stalking culture

Hello everyone!

We all have experienced at least once,if not more,the horridness of eve-teasing an dstalking.I fail to understand the pleasure or satisfaction derived out of it. What do they get from making someone feel uncomfortable? It is not always about one gender but every one in general.Why do people do this? Do they not realize how much fear can get developed inside the victim out of their mere fun? We witness cases of children coming up and narrating instances of stalking.Isn't it a little too dangerous from societal point of view,specially when the person stalking has been rejected,already?

    Hope you doing good. Your concern is completely relevant. Stalking is something which creates the feeling of anxiety and fear in the person who is been stalked. Stalking of any manner is completely wrong and unacceptable. It's sad that the number of stalkers are increasing and we can't do anything about it. There are so many young girls who think twice before getting out of their houses because of the fear of being stalked. This is very shameful and have to be stopped. The reason behind can be many but the prominent one lies in the upbringing and surrounding of the stalker. Males who are surrounded by people who are stalkers and don't respect women, have big egos and are over confident about the masculanity. For them rejection from girls are unacceptable or they think the girl which they like will be their, they just have to follow her. these things affects the lives of girls very drastically and affect their mental health.

    There should be more police protection and laws should be made more strict. Boys should learn to respect each woman and it have to start from their homes.

    Hope this will help.

    hi there. 

    Yes, I feel like almost everyone has at least once been a victim of the Eve teasing and stalking. What's new is that the stalking has become enhanced because of the social media spectrum. And even though so many people know about it, only a handful really do something about it. And that really sucks. 

    But everything has a back story. A stalker might have his or her reasons to even conduct the stalking. Stalking suggest that the person is obsessed with you. This might be a result of OCD, which might have been a result of some sort of childhood horror. Maybe he was brought up in a bad neighborhood where these things happened on a regular basis. Maybe the people he grew up with did this. Maybe his older brothers, fathers and uncles must have done this. But it is definitely stemmed from somewhere. Of course it still doesn't justify the act. And nor should it be entertained, but maybe this is a way of calming their minds for them. 

    Another reason could be simple male ego. I for one have notice that some men, can't stand the fact that they have got rejected by a woman. To them women are less superior to them, and they have no right to hurt their feelings. This just calls for further staking because they know it makes women uncomfortable. And that's their only objective in life hence causing an obsession to make them uncomfortable. 

    So there you go, potential reasons to why some people stalk even though it is looked down upon. 

    Hope this helps!
