Nottinghamshire Police records misogyny as a hate crime

Our thanks to Jeff and Martin for this. We can be sure huge numbers of grievance collectors – i.e. feminists – will be wasting a great deal of valuable police time that could be spent investigating real crimes. We think it’s safe to say Nottinghamshire Police won’t be recording misandry as a hate crime.

An extract:

Chief Constable Sue Fish claimed it will make the county a safer place for women.

“What women face, often on a daily basis, is absolutely unacceptable and can be extremely distressing,” she said.

“Nottinghamshire Police is committed to taking misogynistic hate crime seriously and encourages anyone who is affected by it to contact us without hesitation.”

Work on the idea first started with the Nottinghamshire Safer for Women Conference last year, co-hosted by the police with the Nottingham Women’s Centre.

Another:

Melanie Jeffs, centre manager at Nottingham Women’s Centre, said: “We’re pleased to see Nottinghamshire Police recognise the breadth of violence and intimidation that women experience on a daily basis in our communities.”

She added: “Recording this as a hate crime will give us a detailed picture of how often, when and where it is happening. It has been very difficult to build that picture before but we will now get detailed data to analyse.

“Showing that the police take it seriously will also give people the confidence to come forward and report offences.”

Melanie Jeffs first came to our attention when we were campaigning in the Nottingham area at the last general election. She was described to me (by a woman) as ‘a particularly vile lesbian radical feminist’. In April 2015 she won our Lying Feminist of the Month award. Links to all the award winners are here.

  1. Misogyny is a neologism invented by feminists to try to stop criticism of people who happen to be female. Notice how the police haven’t been able to define what misogyny is. That’s no accident. They keep the definition as wide as possible so they can catch anyone in the net. The 2003 Communications act makes it a crime to offend someone, so theoretically every single person in the UK could have been prosecuted under it.

    This really is generation snowflake.

      This is really quite frightening. Men are going to be jailed for an even wider array of fictional offences.

    The whole article and the stated policy is very disturbing and Orwellian.

    Quote

    “It means abuse or harassment which might not be a crime can be reported to and investigated by the police, and support for the victim put in place.”

    So on the say so of a women’s centre, police are being told to break the law and harass people for non-crimes. It is illegal for the police to harass people in this way. Also, no one is a victim until proven so. This misuse of English and/or due process is so telling. Driving a wedge between the police and the public helps no one.

    Quote

    “The force defines misogyny hate crime as: “Incidents against women that are motivated by an attitude of a man towards a woman and includes behaviour targeted towards a woman by men simply because they are a woman.””

    This definition does not include anything specific what so ever other than a it has to be a men’s behaviour being called into question. Behaviour by anyone, based on the other person’s sex, is not automatically anything to do with hate or abusive harassment. The definition also ignores women who may only have behaviour targeted to a woman simply because she is a woman.

    Quote
    “What is hate crime?

    A crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person’s identity.”

    Personal perception is not a sound basis for the definition of a hate crime. it is too subjective and will most like be very subjective to the person and open to wide interpretation. That there is prejudice can only be agreed on by the vast majority of the people, and not by pressure groups. and must be codified with concrete examples. Giving a list of areas where language or behaviour can affect a person’s feelings of safety need to be backed up by these clear examples, otherwise the very thing that is being legislated for, could be caused by the legislation i.e. innocent behaviour being made out to be abuse just on the “feelings” of another.

    The article also slyly implies at one point that domestic abuse is only done by men.

    All in all it is another example of feminists trying to stop men and women interacting in any way. If fails to recognised women can also abuse women, these incidents would not be recorded, and that misandry is just as common. Legally I would be interested to know if the police must also have a policy to record and support victims of misandry should this definitely be enacted.

    “A safer county for women”?
    Unlikely.
    A more dangerous one for men?
    Certainly.
