Wolf-whistling and ‘sexist remarks’ could soon be illegal throughout the EU under the latest anti-male European convention – signed on International Women’s Day.
In a special event to mark International Women’s Day, David Cameron will pledge to fight verbal and non-verbal violence against women, including sexual harassment.
By signing the Council of Europe convention, he will vow to take “necessary legislative measures” against anyone breaking the clauses within, by committing “verbal, non-verbal or physical” sexual harassment.
This is thought to include sexist comments and street harassment, including shouting or whistling at women in public.
In particular, the convention sets out a definition of sexual harassment, as “violating the dignity of a person, in particular when creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.”
This, it says, is “subject to criminal or other legal sanction”.
This is how politics works in the eUSSR. One day, we wake up, and without discussion or debate, our leaders announce the most absurd laws that, actually or potentially, criminalise the entire male population of Europe. Another new and vaguely worded EU convention has been signed into law.
Can you imagine, for example, how Rebecca Watson’s Elevatorgate incident might potentially be covered under these new laws? In future, when you approach a woman in Europe and ask her for a coffee, if she happens to think you’re a beta male piece of disposable shit that is beneath her, then she could have you arrested for invading her dignity and creating an ‘intimidating environment’. In future, if you stop and turn your head at the slut with the see-through leggings and her boobs hanging out, it might not be enough for her to look back at you like you’re a perverted piece of filth – she could have you caged as a sex offender.
And even if the odd European country were to be brave enough to refuse to sign up to such stupidity – which never happens these days – there would still be no escape. The state now owns you, and it doesn’t matter where you commit these ‘crimes’. It was also announced today that British men who commit any ‘abuse’ against women in another EU state, can be arrested and tried in the UK if it is not possible in the country where it took place (i.e. it’s not illegal there). This ‘when in Rome, don’t do as the Romans do or you’ll end up in a British jail back home’ rule had already been introduced by the previous British government for cases of ‘paedophilia’. So, for example, even though the age of consent is 13 in Spain, you could still go to jail in the UK if you were spotted by a holidaying British police officer kissing a 15 year old senorita on the lips.
Those who rape or “seriously harm” women will be prosecuted in this country if charges are not brought abroad under the “unprecedented” agreement.
The new procedures would also cover offences such as forced marriage, female genital mutilation, and forced abortions which may not be illegal abroad.
Last night, Mr Cameron also said that stalking would be made a criminal offence. “Stalking is an abhorrent crime,” the Prime Minister said. “It makes life a living hell for victims. That is why we are explicitly criminalising stalking to make sure that justice is done.”
Currently, only murder and paedophile offences committed abroad can be prosecuted in British courts. In a joint statement to mark International Women’s Day, the Prime Minister and his deputy said they were acting to tackle the “utter scandal” of violence and domestic abuse suffered by millions of women.
One of the great Scottish philosopher David Hume’s central arguments against political anarchy was that, if you didn’t like the laws of your own country, you could simply go and bugger off somewhere with rules more to your taste. Unfortunately, in the civilised Britain of the 18th century, it must have been impossible for Hume to imagine that 300 years later, every man would have become the mere possession of the Big Sister fascist state to which he happened to be born.
