Watch the next step to be "looking" at a woman to be hate speech.
Can we imagine the Police State stepping further in and controlling how you dress and where you go to combat "hate speech"?
The Metropolitan Police today revealed it is speaking with other UK forces to assess whether it is worth cracking down on gender-based hate crimes after a pilot scheme was launched in the East Midlands last year.I see the streets of London being filled with walking silence as Bobbies stand by to ensure you say nothing unless you be arrested for Hate Speech.
The trial, led by Nottinghamshire Police, saw sexist incidents like street harassment, verbal abuse and taking photos without consent recorded as hate crimes, carrying tougher penalties for offenders.
Police chiefs are now considering rolling out the idea elsewhere in the UK, suggesting a harsher stance on everyday sexism could stop it escalating into sexual harassment or assault.
