Why Celebrities Such As Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone need to be careful with their views on Feminism

Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are probably two of the most popular names in Indian cinema. Actually scratch that they are probably among the two most popular Indian stars globally. I mean Deepika is set to do a Hollywood film with Vin Diesel. Priyanka already has a hit show and moderately successful album in the US. There is no denying the success of either woman. In fact, in a sense I idolize both of them for their hard work, charisma and talent. But what I don’t agree with, idolize or even accept are their populist views on feminism and men.

In an interview published recently, Priyanka Chopra opened about several things including her views on babies and infidelity. On Babies she said “I don’t need a guy for anything else except for children. I buy my own diamonds. I don’t need anyone else to buy them for me.” If you’re going WTF after that, read what she said she’d do if a man cheated on her “I will beat the shit out of him. I am very violent that way. There’s no scope for infidelity and I will not tolerate it.” Now guys if you have seen Priyanka in Mary Kom you’d know that this is in fact a scary statement. While the former Miss World quickly addressed the topic on Twitter with a tweet.

It still does little to underplay the fact that she shouldn’t have made this statement at all. She might not have meant to attack men, but it sure seemed that way. She is a national icon, a recent Padma shri winner, an idol for young women across the country. She is all these things and rightfully so, but given her position she has to be careful about what she says because her audience also has impressionable young women who may try to take inspiration from this. While people might say I am overreacting a bit, how can one line by a celebrity affect a whole nation’s notion on feminism? It’s not one opinion, that’s how it starts. It’s these everyday statements that men and women both make that overtime become stereotypes or values for society. Plus it’s not like Priyanka Chopra is the only celebrity who has gone too far in the name of ‘Feminism’.

Remember Deepika Padukone’s women empowerment video ‘My Choice’. It is actually quite the artistically made video and it really does have some nice views about how women have a right on what to wear and on body issues. However one statement stood out for anyone watching “It’s my choice to have sex before marriage, to have sex outside of marriage…” Pretty messed up right? The message that most people got from this video was that it’s ok from women to have sex outside of marriage. Everyone ignoring all the good things the video spoke off, because of one poorly chosen sentence. Of course like Priyanka, Deepika immediately came out with a statement, refuting the fact that she supports infidelity.

Both women didn’t mean harm, but as celebrities they have a duty to set an example. Gender relations in India are at a crossroads. While women empowerment is the need of the hour, this should be done at cost of putting down the male gender. Our celebrities have the power to make a real difference in getting us a step closer to gender equality, but as Uncle Ben once told Spiderman so rightly “With great power comes great responsibility”.






Funny video of men reacting to extreme feminist quotes

Feminism in India has picked up a lot of momentum in the last few years which could have been a good thing. Except unfortunately, with many women it has taken the wrong form, male bashing. Male bashing is basically sexism against men and blaming men for everything that is wrong from global warming to their cars breaking down. It does nothing for gender relations as it leads to constant discontent between the two. While I do believe feminism in its purest form is a good thing (it believes in equality of genders) I find it painful to deal with extremist feminists or Feminazis as they are called. Don’t hate on either gender! Jesting and making fun of each other is all good but both sides often take it too far.

While I doubt this mindset will change anytime soon, this video I stumbled upon shows some honest/funny reactions of men hearing some very strong anti-male quotes. Which will give you a good laugh. Hopefully women will see the funny side to this video too.

Are Indian penises big? How do Indian men size up against the world?

They say a dog is a man’s best friend but trust me when I tell you that’s not true. Man’s true best friend is his penis! From the day a man is born he is obsessed with it. But unfortunately a lot of men don’t trust in their penis, due to insecurities about size. These insecurities come from a number of places, talking to friends who lie about their size (We all have that bull shitter friend), google and of course good old porn. In fact according to a study conducted by Kings College of London, 30 percent of men reported dissatisfaction with their genitals. While these numbers are global, a quick search on Google trends showed me that a lot of Indians were indeed searching about penis sizes

Penis Snip

As you can see in the graph above the number of searches for penis were pretty consistent across 2015. Showing that this is truly something Indians are searching about. According to various studies conducted the average penis length across the world is 5.5 inches or about 13.9 centimeters. In fact those large penises you see in porn movies they only account for about 3% of the population. So yes porn has been lying to you all this time, not only about how well endowed you should be but also about how much pizza delivery guys get laid! So do Indian men have anything to be concerned about? Well I have good news and bad news in that regard.

