french politician fined for making chicken noises

What a load of chickenshit. Conservative French politician Philippe Le Ray has been fined $1,700 for making chicken noises at a female colleague while she spoke before the National Assembly on Tuesday. Oh, yes, he did this in front of everyone. Green Party MP Veronique Massonneau, an ecologist deputy, was speaking before the government about pension reform when Le Ray began loudly clucking. (In France, the word for “chicken” is used as a slur against women.)  Massonneau stopped speaking and addressed him: “That’s enough! I’m not a chicken.” The leader of the National Assembly then temporarily suspended the parliamentary session and publicly chastised Le Ray when they returned. I guess it’s sort of a relief that politicians are juvenile sexist douchebags the world over? [Guardian UK, Belfast Telegraph UK] [Image of a chicken via Shutterstock]
