It May Soon Be Illegal to Comment on Women’s Appearance in Public in France

Like fake news hysteria, sexual harassment hysteria has been exploited to justify still more outlandish restrictions on free speech in France:

Men will face fines of up to £80 [$114, €93] if they comment on a woman’s body or appearance in public.

Assuming the bill makes it through Parliament,

An £80 fine will be issued to anyone who behaves in a manner which ‘infringes the freedom of movement of women in public spaces and undermines self-esteem and the right to security’.

When speech that “undermines self-esteem” is illegal, you are kidding yourself to imagine you live in a free country.

It is the brainchild of France’s Secretary of State for Equality Marlene Schiappa, who lobbied for what she described as the everyday sexism in France to be addressed.

Secretary of State for Equality. That’s where the French Revolution went wrong. Liberté, égalité, fraternité. If they had stopped at liberté and just focused on that, they may have been able to secure it.

    Ah, progressives– it’s not Fascism when they do it or something…

    For decades, France has been the capital of free sex of the world. And now this????

    Much easier than confronting the jihadist migrants who’re over-running France and destroying its way of life…

    I don’t know about this, France. You might have to arrest a muslim or two. You sure you want to do that? Or does this law only apply to civilized western males?

  5. docwatson55 says:

    Of course, since all the women will be wearing burkas before long, there won’t be much to comment on anyway.

  6. JackisBack says:

    So I guess going bra-less in a white t-shirt will be against the law too? Those poor worshippers of Mao and Castro and Che.

  7. Grumpy Cat says:

    And if a Jihadist invader says for example: “you filthy Christian whore!” What will the fine be? An increase in welfare benefits?

    The article framed it right. This isn’t about a few hurt feelings. This is about getting people used to increasing speech laws. I don’t know if Europeans will continue to tolerate this. In the USA we cannot. Must not. CA and NY City already have essentially criminalized speech, though in very small and limited ways so far. Censorship laws are one of the clearest possible signs of the impending fall of a formerly free society.

    It’s almost time for the free people of the world to take back our planet from those a$$hats that deem to *rule* over us with an iron fist. We must NOT let this continue. I am and have been ready for revolution since 2016. The tree of liberty is VERY dry.

    Rapefugees don’t bother to make comments, they just do what they do.

    How do you say….”nice hooters” in french.

    We’re living in a marvelous age, gents. As western civilization circles the drain, we can expect the pendulum to swing back in the other direction pretty quick. In a couple years, we’ll witness a resurgence of wet t-shirt contests. There’s going to be T & A everywhere. It’s a wonderful time to be alive.
