The Indian media's continuing use of the euphemism eve teasing when addressing instances of sexual harassment has to end. An Oxford English Dictionary definition for Tease is To tempt someone intimately with no purpose of gratifying the desire aroused. Both parts of the term put the blame on the lady, she's the temptress who'sn't supplying something she's promised. The man is so fully within his right to take it intentionally, or at least, his actions or responses are understandable. In case the Indian media makes light of sexual harassment through the use of an euphemism, Indian popular film supports such behaviour.
The depiction of sex in Bollywood has for ages been euphemistic. The pair kisses behind a tree, connected legs indicate sexual activity, a rape is denoted by a flock of noisy birds disturbed from their peace and rising into the heavens. Young ladies - dressed up in garments far out from the social norm - throwing breasts and hips at teenage boys can be duplicated using dance scenes in Bollywood and Tollywood pictures. Virtually every picture has a song wherein the young guy pulls the dupatta of the small woman, and though she fakes to get angry, it is suggested that in secret she loves the attention.
Worse however is the continued depiction of the rape victim as fallen, devastated, despairing and isolated. She's only two options - either she married the guy who raped her or she commits suicide - both to prevent further shame on her family. One day we might hear a rape victim called an unwilling sperm recipient. Whilst the use of euphemisms can be acceptable in some situations like a private discussion or artistic representation, it may be obstructive and destructive in the public discussion of the significant problem where the objective is to bring about change.
