Opinions from a male perspective?
It IS a hate crime. As long as Misandry is also classified as a hate crime too.

Absolutely. Their should be a law protecting both men and women. That goes for intimidation from women to men and vice versa. Can hardly impliment something with the ideals of protecting one group of people and simultaneously create a double standard.

Feel so sorry for the French public at the moment, becoming far too regular an occurrance.

It really is. All the idiots posting about the driver last night basically came down to 'sending them muslims back'. Made me cringe.
I read a story on the BBC website by a witness's account. The driver seemed to be enjoying himself which is the worse part. The man who was giving the interview, was there with his wife who is actually deaf but managed to hear the gunfire it was that loud. It truly is frightening. However, the ignorance I hear and read is becoming as bad.

The biggest problem with the current spate of terrorist attacks is that I believe they aren't coordinated in any way, just heavily fundamentalised individuals deciding to act on their own back. All the associations to Islamic State seem very tenuous on the whole.

Not quite sure how you stop that.

You've not to call them Islamic State. Andy Burnham will be very cross with you.

OK, how about Fundamentalist Nutjobs, instead?

Plus, will he write me letters telling me how cross he is?

This is what I was arguing last night. You can't put it on a group of individuals such as ISIS now. It genuinely could be anyone from any walk of life committing an act of terror anywhere at any given time. How on earth our we supposed to combat or prevent that?!

Just been reading this article about the man involved. Had to double take when I saw it was the Daily Mail!

It's hard to know if we got the lesser of the two evils...
I'm sure every woman that has already been attracted by looking after children will come under such scrutiny :shock:
