INDIA AND A LOT OF THE TIMES,
THE POLICE, WHEN WOMEN TALK WHETHER SEXUAL ASSAULT WON’T
REPORT THAT WOMEN ARE COMING IN OR BELIEVE THEM, SO OBVIOUSLY
THE NUMBER I MENTIONED BEFORE IS PROBABLY AN UNDERESTIMATE, BUT
ALSO THERE IS A HUGE STIGMA AROUND IN INDIA SO IT IS FURTHER
AND UNDERESTIMATE AND STILL, THESE COWS ARE BEING PROTECTED
MORE THAN WOMEN. IS A GREAT RHETORICAL
ARGUMENT, WELL EXECUTED BY THE INSTAGRAM ART THAT WE ARE
SEEING. IS LIKE YOU ARE PROTECTING A COW
MORE THAN YOU ARE PROTECTING ME. I’M NOT AGAINST ATTACKING COWS,
I AM ALL FOR PROTECTING WOMEN JUST AS MUCH AND
WHEN YOU SAY THAT IT IS UNDERREPORTED, IF NOT MORE. BUT IT IS UNREPORTED. REUTERS REPORTED THAT IN
METROPOLITAN AREAS LIKE DELHI, ACCORDING TO A SERVER
THEY DID, ONE IN 13 SEXUAL ASSAULTS IS REPORTED. AND SEXUAL HARASSMENT IS THE
THIRD MOST COMMON CRIME IN DELHI AND MUMBAI. QUICK VISIT BY COMPARISON, ONE
IN THREE PHONE ROBBERIES IS REPORTED AS OPPOSED TO ONE AND
13 SEXUAL ASSAULTS AND THAT AND MOM BY ITS ONE AND NINE ARE
REPORTED. BUT THEY HAVE TAKEN CERTAIN
STEPS IN INDIA. APPARENTLY THEY PASSED A LAW
SAYING THAT IN 2017 ALL PHONES HAVE TO HAVE A PANIC BUTTON AND
IN 2018, IT WILL HAVE TO BE LINKED TO GPS IN ORDER TO SHOW
PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE TAUGHT THERE TRYING TO PASS
DIFFERENT LAWS THAT MAKE COPS MORE ACCOUNTABLE WHEN WOMEN DO
REPORT THESE SEXUAL ASSAULTS, BUT THEY ARE STILL OBVIOUSLY IN
THE PROCESS OF IT BUT I LIKE HOW THIS ARTIST IS SORT OF DRAWING
ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT THERE IS THIS DISPARITY BETWEEN HOW
THE COUNTRY TREATS ITS CONSTITUENTS THAT IN THE PICTURES BY THE WAY,
THE ARTIST IS A GUY, BUT IT’S DIFFERENT WOMEN WEARING THE COW
HEADS A DOT IN THE BEGINNING I THOUGHT, THAT IS A CURIOUS
CONTRAST AND I GET IT, BUT I KINDA FELT BAD FOR PICKING ON
THE LAW AND HOW PROTECTION. I GUESS THE COWS SHOULD BE
PROTECTED I THOUGHT, BUT IT TURNS OUT I AM WRONG ABOUT THAT
BECAUSE THE MORE I READ INTO IT, THE MORE I REALIZED
THIS IS IN JUST THAT WE ARE HINDUS AND WE WANT TO PROTECT
COWS AND IS IN THAT LOVELY? IT IS ACTUALLY SOMETIMES
SELECTIVELY ENFORCED AGAINST MUSLIMS IN INDIA. AND THE POINT I ALWAYS MAKE
ABOUT RELIGION IS, YOU PRACTICE YOUR RELIGION, I DON’T. YOU SHOULD HAVE THE FREEDOM TO
PRACTICE IT, BUT YOU SHOULD NOT FORCE OTHER PEOPLE TO
PRACTICE YOUR RELIGION BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT IN IT. IF YOU ARE HINDU, GREAT. TONY COWS. LOVE THEM AND PET THEM AND DO
WHATEVER ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO DO WITH THEM AND ANIMALS ARE
INNOCENT. BUT IF MUSLIMS OR JEWS OR
CHRISTIANS WANT TO EAT DELICIOUS HAMBURGERS, LEAVE THEM
ALONE. THAT LAW BY ITSELF, EVEN THOUGH
IT SOUNDS GREAT, WASN’T THAT GOOD TO BEGIN WITH AND WHEN
YOU DO THE CONTRAST IN A COURSE THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT
OF THE ART. JESUS, GANESH, OR WHATEVER. WE’RE NOT EVEN PROTECTING
WOMEN AS MUCH AS WE ARE PROTECTING COWS THEN IT IS
PARTICULARLY TROUBLESOME. GREAT ART BECAUSE GREAT ART
MAKES YOU THINK AND IT HAS THE WHOLE COUNTRY THINKING.

