Filter only coffee

Most people will relate to this blog when I say people want to regulate opinions. A long time ago, I received a call one fine morning from a family friend. He asked me about a picture I posted with my friend (male). I remember I was running late for the office and kept explaining that picture. It wasn’t an inappropriate picture. I was furious at this man questioning my social media posts. He mentioned he would convince my parents if I liked the guy. Dude, he is just a friend who happens to be good-looking. It doesn’t mean he fits my soulmate criteria. I discussed this incident with my parents, and of course, they were angry too. That incident was one of the incidents when someone tried to regulate my posts on social media. There have been various incidents when people asked me to be politically correct on social media. Reasons would be numerous – prospective guy’s family would read your posts, see so many pictures with male friends, you have fewer female friends, you cannot sound feminist. I left posting my outrage on social media. It is sad that we call our nation democratic but our freedom of speech is compromised every minute. If pictures got people married, then Salman Khan would be married by now. If pictures showed love, Sushant Singh Rajput would be alive. If pictures decide our fate, Farhan Akhtar wouldn’t divorce Adhuna.
We are hypocrites and it is high time we should accept the fact. People don’t post their lives on social media. People don’t talk about harassment in the family, sexual abuse inside the family circle, abusive parents, marital rape, and many other issues. Women who aren’t afraid of speaking their minds, also have a traumatic history. So, can we once stop judging people? Stop controlling everyone. Stop regulating how women should behave. It’s enough number of days that I have behaved myself. I guess, you should always filter your coffee than opinions.
