Make catcalling a hate crime, Labour MP to urge parliament
The Guardian ^ | Tue 6 Mar 2018 | Jessica Elgot

Catcalling at women and sexist abuse in public should be made hate crimes, a Labour MP has said, calling for a pilot scheme in Nottinghamshire to be made law across the country.

Melanie Onn said wolf-whistling, harassment on public transport and taking photographs up women’s skirts were low-level crimes that often went unreported, and it was important for police to be able to record any increase.

She said she would argue in a parliamentary debate on Wednesday that a change in the law would give women the confidence to report misogynistic behaviour.

“Laws are instrumental in changing attitudes, setting the bar for expectations of treatment and behaviour,” she said. “Our laws are not stagnant. Our laws must reflect the reality of today’s society.

“As the nature of harassment and sex discrimination changes, so must the laws which govern it. If street harassment and continued sex discrimination has no place in our society, let us have laws which fully and properly reflect that.”

Rape of Kefirs/Dhimmis is perfectly acceptable though.

I’m glad I’m not young and single anymore.

It will soon be illegal for young men to make a move on chicks

But it’s ok with Europeans to allow Muslims to flood their countries and rape their women and children

Catcalling and wolf whistling cannot be adequately defined legally, so this will enable any women, or someone who is dressed as one, to accuse any man, or someone who is dressed as one, of a crime, and he will be arrested and jailed. And that is the intention.

Of course, none of this will apply to m*slims, who are allowed to rape and murder. They don’t bother with the catcalls or whistles. They go right into rape.

Why? Why why why are these assholes trying so hard to deny the problem is MUSLIMS? Try as they might, they will NEVER assimilate these freaking backwards, 7th century animals into ANY type of civilized society. They are not the same.

As they say in the south, some people just need killin’.

JC Whitney sells a wolf whistle for your vehicle, either electric or vacuum powered. Had one back in high school on my ‘52 Chevy pickup.

Only if the men are considered unattractive to the chicks.

It’s all a plot by homos - more young men will turn to wretched homos for their orgasms.