The bad news first, the average Indian penis size is below the global average at 4 inches. Some other studies have put it in the range of 4.5 and 4.9 inches in length and around 4.3 inches in circumference. But anyway you cut it we are below the global average. The point is you probably aren’t going to be asked to be the lead in a porno anytime soon. However, before you decide to get depressed and curse everyone in your gene pool, there is some good news:

It doesn’t matter, penis size really doesn’t matter all that much! A new study suggests that 85% of heterosexual women are happy with their partner’s penis size. That is a pretty decent number, furthermore the study found that more than 40 percent of complaints about a partners’ penis size on Google searches was that it was too big, not too small. Big penises apparently are just good to look at and don’t make much of a difference in the sack.

So next time you are feeling anxious just remember that the old adage is true “It’s not the size that matters, it’s what you do with it”. Just remember why the lady is with you and not with any other man, it’s your personality, she didn’t start of seeing your penis anyway.

12 things you shouldn’t do on your first date

  1. Boast about yourself

I know your mom things you’re the most amazing thing to hit the earth since butter chicken but wait at least a few dates before boasting about it. She doesn’t need to know how much money you’re making or how much you bench, on the first date unless you want to come across as a self-centered jerk (You don’t want to..trust me)

  1. Be mean to the waiter

A girl judges your character by how you treat those below you. They really do, if you come across as an ass to the poor waiter who is earning minimum wage, then god knows what kind of man you might be. For all she knows you could be stealing candy from babies too! As the scene in Munnabhai 2 rightfully depicts guys who are rude to the waiter don’t get the girl.


  1. Forget to tip

While we’re talking about being nice waiters or any other support staff, we should probably remind you to leave a tip. You’re probably thinking “I just spent a fortune on this meal, why the hell should I tip the damn guy.” But suck it up, unless you want to look like the most ‘kanjoos’ AKA ‘cheap’ guy. Just so you know this includes times when they charge you service tax too!


  1. Talk about your ex

No! Just no! Do not under any circumstances feel the need to rehash the heartbreaking tale of your previous love, the romantic dates, the sensuous sex, the filmy breakup. She doesn’t need to nor does she want to hear it. Even if she brings up exes, avoid details. If you play your cards right, there will be time for that later.


  1. Get drunk

First dates can be nerve racking and alcohol is a great source of courage. So you might assume “Hey, maybe if I am drunk I’ll be able to speak to her” That would make a lot of sense, except booze is also a great source of stupidity! And no one likes stupid on the first date.

  1. Be sexist

Under no circumstance and we mean that, ever make a sexist remark on the first date. Sexist jokes can be hurtful to women. While you might not mean it literally and are just having fun, she might not realize it. It’s the 21st century buddy, treat her like an equal and don’t make fun of her parking.


  1. Bitch about her friends

Her friend Radha is a bitch, you know that, she knows that and we’re sure the whole world knows it. Nonetheless, you can’t say it to her. Only she gets to bitch about her friends, you just need to seem interested in her bitching. Control the urge to vent about her friends, till a few dates later when she likes you enough to not care.


  1. Lie

We all tell a few lies in our dating lives, but when you’re on the first date try to keep them to a minimum. Because if you expect to see that girl going forward, those lies will probably catch up to you. Also, as I have said before she isn’t dumb and she won’t believe “My BMW has gone for service, so I came in my WagonR instead”. Even a small lie if caught could make you untrustworthy in her eyes.


  1. Reach late

They say “It’s rude to keep a lady waiting” and they are completely correct. When you show up late it shows her two things. Firstly, you don’t care enough to be there on time and secondly, you aren’t dependable. Kid, women like their men dependable.

  1. Open yourself up… too much

Tell her about your life but keep something for later. Women appreciate a little bit of mystery. She might even find it weird that you’re sharing so much because dude she is practically still a stranger at this point. Don’t freak her out, with your autobiography.

11. Look at your phone
The urge to check the score or check that email will have to wait till after the date. Everyone likes attention and your date won’t be any different in that respect. She is going to expect to be the center of attention on your date. Don’t be an ass, if you can’t wait to check your phone, at least excuse yourself to the bathroom and do it.

12. Try to get in her pants
Scoring on the first date, in India that’s about as common as clean air in Delhi. Unless you are sure and she has literally spelled it out, avoid the urge to make the move, be a gentlemen escort her home and be on your way. Good things come to those who wait.


Avoid these mistakes and you might just get a second date.

