COMMENT POSTED TO A COLUMN BY LAURA BATES IN THE GUARDIAN

 

“…misogyny as a hate crime…”

After an unthinking statement like that, there can be nothing worth saying or reading.

Please, misogyny is a state of mind, not a crime.

And this kind of clumsy use of words runs the risk of making a society of laws either hopeless or ridiculous.

“Hate crime” in general is a concept right out of George Orwell.

If you can’t see that, you shouldn’t be writing.
