I don’t understand why someone should be “like a brother” or “like a sister”! Especially when it means that we’re not what you are thinking we are and hence, you can say we’re like siblings!
I mean I do believe that you can have brotherly / sisterly feelings for people but calling every relationship that is not “love interest” a brotherly/sisterly relationship is way too much, don’t you think?
Why can someone not be friends? Why these stupid aliases?
Is it to make people with suspicious eyes back-off? Why are we feeding the already prominent social belief that a girl and a boy cannot be friends?
I used to do that too! But I stopped once I understood what I was doing! Just because someone is close friends with opposite gender, does not mean they are sleeping with each other! And most certainly, it does not mean that they should call each other brother sister!
I rebuke this aliases and starting today, I’m never going to call anyone “like my brother”. Its friends people. Wake up. Don’t make our society more backward than it already is.
A girl and a boy CAN be friends. And all Indians need not be my brothers or sisters. Thanks, but no thanks!!