  1. it's because India is an ass-backwards shithole. Sorry, that came out wrong.

    A dead donkey's rotten asshole.

  2. Ain't no one wearing that cow mask here in India … A dozen of cry babies like tyt are doing this non sense shit…
    Keep your yellow journalism to your country..,

  3. the clip is about India and the cow , but half of the comments are about black people ( and its all white dudes commenting )

  4. Why you guys even hired this cry baby feminist Hannah … all she does is going against people who are not feminist…
    and she does a lot of over action on useless topics…
    All the time she cries on someone
    Hannah you are the dumbest feminist I have ever seen

  5. So the first info graphic is saying that cows recieve swifter justice than surviros/victims of rape (which can also be men, although I'm not sure if India's laws say so). However, can you think of any reasons why? Perhaps this has to do with how both crimes are committed. Don't you think someone assaulting a cow in public would have a few more witnesses than say, a back-alley rape? Come on guys, think critically about this for just one minute.

  6. India is only being more American in the ways it treated rape victims,look at Cosby,Trump,and that cop who raped a girl,sad world.

  7. Idk about the last thing Cenk said. Yes, you practice your religion and I don't. But you could say the same thing about hurting women- we believe it's wrong but misogynists don't. So everyone should follow the law together- don't hurt cows and don't hurt women. I don't know, that's an underdeveloped version of an opinion, but maybe don't hurt cows regardless of your religion? They're innocent, gentle animals.

  8. 1000 years of genocide by the Muslims and you expect people to just sit and take it but every year we got a f**** hear about how bad the Jews had in World War II news flash Indians also died in World War II from starvation why because the British white man stole their food

  9. People are taking this the wrong way. The situation for women in India is not shitty because of the elevated respect for cows, the situation for women in India is shitty IN SPITE OF the elevated respect for cows and other animals. Look at other countries that have problems with the way women are treated. $10 says they treat animals way worse (and where their religion actually encourages animal sacrifice). Cow masks are just a unique way of exposing hypocrisy, so y'all can take your veiled racism off this video. Thanks!

  10. The comment section makes me weep for humanity. We are talking about 1000s of women being raped and their rapists getting away with it, most likely to do it again and no one seems to care. This isn't a feminist issue. It's an issue about the utter miscarriage of justice.

  11. >Story is about India
    >Thumbnail is a picture of a white woman in cow mask
    >video features white feminist Hannah Cranston
    >TYT supports whitewashing

  12. This is a result of female infanticide. There are 20 million extra men in India, also in China. I imagine Pakistan has an imbalance too. Expect more wars and more abuses against women, esp kidnappings.

  13. Imagine being part of the 1000 member alt-right Koch+Putin troll brigade that is perpetually triggered over the reporting of the facts

  14. Cows lives matter bitches!! Muslims love to abuse and rape women all the time. Shit on them and their idiotic religion tyt. Oh yeah, you can't because the Saudis are funding you.

  15. Maybe let's just not rape, abuse or murder any living being of any species? Let's introduce the same level of protection and retribution for women as there are for cows and call it a day.

  16. Hannah is no Ana. Nearly every story this girl stumbles through is about her perceived worldly injustices to women. Could be accidental, coincidental, or it could be she's simply a 1960s reincarnate obsessed with victim mentality. Whatever it is, I can rarely get any further than her initial flat affect and bumbling over words on paper. 😩

    (Regardless of my disdain, those cow heads would be like going to a latex convention in Las Vegas in August. The oppressive heat inside should produce a stench so permeable that rape wouldn't even be a passing thought of anyone near, so maybe they're onto something, just not what they think they're onto.) 🤔

  17. Stupids liberals see everything as wrong. Why is it they are making it a competition between woman and cows?
    India has enough laws to protect against rape. Its the mentality that needs to be changed.

  18. We also have our trump in Modi, who made his carrier as a propagandist for right wing Hindu org RSS, no surprise cow vigilantism and incidents of violence on minorities has increased under him.

  19. Same shit, different country. Here a fetus is starting to receive more protection than it's mother, the poor go to prison while the rich might pay a fine, and the government and media seem to care more about gun rights than the rights of people getting killed in mass shootings.

  20. Cenk! You're KILLING ME! In your talk you actually actually said, "Animals are innocent" and yet you didn't play the, "Animals are innocent" bit!

  21. All Hannah has to do is read a script and not look ridiculous. Her co-workers constantly have to jump in to rescue her from her constant verbal cul-de-sacs. She has a terminal case of Palinism from which listeners are suffering. Can't TYT find someone who can walk and chew gum at the same time? And what is with that catastrophe of a dress?

  22. Apparently the comment section is the meeting place for lonely teenage inadequates nowadays-kinda pathetic really

  23. Look, bigots! The woman is talking about "actual oppressed women in other countries"! Happy? (Looks at voting) Guess not!

