Yeah, so what do you think -- spicy foods or social inequality? I vaguely recall once doing something untoward on bean tacos, but I'm going to side with the rape victim on this one.
A local official raised eyebrows with his inflammatory explanation of what has caused a spike in rapes in Haryana, India. "To my understanding, consumption of fast food contributes to such incidents," said Jitender Chhatar, a khap panchayat (town council) leader. "Chowmein leads to hormonal imbalance evoking an urge to indulge in such acts...."
India Today reports that Chatar also blames burgers and pizzas for the rise in rapes. According to Chatar, if people adopt a simple lifestyle, the number of rapes will decline.
One rape victim in Haryana told First Post she believes social inequality plays a role in violence against women.
