Sexist speech is illegal in Belgium

A Belgian court has fined a man 3,000 euros for contempt of a police officer, making sexist remarks in public and serious violation of a woman's dignity because of her gender. The man, who wasn't named by media, was stopped by a female police officer for a traffic violation and told her she should be doing a job "adapted to women." He became the first person convicted under a new new law barring sexism in public.

Perhaps the police would be better utilized pursuing actual criminals, rather than harassing citizens for imaginary "thought crimes."
