America Isn't France: We Are Free To Insult Women, Though It's Wrong

In France, it’s perfectly okay for the government to make “gender-based insults” a crime. But it’s not at all okay here.

In America, we take our freedom for granted, but we cherish our rights. Not only is that wrongheaded, but it’s dangerous…

The Constitution’s “Bill of Rights” actually confers no rights to Americans. It does, however, safeguard freedoms and rights we naturally possess. This is what makes America different from, say, Europe, where rights are derived from the government and granted to the people.
