A remark on pre-marital sex and virginity by South Indian actress Khushboo has set off a major controversy. Now, the issue seems to have taken political colors with a Dalit party tacitly backing protests against her.
Ok...this is where it gets dirty.
What was a simple social issue, is now storming into a political issue.
Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu, N Ram said that whether or not one agreed with Khushboo, 'the intelligent and experienced actress' 'forward-looking' views needed to be respected.
For everyone's sake, 'forward-looking' is not about losing virginity before marriage. It's about how to develop the one earth and world we have and make it a better place to live.
How tough is it to get that into the head?
The beleagured actress has virtually been left to fend for herself by the South Indian Film Artistes Association (SIFAA).
Since almost all the film artists are in one political party or the other, or having their own party, eh...you can understand that they are just trying to save their own ass.
I feel sorry for Kushboo. Once a social issue becomes a political issue...eh...you are pretty much f**ked up.
