So many blithering idiots around today. Our thanks to Steve for this. Extracts:
French President Emmanuel Macron has spoken out against domestic violence, saying it shames France that a woman is killed every three days.
In a speech marking International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, he said the silence around the issue must be broken.
He has made gender equality one of the main themes of his five-year term in office. [J4MB: Does he want more women killed, up to the same number as men being killed? Or does he want fewer men killed, down to the same number as women being killed?]
During his election campaign last year, Mr Macron said that the issue of violence against women [J4MB emphasis] would be a priority for his presidency…
Other measures will include an app for victims of online stalking and “on demand” bus stops in the evening, where women [J4MB emphasis] can stop a bus anywhere at night so they can get home safely. [J4MB: Most victims of street violence are men, so it makes complete sense to restrict the stopping of buses anywhere at night to women only. Maybe men should self-identify as women for the purpose of stopping buses at night? They could hold up placards bearing the words, ‘Je suis une femme, arretez immediatement!!!’, as a bus approaches.]