  24. No one in India thinks Women do not need protection. To juxtapose cow slaughter with justice for women is willful distortion.
    1. What of the dog-meat ban in the US? Why do you like dogs so much? Truth is that the love for dogs lies in your Bible.
    2. Safety of Women is not just an Indian issue. It is world's issue. In india, muslim men can 'possess' upto 4 wives. Ever done reporting on that? That, is institutionalized crime and muslim men in india are not willing to give up that law in India's system.
    Hindus are soft targets for you because, we are introverts. The moment you meet a logical hindu, you will refuse to talk to him, afraid that he/she will break your belief system, honestly based on racism.

  25. worth mentioning cows are protected more than men also. It's more an Animals are protected by the government, but humans are free-for-all situation.

  26. "I hear you brother". Is this a gender neutral statement in America, like calling someone dude is in NZ? Or does Cenk actually think only men watch this channel?

  27. Only the Hindus want to protect the cows…. The Muslims and Christians want to kill and eat the cows.
    I'm betting those same Muslims and Christians do not want to kill and eat women…

  28. Imagine if women were treated like corporations? Or even, dare I say, militaries? Luckily white domination, through Judeo-Christian fascism, has decimated to role of women in humanity [through Eve]. Gotta keep all those lil Eves in check, less they lead us all to hell.

  29. Ok. Let me get this straight. I haven't seen more stupid anchor than this in recent times. When she doesn't have anything concrete to say, just throw in a stupid statement like obviously the number of rape instances have increases and bla bla. I would suggest her to go and do some research before blabbering gibberish about the state of women in India. No woman is protesting because apparently they have better things to do than to spend their day thinking about the art of some artist who just wanted to grab some eyeballs and therefore pulled off a stunt. And this news hasn't found any mention in Indian news channels because there is is no such burning issue regarding cow protection laws and women security laws but these foreign media networks are so quick to present this publicity stunt as the state of women in India. For your information, currently laws are greatly in favour of women so if anyone, men should protest but they are not. We know we need to improve the state of security of women and are working hard towards it but before pointing fingers and making absolute statements always have a perspective in mind regarding the state of women in your first world country. Keep pointing out faults but I suggest please do some research before making stupid statements like this anchor.

  31. To those Indians that dispute that only a minority of Indian publicly shit on roads/rail-tracks/garden lawns/public-parks here's something for you:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-17362837

    Excerpt from link: "Only 46.9% of the 246.6 million households have lavatories while 49.8% defecate in the open. The remaining 3.2% use public toilets."

    To Indians who like to brag about sending satellites to space I say what use is that when half of India is forced to shit on roads/rail-tracks/garden lawns because they don't have access to clean toilets?

  32. Great art many times is designed to force people to look at their contradictory values. This is of great discomfort to the conservative minds, Hindu conservatives included. Fortunately they can't do damn thing about it! I am glad to see these brave women focus on the issue of treatment of women versus the sacred cows of India.

  33. So according to this dolt, only Hindus are rapists and assaulters ? Last I checked, terror had no religion , but crime does , hmm.

  34. Way to paint entire country as anti women Young Turks ….but I get it. Western media want it's citizens to believe everywhere else except their own, it's hell.

  35. The conviction rate is probably low because a lot of allegations are false and there is no penalty for false allegations. Remember that this is the same country where groups of men beat up single guys for fear that they may be a rapists. They don't take abuse against women lightly there as far as I know.

  36. its not the whole INDIA , Its happening in north India and also in rural
    areas of india, where people are uneducated religious fanatics

  37. @TheYoungTurks thanks for covering this, you would be amazed how innocent people are killed in India daily in the name of Cow. It's the ruling BJP leaders had unleashed in horrible crimes on the Muslims and Dalits in the India.

  38. haahahah
    India is the largest exporter of cow
    do u think cow safe in India
    aahahahahahaha
    some anti-india bastards r created fake information
    so
    speak the truth

  39. After seeing this TYT video India is like "We should decrease cow protection" instead of giving more protection to women.

  40. Wow! Women can legally rape men, sexually harass us, domestically violate us, and you say women aren't treated well in India! What about us, we face much more social stigma if we come out and say we were raped! I never was, but some of my countrymen were!

  41. A nationalist government in our country is encouraging this propaganda and few gullible people, govt supported vigilantes supports.

  42. Indians especially Hindus r the biggest hypocrites on earth.. I myself am a Hindu but its a shame how these cow vigilantes are growing in this country, who show their (fake) respect for cows and on the other hand roam on roads harassing women.. India is the 3rd biggest exporter of beef in the world.. Nothing makes sense in this country these days!! Sad..

  43. Was Cenk here intentionally talking about stuff that has actually nothing to do with the story?

    Wasnt the first clip of the show I felt that way.
