297. It's different for any OPPRESSED GROUP. Not just women.
Bigottry is not a "personal attack." It's an attack on an entire group.

People who are targets of misogyny and racism and don't need to be "treated" as if they are "one half of the problem."

A black person who has a cross burned in their yard in the middle of the night is not "one half of the problem."

There is a world of difference between trying to influence a person's opinion, and trying to terrorize a person into submission and hiding because of their identity in a group.
