Man becomes first person convicted of sexism under new Belgian law
A man has been convicted of sexism in a public place for the first time under a new law in Belgium.

A court in Brussels fined him €3,000 for insulting a police officer because of her gender, Le Soir reported.

It comes as France prepares to create an offence of street harassment, described as “sexist and sexual outrage”.

PARIS — Cat-callers, wolf-whistlers and harassers of the world, beware.

Marlène Schiappa, France’s junior minister for gender equality, is on a mission to hunt you down, by making unwanted public advances to women a punishable offense.

In the midst of a growing backlash against harassers, Schiappa’s initiative aims to put France on the global vanguard of anti-harassment legislation, by defining a practice that’s rarely encoded in law.

It’s an ambitious, if thorny, undertaking that’s part of a wider push by President Emmanuel Macron and the 35-year-old former activist for working moms to combat violence against women not just in France, but across Europe.

Just another reason why Europe is going to sh*t. Free speech = gone. Thought crimes codified. Check.

Feminists around the world should be appalled by this.

I am starting to think that the Muslims might have it right. Women stay off of the streets, burqua, need permission to go places.

€3,000...

To put this in perspective, full-time employees receives a gross average salary of 3,300 euros per month. That's the same as a $2,500 fine in the US.
