    Not really, your earlier example of "We all discriminate by choosing our sexual partners" example is apples and oranges...that's on a personal level...this is on a professional level. It's fine if he doesn't want to date her.

    Except his reasoning for not answering those questions is that a woman was the one asking them....he'd answer the same questions if they were posed to him a by a man.

    And it's a little bit more than "he wouldn't answer her questions"....he wouldn't even acknowledge her presence.
    It wasnt institutional. Had this of been a job interview then, yeah, go ahead and fine him. Everyone has the right to be an ass as long as it isnt incitement of violence.

    I can't say for this particular talk show...but many do provide financial compensation for the guests that appear on their shows

    If someone interviews you, are you forced to answer? I believe you have the right to not say anything actually, hell, even ignore them...

    Still, I can't see jail time over this. I still don't have enough details to know the full situation. I would still need to know:

    Did the interviewer know specifically that this would be his response? Did they advise him that he would be interviewed by a woman? Was the interviewer trying to "ambush" the guest?

    Was the intent of the guest to publicly humiliate the host on her own show? Did he know (was he informed) that it would be a woman ahead of time? Did it seem that he had prior knowledge of this, and was given opportunity to decline the interview?

    Was he under some kind of contract, where his being on the show and answering questions would be considered part of his job? Was he being paid for his appearance, or was he merely a guest?


    If the interviewer knew his stance beforehand, and they invited him on the shows without letting him know he would be interviewed by a woman as a "gotcha" moment, well, I think that would be irresponsible as well.

    If it were on the street, I'd agree with you...but he agreed to be a guest on her show...that does make it institutional.

    As a funny added tidbit, his party, ISLAM, demands, among other things, to strip women of the right to vote, introduce seperated seating in public transportation, deny women the right to run for any office and outlaw any non-Halal food in school cafeterias.
    How is that illegal? It's a dick move and disrespectful, but there is no reason for him to be imprisoned by his government for it. People will see him for the little shit he is and be treated as such in public. Government should not intervene in childish stuff like this and IMPRISON FOR 6 MONTHS.

    It's pointless asking that question, either they're racist or they think it's hilarious to pretend to be racist. Either way they probably have a well rehearsed faux-outrage response of "how can a clown be a Nazi?"

    He hasn't actually been imprisoned (assuming "suspended" means the same thing in Belgian law as it does in British.)

    It was institutional as it was in a professional setting where she was the host of a talk-show. In essence she was unable to do her job properly because he refused to interact with her due to her gender.

    Is that really the only reason to punish someone? Inciting to violence?

    Would you be okay with people inciting others to discriminate against women: eg. "don't pay them as much as men", "don't hire them", "treat them differently", etc. ?

    Violence isn't the only evil in this world.

    For those yet unaware he is advocating that a person with believes that are even considered fringe for Muslims should be given a stage and allowed to act as if Europe is under ISIS rule, a sharia law. The party he stands for has very repressive ideas about our society, so much it makes Nazi Germany look like a free democratic state.

    Honestly you should be shamed on yourself. I believe you were Belgian but i hope you're not, or maybe you're from the southern half most people tehre are politically handicapped. Than again you vote for who ever allows you to be the biggest leech on the dole.
    What do you mean?

    I think it was a good thing he got punished for discrimination.

    Other than that I'm amused to see the mass-confusion of rightoids who can't figure out whether they should defend their fellow mancels or be happy a brown person got punished.

    Doesn't matter. He discriminated against her in a professional setting.

    Yeah it is... How is it not meaningful to refuse to aknowledge someone because she is a woman? What is the network supposed to do? Hire only men?

    Wouldn't those three things amount to a civil suit and some sort of monetary penalty in other parts of the world? Seems like a 6 month prison sentence is as bit heavy handed for Slander, but that's just me. They can do what they want, I guess.

    Though, something else that stands out... and maybe this is just my interpretation, but it sounds like this guy was set up to fail from the get go. Based on the way he reacted to the female host, it's probably known that he has an old way of thinking towards women... and thus, he shouldn't have been invited. I have a hard time believing that the people who invited him didn't know how this man acts towards women.

    Let's hope his jail time actually does something other than increase his negative views towards women.

    No, he didn't hurt anyone.
    I honestly can not believe my eyes! So he is refusing to deal with women in a professional capacity and you think this is a personal issue and harmless?

    Than i apologize the leading up posts, led me to believe you were opposed to this ruling. I don't subscribe to far right or left nonsense none of them hold consistency in either what they believe in, i don't see any conservative movement speaking out against this, unless you want to include the Islam party in that group and they'll be a sole opposer of that ruling in that group.

    The other way to look at is that, based on the way he thinks about women, he shouldn't have agreed to appear on her show in the first place. It's a two-way street.
