A police force revealed today it has become Britain’s first to recognise misogyny as a hate crime.
Nottinghamshire Police is recording incidents such as street harassment, verbal abuse, unwanted physical approaches and taking photographs without consent within the hate crime definition.
It also includes using mobile phones to send unwanted messages, unwanted sexual advances and ‘unwanted or uninvited physical or verbal contact or engagement’, possibly including wolf whistling.
The force’s chief constable Sue Fish said: ‘I’m delighted that we are leading the way towards tackling misogyny in all its forms.
‘It’s a very important aspect of the overall hate crime work being conducted and one that will make Nottinghamshire a safer place for all women.
‘What women face, often on a daily basis, is absolutely unacceptable and can be extremely distressing. Nottinghamshire Police is committed to taking misogynistic hate crime seriously.’
Feminists want regret-sex — which includes voluntary sex that the female later regrets — classified as rape, and indeed the oft quoted alarmist rape figures are based on this definition. Women are already notorious for working hard to dress to attract male attention, but only attention from the men they want you understand — and now attention from the wrong men could be a hate crime. Almost by definition, an unsuccessful advance is now potentially a crime in Nottinghamshire, and laws such as the above will inevitably be applied too enthusiastically by some. Like with the marriage laws, the feminists will be puzzled when many men simply withdraw to other worlds.
American society has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are consciously and unconsciously going “on strike.” They are dropping out of college, leaving the workforce and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this “man-child” phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility simply because they can. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them?
As Men on Strike demonstrates, men aren’t dropping out because they are stuck in arrested development. They are instead acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands and providers. In addition, men are going on strike, either consciously or unconsciously, because they do not want to be injured by the myriad of laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century.
I think marriage and family are probably the best things you could possibly have in life. Having said that, why am I single and childless? Too risky. Divorce rate is too high. Households headed by married adults are now in the minority. The rate of increase in female perpetrated crime continues to skyrocket. Jobs are scarce. A large percentage of well educated women don’t want kids or want them late in life. There are fatherless kids all over the place. One slip up with a woman and your life could be ruined.
I’m one of the many `on strike’, which is wise considering the potential consequences and all that I might come up against in today’s legal and economic climate. I’m well educated, have a great career, my own home, yada…yada…yada. No way am I betting all that on the flip of a coin. I can’t even fathom how families with children handle divorce. Must be the most soul crushing thing in life for all involved. I consider what I’m doing to be identical to what women have done over the past 40+ years. I’m opting out of the traditional way of life.
This is an ‘early an age as they can handle it’ must read for all males. This book should be the start of a men’s studies course in college. Just imagine the talk after that school paper announcement! HA!
The other day, a friend of mine told me that his girlfriend dialed 911 during an argument. I was rendered speechless. A chill ran down my spine. It is painfully simple to ruin someone’s life with a phone call these days.
