31 Times Bollywood Lyrics Disguised Bullying, Harassment, And Threats As "Love"

"Haseena maan jaayegi" is a pretty fucked up world view, y'all.

Posted on

We all know Bollywood writers haven't done a great job understanding "consent".

At ALL.

On the contrary, plot lines have repeatedly enforced this: dudes should do whatever they have to do to get the girl, even if that means ignoring her "no" over and over again, following her when she's made it clear that she wants to be left alone, and using force and trickery to get physically intimate with her.

Anyone who's seen a '90s Bollywood flick will recognise the HORRIFYING visual of a large group of dudes chasing a lone woman who doesn't want to be chased... And pretending it's out of "love".

The worst part? It always works.

In the real world, these approaches will get you a slap and a trip to the cop station before they get you a girlfriend.

Here's a small sampling of lyrics that were WILDLY off-the-mark about the basic concept that when anyone says "no" to a sexual advance, you'd better fuckin' listen.
