Telling your buddy that he screams like a girl could wind up hitting your wallet, if you happen to say it at the base of the Eiffel Tower.
According to this, French President Emmanuel Macron is now vowing to criminalize “gender-based insults” as a way to curb “violence and sexual abuse” against women. Because apparently, saying a butch woman “walks like a man” is tantamount to rape.
Here it is, straight from France24:
"Let's seal a pact of equality between men and women," Macron said in a speech marking the International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women.
About violence and sexual abuse, he said: "It is essential that shame changes camp."
"Gender-based insults will be punishable by law. Offenders will face a deterrent fine," he added.
With the ever-growing plethora of laws against “gendered” speech in Western culture, it’s a wonder we aren’t all walking around with duct tape over our mouths to keep from offending someone. New York City has already imposed a $250,000 fine for businesses that willfully use the wrong pronoun to address someone – because God forbid you don’t bow to the liberal agenda by maintaining that a person’s either a guy or a girl, period. The city's also changed its subway policy, barring conductors from using the gendered terms "ladies and gentlemen." California is looking to impose a fine and potential jail time for nursing home facilities that don’t recognize an elderly resident’s preferred gender. A teacher in the U.K. said he was suspended for accidentally using the wrong pronoun for a transgendered student.
If you call someone the wrong gender pronoun in Canada, you could wind up in jail, fined, and/or forced to attend the government’s “anti-bias training.”
Now, if you tell your French son to stop throwing the baseball like a chick, you could end up behind bars. Because of all the horrific evils in the world, “gender-based” words should absolutely be a top priority.