How to create an awesome Tinder profile

Lonely on a Friday night? That’s fine because love might just be a few clicks away! For the uninitiated Tinder is a Geo based dating app, that uses a unique algorithm to put a number of members of the opposite sex as options in front of you, giving you the option to either choose to want to talk to a person (By swiping Right) or choose not to talk to them (By swiping Left). For two people to match both have to swipe right. While internationally it’s being used as a hook up app. In India it has taken on the form of a dating app.
Now that we have the basics down, let’s discuss how to build a good profile. Why you ask? Now I know you think you’re the second coming of Salman Khan and any girl would be lucky to match with you. The problem is so do all the other guys! So how do you stand out among thousands of guys, when you have just a first seconds to make an impression?

Follow these simple tried and tested methods to increase your chances of getting a match by optimizing your profile:
A) Profile photo (First photo): According to a study by OKCupid, women respond to five key elements:
Women respond to five key elements in men’s photos on dating apps/sites:

1. Mystery (looking away from camera)

2. Prosocial behavior (Seem to be doing something socially positive, like helping a child)

3. Preoccupation with something else (Don’t seem to be posing, a photo of you doing something)

4. Preselection by other women (Photos with other women)

5. Hotness (facial hair, hairstyle, clothes, posture, physique, etc.)
Furthermore, remember a few more things for your picture. Ensure that your image is not out of focus, no one likes a blurry image. Don’t let your first image be a group photo! If she can’t figure out who you are, she can’t be attracted to you. Lastly Suits attract women, Barney Stinson knew his shit.

B) The rest of your images + Instagram: Tinder gives you 5 images, MAKE USE OF ALL OF THEM. It adds credibility even if they aren’t great pictures, it proves that you aren’t some kind of weirdo or that you aren’t a fake profile. To further make yourself look legit connect your Instagram account, trust me it will help you significantly. The major fear for women on Tinder is that you are going to be a creep so adding credibility is very important.

C) Your Bio: I can’t emphasis enough the importance of a good bio. It’s the difference between a girl thinking you’re Mika Singh and her thinking you’re Shah Rukh Khan. On Tinder you are trying to ‘market’ yourself, it’s as simple as that and as with the current trend in the marketing world- Content is King. That means that you have 500 words to mold a women’s perspective of you. To get the best out of it, try the following:

1. Be honest: Don’t lie about being a millionaire or having a penis the size of a cricket bat, women aren’t dumb, they might act that way sometime but they aren’t. So just be yourself.
2. Be Funny: I’m not a very good looking man, in fact the only woman who has accused me of being one is my mother, because she kind of has to but I do have about 96 Tinder matches as of writing this article. That’s a pretty decent number, they key is to make a girl laugh with your bio. If she is laughing she will definitely want to talk to you. As the old Hindi dialogue goes “Hasse to Phasse”.
3. Have a call to action: To refer once again to content marketing, if you want girls to swipe right you’re going to have to explain why they should. A line in the end simply saying something like “Swipe right for man who will make cook you the dinner of a lifetime” can make a huge difference psychologically.

Get these elements right and you stand a good chance of talking to a lot of ladies on Tinder. So stop wasting your time reading this article (just kidding, please come back again) and start swiping till your thumbs are sore!

Why Eating before going out for a drink is a good idea

Ever gone out for drinks with friends and landed up eating butter chicken at a dhaba at 1 am after scuffing down a few Old monks and drunk dialing your ex-girlfriend? Considering that according to a study by WHO in 2014, the average Indian male drinker over 15-years-old consumes 33 litres of alcohol a year. I can safely say most of us have been there.

As you have probably figured out, eating late at night after drinking isn’t exactly the most practical choice, For one there are very limited places open, you’re too drunk to enjoy the food and according to science it doesn’t help sober you up! That’s right, science has debunked one of those lies everyone tells their friends after a night out. “Bhai kuch kahan le, uttar jayege”.



Eating after a drink is a little too late as the alcohol has already entered your bloodstream, so is there no way food can help you from getting completely and utterly wasted? Well no and yes, you see eating before a meal can be very helpful, infact if you notice that’s what people in Europe do, they eat dinner at like 6 or 7 in the evening (Weird, I know) then proceed to go out drinking. The benefit this gives is that the alcohol lines the stomach and gets you drunk slower. Slower is the keyword here, because if you drink enough no amount of lining your stomach is going to sober you up.

So why haven’t we been doing this for years?! Well I have no idea, honestly I didn’t know this till I started researching for this article. But tomorrow is a fresh day, a fresh chance to get drunk and fresh chance to do it responsibly by eating beforehand.
