British Police Tackle Misogyny as a Hate Crime

What exactly is a hate crime? Whatever the moonbats in charge say it is. In some jurisdictions, misogyny is now regarded as a hate crime:

The police force in Nottinghamshire, East Midlands, will become the first in the U.K. to record misogyny as a hate crime in an effort to tackle the increasing number of incidents in the county.

Misogynist hate crime is defined by the force as: “Incidents against women that are motivated by an attitude of a man towards a woman and includes behaviour targeted towards a woman by men simply because they are a woman.”

The new category will include everything from verbal comments and wolf whistling to unwanted physical approaches. The use of mobile devices to send uninvited messages or take photographs without consent will also warrant police attention.

Hate crimes may be so subtle that you would have no idea you had committed them until you had been apprehended by the authorities. Some feminists consider it sexist to hold a door open for a woman. Is chivalry a hate crime? Try it in Nottinghamshire and find out.

“What women face, often on a daily basis, is absolutely unacceptable and can be extremely distressing,” said Chief Constable Sue Fish. “Nottinghamshire Police is committed to taking misogynistic hate crime seriously and encourages anyone who is affected by it to contact us without hesitation.”

What makes the concept of “hate crime” (i.e., thought crime) so useful is that it potentially elevates any manifestation of political incorrectness into a matter for the police.

Fish is committed to taking moonbattery seriously.
