What is Hate Speech?

Spread the love

Even though we have a clear definition of hate speech, we still can’t agree on what counts as hate speech. So allow me to give you examples of what I consider to be hate speech and what I consider to be free speech.

All the cisgender straight while male bashing we see on TV is not hate speech.

Typing #killallmen on Twitter is hate speech.

Criticizing Islam and Muslims is not hate speech.

Saying that all Muslims should be kicked out of your country is borderline hate speech. I’m actually not sure about such statement.

Saying that all Muslims should be locked up in concentration camps is hate speech.

But that’s just my opinion.
