I'm shocked by Nobel Laureate Abhijeet Banerjee's this article on #rape! He thinks men rape because they do not get enough sex! And that child marriage is how village patriarchs try to prevent rape! I'm very worried about his gender empowerment projects!
A thread

2/This article is #AbhijitBanerjee's explanation for the Delhi bus gang rape and an increase in such rapes. Do we assume that if poor men were each given 3-4 room houses where each person has private space to have sex then he won't rape? Do rich men not rape/gang rape?
3/ In all his work with the underprivileged, did #AbhijitBanerjee learn nothing about the sexual mores of various tribal communities in India which are far more open than educated urbans and allow for sexual freedom & choice for men & women (w/out owing homes or having privacy)?
4/ If child marriage is how khap panchayats attempt to prevent men from raping, wonder how Abhijit Banerjee explains khaps ordering gang rapes? 🤔
5/ So if as per #AbhijitBanerjee poor men gang rape because they resent the privacy & privelege of sexual freedom of the upper class, then why do the urban educated men gang rape?
6/ And finally -- shame on every single person defending #AbhijitBanerjee's this article on rape. Shame on him! Shame on you for defending a sexist, classist, misogynist!!
