For deflating trolls over women’s rights and consensual sex. The CPI(ML) pol­itburo member, an activist unafraid of battle scars, set off a lit­tle ­social media storm when she responded to an FB post which slammed her for having said on a TV channel that one can only pity people who fear ‘free sex’ bec­ause ‘un-free sex’ is nothing but rape. The trolls duly respo­nded with misogynist remarks like: “Ask your mother/daughter whether she had ­free-sex (sic).” Her res­ponse: “Er, yes, my mother did. Hopefully so did yours. Because if the woman is not free, it is not sex but rape.” ­But it was Kavita’s mother, Lakshmi Kri­shnan, who brought the house down with her words: “Of course I had free sex. I should jolly well hope so! As and when I wanted, with the person I wanted. I fight for every ­woman and man to have sex according to their consent. Never unfree, never forced.” Kavita reposted it with pride: “My mum’s kickass reply to trolls.”
