You Wouldn't Dare Beat These Women Lightly. Or at All.

You Wouldn’t Dare Beat These Women Lightly. Or at All.

When we hear the words lightly beat, what comes to mind? To most people it’s something along the lines of, “lightly beat eggs so that their volume will increase and the texture will go from liquid to thick and foamy and the color will be a light yellow.

However, the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) had something else in mind when they proposed a model women’s protection bill which permits husbands to lightly beat their wives if needed. I’m not much of a science guy, but I’m pretty damn sure that this won’t make their volume increase or make their texture go from liquid to thick and foamy. Might make them yellow, though, which sounds rather nasty.

How did the people react?

To no one’s surprise really, women and men everywhere reacted furiously to this, wondering what kind of weed the people there had smoked to come to the conclusion that lightly beating women would protect them in some way.

One of these people was a photographer by the name of Fahhad Rajper, who went to 12 different women and recorded their response in an album titled #TryBeatingMeLightly. These women’s comebacks are epically glorious.

#TryBeatingMeLightly - Beat me with your intelligence, if you may. Beat me with your wit. Beat me with your smile. Beat me with your kindness. But if you dare to beat me even with a feather, I'd really beat the shit out of you. With love. :)
