Who is covered?

I’m curious about Police Scotland now, because of their high-handed persecution of Marion Millar.

In case you haven’t seen the post earlier today:

So I looked at their Twitter and I didn’t have to look far.

They say “A hate crime is any crime which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by malice & ill-will towards a social group” but I don’t think that’s true. I don’t think they act on reports of hate crimes against women. The new hate crimes law (which is separate from this incident, which cites the Malicious Communications Act) doesn’t include women as targets of hate crime. I guess women are the new men? We’re the ones with so much social power and physical strength and general dominance that we can’t be the targets of hate crimes?

It’s never International Day Against Misogyny. Why is that exactly?
