Ainda sobre "discurso de ódio"

French book I Hate Men sees sales boom after government adviser calls for ban, em The Guardian:

Pauline Harmange’s Moi les hommes, je les déteste explores whether women “have good reason to hate men”, and whether “anger towards men is actually a joyful and emancipatory path, if it is allowed to be expressed”. Its small French publisher, Monstrograph, called it a “feminist and iconoclastic book” that “defends misandry as a way of making room for sisterhood”.

Ralph Zurmély, a special adviser to France’s ministry for gender equality, called it an “ode to misandry”. Zurmély, in an email obtained by Mediapart, told Monstrograph that “incitement to hatred on the grounds of gender is a criminal offence”, and asked the publisher to pull the book from publication “on pain of criminal prosecution”.
A respeito disto, Jesse Walker escreve: «This is both a "Hate speech laws will be used against the left too" story and a "Censorship can make things more popular" story.».
