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.
