Netizens React

The viral luchi tweet by Sandeep Chakraborty earned him a lot of criticism. One Twitter user writes, “Husband doesn’t have hands to make luchis?? The entitlement is nauseating,” while another adds, “Wives are not servant! Agar Luchi khaane ki itni talab hai then make it by yourself. Period.” Explaining the whole issue, a user named Jojo writes, “This is exactly the kind of ‘casual sexism’ that we need to come out of. We men need to wake up everyday and evolve, so that our children never use such sentences to describe a woman and her feelings towards anything. This is not appreciation but conditioning.”

Well, in spite of everything, at least people are speaking up about misconstruing exploitation as affection. All thanks to Luchi it seems!
