    Precisely the point , @shanvy . I argued the same with some people and one person just ridiculed me as if I am not even worth and I am against women empowerment.The video is so silly gone tooo far.
    I do not find anything empowering in this video . When a man is involved in EMA we make such a hue and cry about it but when it comes to women we say "My Choice".What a hypocrisy.If we say "My Choice" for such things and potray it as women empowerment , I am sure it will become a big joke and mockery.

    Just wondering If every thing is her choice, isn't the decision to get married and be faithful to her husband, also her choice? How does sex outside of marriage figure here? Is she advocating open marriage?

    And sex in office? Heights of unprofessionalism. How is that any one's choice?

    Not to forget the incessant chant of "My choice My choice....", sounded so irritating. Would she actually dare to make all these choices in her personal life, if she was a common woman?

    Boring at best. Does nothing to promote gender equality.

    I don't know if i am misinterpreting - She is talking about the Choices not Right or wrong. Yes, EMA, sex in the office are wrong but she choose to do so... May be this video should have been called #nojudging rather than empowerment. IMO

    No judgement would be a better way of putting it. But, in situations where one indulges in EMA, or office sex, there are bound to be judgements. Because the behavior is wrong, and not based on gender.

    People are taking this 'My Choice' tag into use to make jokes out of it. There was one joke on Facebook, that a customer asks panipoori wala one more round of panipoori. But the panipoori wala simply refuses it stating I don't want to give you another round it's 'My Choice'. It's kind of funny, but what if people really start taking this my choice to their advantage. Then?. We'll have to accept everything that comes with it.

    Im not so sure, that this is the case. Infact, if a woman is involved in EMA a bigger hue and cry is made. Men tend to get away with more than an average woman.
    My apologies for digressing from the thread, but couldnt accept this particular viewpoint.

    Watched the video and liked it. Women (and men) should have the freedom to marry or not marry, marry a man or a woman, having sex or not. That women come in all sizes, they have the freedom to wear what they want.

    Well she doesnt say if it is right or wrong. But the whole content is like addressing to the male community. So if men say the same thing, Why do women cry if men go according to their choices??

    As such men (some men) have always been acting according to their choices, thus making women in the family cry. Now if you want to stop this, shouldn't they give a reasonable solution? Instead of just saying 'Tit for Tat' ?This will never work. It will in fact be easier for men to approach women for anything, because now, no women wants to be judged(As per her video).

    The 'My Choice ' thing is such a bad influence. If they end up getting in trouble , the world or even the parents will walk away saying it was 'Your Choice'. Not just for women, it is absurd to think that life goes only according to individual choices.
