Suzanne Harrington: Why isn’t misogyny a straightforward hate crime?

Article here. Excerpt:

'Why then isn’t misogyny a straightforward hate crime?

If an individual says on television that they wouldn’t want to shag you because you’re black / brown / Jewish / Muslim / Irish, etc, they are not just being vile, but liable for prosecution.

However, say it about a woman on the basis of her womanhood, and she’s fair game.

There are no legal repercussions for the hatred of women, unless you actually rape or kill one.'

... where an opinion, unpopular though it may be, can't get you arrested.

I wonder if Mizz Harrington feels the same way about women who bash men on TV, message boards, etc.?
