eve teasing


When will this term be retired for good? Banished forever? It is a silly, mild euphemism for what is, plainly, sexual harassment of women. And, thanks to Bollywood's longstanding portrayal of heroes who chase their heroines till they capitulate (because, don't you know, behind every woman's loudly-declared no, there's a shy, unequivocal yes), many men in this country consider "eve-teasing" as necessary foreplay.
