Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

So he basically called her a whore, after she gave him a ticket or something?
And now hes faceing jail time?

WTF?

That punishment seems out of balance with the deed done.
Even being fined 3700$ for calling a police cop a whore.... is extreme (imo).

*edit:
Doesnt effect me, and I would never call a female officer such, but this is scary imo.
Sexism punished like this is too extreme.
I have a problem with the "punishment not fitting the crime"


Imagine in the USA all the people that swear "son of a whore" when you get a ticket, and then getting another ticket for (for like 3700$ USD), and then being thrown in jail for haveing sworn, and not paid the fine? its insane.

I guess I get better off when I steal 3000€ than what this guy did.

It'd be nice if there were transcripts of the interaction.



Hm, a law that punishes stupidity. I'm fine with that.

Seriously, just don't be a worthless idiot and you'll be fine.

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.

Whoa whoa whoa... did they just ASSUME someone's gender??? Add another €3,000 fine on top of that for the crime of gender assumption!  GUILTY!!!

No seriously... this is what feminists actually believe:

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

The fine for sexism can vary from €50 to €1000. So the majority of these €3000 is because of the other charges.



Convicted of sexism!? Is this what the world has come to?

Don't be an idiot and you will be fine. Be an idiot and you will be fined.

That... makes sense.

How do you know this? Are you the man who got convicted?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
