It is a crime now to discriminate against accents in France

France announced that it is criminalizing the discrimination of people with regional accents. The country added accents to the list of causes of actionable discrimination in France. The law was approved by 98 votes to three in the lower parliament of the nation. The maximum punishment which has been listed under the crime involves three years of imprisonment and a fine.

It's encouraged to hold up caricatures of the prophet Mohammed because free speech but making fun of regional dialects can land you three years in prison... 🤡 🌎

This is silly. I am fine making fun of accents because I know that somewhere people are making fun of my accent too. Everything should be subject to humor.

What is discrimination based on accent? That someone, for example, doesn't get a job because that person has a certain accent?

Actual discrimination against an accent, and with that I mean ostracising people with a certain accent from society is a bad thing and I can understand making it illegal. But, making it illegal to just make fun of people with accents should not be illegal. The day it will be illegal to make fun of the swedish scanian dialect is the day I start to riot, along with my fellow scanes.

100% virtue signaling while basic freedoms are suppressed and police brutality (against all ppl even though only some make it to the headlines..) is concealed. Outrageous

Oh you know whole bunch of snooty French people are going to go to jail. If they only would make a law that would make it illegal not to take a shower every two days

Discrimination is totally different than free speech. Caricatures are hurtful but a lot of free speech at least starts a dialogue. Many hurtful things are said about Christianity and Judaism also. Religious freedom let’s people praise God as they see fit, praising God shouldn’t hurt anyone’s sensitivity.

In context this actually makes a lot of sense for France specifically; Many regions of the country have "accents" which could be considered closer to mutually intelligible, related languages, with their own vowel shifts and different words. Historically, these "langues d'Oil" have been discriminated against by the central Parisian government... try to see the good in this.
