Unsavoury types will soon need to hand out questionnaires to prospective victims to ascertain, ahead of time, whether or not they belong a protected group, before in indulging in unsavouriness towards them.
It seems almost reasonable, of late, to be very horrible to ordinary people. You might get a caution for stabbing heterosexuals, for instance. Whereas, if it is a gay, then automatically it becomes a hate-crime to even say something unfriendly, which for some reason, is mega-worse than a mere non-hate crime.
Makes perfect sense, really, I suppose.
Although I find it difficult to see why.
