France to fine men up to €750 for wolf-whistling or making sexual comments to women by maxwellhill in worldnews

English-speaking people think it's an expression of seduction or something that is said during a moment of sexual tension.

In fact, it's used to express a variation depending on the tone of mild shock, frustration, or irritation.

Wait, is the law in France or in the US? I thought we were talking about France. Or is US law now considered the rule of law in France?

Jesus fucking Christ. I swear someone's going to act violently on bullshit that is being shared on that sub, and /u/spez will still do nothing until the media decides to pick up on this.

Fox news is pretty much State media these days.

I dislike that people say that because there are plenty of state media (CBC, BBC, France TV, etc) that act independent of any party or whoever is in power, and their news division is capable of great investigative work.

So there's no point in doing anything, ever. I got ya.

I mean, somehow the argument no longer works when it comes to driving regulations, but for there's no such thing as responsible gun practices because someone will find a way around them.

You seem intent on this whole "there's no point in protecting anything if someone wants it bad enough" thing, which makes me wonder how you're able to function in a society. Do you ever go to a bank and tell people they're fools for using safety deposit boxes?

No no for sure. A fucking 17 year old can crack any safe worthy of the name. I mean, you wonder why there's an entire fucking industry that makes things that can be opened by any 17 year old with a saw, but I suppose there's a sucker born every minute. Until they turn 17 anyways.

You can saw a safe in half? Are your safes made of wood or something?

Really? A 17 year old is able to crack any safe? I didn't realize kids were that powerful. Fuck, I'm 40 and I can't sure as shit crack a safe if I don't have the keys.

Apparently the shooter took the guns from his dad... Maybe start with ensuring that gun owners should be responsible enough to lock up their weapons so that their kids don't take them to shoot up their school?

No it isn't. It's about taking the tool away from EVERYONE now. That's why nothing gets done.

There is more regulation and tests devoted to make sure people are responsible car drivers than for making sure they're responsible gun owners. In this case, the problem is that the shooter's father didn't secure his weapons well enough.

More generally, the issue I have with the anti-regulation rhetoric is that ANY regulation is considered either unfeasible or unlawful.

You should return it, that's clearly false advertisement.
