For a while there, before the End of an Error, it seemed like a lot of European countries were starting to outpace us in terms of social viability, among other things. Indeed, the Obama era seemed to really set the United States back in terms of innovation and truly forward thinking.
Now, we have President Donald Trump who built his entire campaign around “Making America Great Again” and let’s face it — that’s why we voted him in.
Despite the polls, the media and political smack talk, and the arrogant assurance of those same people who were SURE “Trump will never be President of the United States”, we showed them that we saw the forest for the trees during the last 8 years.
With this move, and the great work Trump has done so far, I feel like these same European countries are really setting themselves back — digging their own graves so to speak and this latest move may just prove it.
So you already know that far-left whack-a-doo Emmanuel Macron won the French Presidency and while you may not think this has much to do with us it does. It has an effect on how the world may perceive us, true or false as that vision may be.
Not too long ago, the United Kingdom announced that you could face legal consequences by “misgendering” people. Weird, right? You can’t call someone by the biological gender that they were born.
So in comes Macron, announce that France is trying to achieve the same thing.
Macron marked the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women by promising “to fight for the non-negotiable equality of both sexes” during his first term in office.
“Let’s seal a pact of equality between men and women,” Macron said. “It is essential that shame changes camp. Gender-based insults will be punishable by law. Offenders will face a deterrent fine.”
The country is already considering making cat calling and insisting a woman give you her phone number illegal offenses. Aside from the fines on gender-based insults, Macron wants “on demand” bus stops where women can stop a bus anywhere to make their way home safely. The president also wants to make the age of consent 15 to make it easier to punish people who have sex with minors.
