Twinkle Khanna reacts on TVF row and it makes some real sense

Twinkle Khanna aka Mrs. Funnybones doesn’t believe in mincing words. While we love her take on anything and everything under the sky, her recent reaction on the infamous TVF molestation row was absolutely spot on too.Referring to molesters at the workplace as ‘loathsome frogs’ and the victims as the ‘little file-toting flies,’ Twinkle Khanna spoke about how it is not cool to judge somebody by their gender and simply ignoring all the efforts she has put in and struggles she has faced, to get wherever she is. In a column of Times of India, Twinkle Khanna took a dig at all those who have been accused of molestation at the workplace, including the recent case of Arunabh Kumar of The Viral Fever (TVF). Just like many of us, even she has a problem with why a man calling someone ‘sexy’ at the workplace is all okay and should be taken as a compliment. Arunabh has been quoted by a leading daily saying, “I am a heterosexual single man and when I find a woman sexy, I tell her she is sexy. I compliment women, is that wrong?” to which Twinkle very aptly replied, “‘Sexy’ is an acceptable compliment within a work environment only if she is a stripper and you are her pimp trying to boost her confidence before she takes the stage.” She also revealed in the post that even she has faced sexual harassment at work despite being a celebrity and wife to the action hero Akshay Kumar. She wrote, “A few years ago, a message on my phone reduced me to tears in the car. I had reached the breaking point after months of suggestive messages from a wealthy, powerful client that I had been pretending not to understand because all I wanted to do was to complete the project in a professional manner. And so I ended up as a statistic — the 38% of women who faced sexual harassment at work, according to a survey done by the Indian National Bar association. I am a fairly assertive woman, and married to a man who onscreen punches holes in walls with his bare fists and yet I haven’t been spared, so I shudder to think about what happens to the vast majority of working women.”
