Cologne Court: Speaking Badly About Women is Sedition
Anyone who makes general derogatory comments about women can be convicted of sedition. Judges find that in Cologne.
The court ruled about a man who repeatedly refers to women on his website as “second class people” and “closer to animals,” among others.
According to the judges in Cologne, this is an attack on the human dignity of women.
According to German law, prosecution for sedition is mainly to protect minorities.
However, according to the judges, the rule can also be applied to women, although they are currently the majority in the Federal Republic.
After all, that does not mean that they have nothing to fear from others, according to the court.
The judges dismissed a lower court judgment, which acquitted the man. The matter must now be redone.
