French men to face fines for wolf-whistling or lecherous behaviour under law out next year

Men who wolf whistle or are aggressively lecherous to women on French streets face fines under a new law against sexism and sexual abuse to be passed next year, the government has confirmed.

Gender equality minister Marlene Schiappa, 34, a feminist and writer, said workshops would be held across France to discuss the bill, as tens of thousands of French women took to Twitter to share experiences of harassment in the workplace.

Lock me up.

    Ole thunder thighs wants to imprison Frenchmen under the false guise of wolf whistling in the workplace – ? I would bet my last five dollars that it’s exclusively ‘new’ Frenchmen that are hanging out on the streets – aka new Scientists and Brain Surgeons.

    So, let’s see.
    We have women who hate men because they HAVE NEVER, and WILL NEVER, be whistled at protecting the women who get whistled at while denouncing sexism of all men but who ignore (for political reasons) the actual abusers which are immigrant men “of colour”.
    Na, screw ’em all!
    What will they do when their ethnicity goals have been reached and all lesbians are being “correctively raped” in the streets as a just punishment from Allah?
    They would still blame all men, and even try to give the impression that all their rapists are members of the toxic white male patriarchy.
    My advice is to stop inviting rapists into your country and demonize those that would protect you, while learning to handle yourself better.
    Learn some judgement and humility and realize that “slut” is never a good look for anyone that is not actually a slut.

    • Yes, Arabs/Muslims need to be expelled, if the aggression of French women is really to be stopped.

    I bet they don’t touch the Muslim men for doing this.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      You can bet on it.

    • Alain

      They don’t usually whistle but prefer more direct physical contact.

      As I said, “except for muslims.”

    • Watchman

      I really think the muslim men’s behaviour triggered these laws.

    I guess this now becomes illegal.

      I once got into a nasty debate on YouTube. She was a typical product
      of a liberal arts education. She maintained that Pepe LePew cartoons
      glorified rape. In one of my posts to her, I mentioned that there is a
      huge difference between rape and the art of seduction. I explained that
      before the Baby Boomers arrived, that men were real men in those days.
      I cited the fact that Carry Grant and Charles Boyer were true gentlemen.
      They held the car door open for their girlfiends and wives. They stood
      when a woman rose from the dinner table. No man of that generation
      would smoke in the presence of a woman without asking permission, etc.
      Then, some male metrosexual chimed in with the words “I don’t know
      who those people are, but…)” I then had to inform this clueless idiot
      about Carry Grant and Charles Boyer. The character of Pepe Le Pew
      was fashioned after Boyer even down to someone impersonating his voice.
      I scored a victory even if he was too stupid to comphrend my point!

    And now the French will go MGTOW…

      Holding the line against privileged grievance bunnies ,Meninists { opposite of femenists } are trying to prove that feminism is a based self-serving hate movement out to emasculate little Johnny and turn men into guys that sit to PEE ……… all the issues of the toilet seat being up or down is over & are now perpetually left down …..

    I would walk on my hands and knees on broken glass just to smell the
    car seat that Bridget Bardot sat on in this photo. Sadly, I lack a time
    machine but I would pay any fine for that chance! The French and the
    Italians are famous for this kind of behavior. It looks like the left is
    winning their war against western culture!

    Except for muslims.

    • Watchman

      I actually think these laws were brought in mainly to deal with the muslims who know no subtlety in the catcalls against women not wearing hijabs, niqabs, or burkas. They have no respect for the uncovered girls and women and consider them as nothing but prostitutes – nay, worse than prostitutes as they would not consider even offering them money yet still expecting these women to sexually service these men for free.

    So, if a woman walks past a man and he starts whistling the following, is that an indictable wolf whistle?

  • Millie_Woods

    And for good measure, they should pass a law against Germans invading.

    Horny French male skunks hardest hit.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Meanwhile many many many teachers are flat out quitting because of the physical violence and death threats they are subjected to by…..well you know who.

  • Blacksmith

    I would have whistled at that pic, but I got tongue tied.

  • Actually, this law is good. It is aimed not at “Frenchmen* but at Arabs/Muslims who constantly aggress young women (and older ones) in the streets and the metro, etc. These people need to be told to stop.
