1984 - "Sexism" gets you a prison sentence

Bask in Your Thought Crime

(Independent)  -  A man has been convicted of sexism in a public place for the first time under a new law in Belgium.
A court in Brussels fined him €3,000 for insulting a police officer because of her gender, Le Soir reported.
It comes as France prepares to create an offence of street harassment, described as “sexist and sexual outrage”.
The Belgian case involved a driver who was stopped for breaking the highway code. The young man – who has not been identified – insulted the police officer because of her gender, the court heard.
He was reported to have said she would be better off doing a job “adapted to women”, in a scene witnessed by several other people. 
The driver was found guilty of three charges: contempt of a police officer, making threats and sexist remarks in public, and a serious violation of another person’s dignity because of her gender.
He was warned that if he failed to pay the fine, a prison term of a month would be imposed.
