The law basically makes it ILLEGAL to hurt someone's feelings. Think of how insane that is.

I wouldn't be surprised if you could weave them a rope out of it. hou could claim that the virtual out lashes helped you deal with stress and emotional instability and now that they made this venting tool illegal it causes you sever emotional damage and stress leading to a negative effect on your day to day life. As the cause of this are rhr public representing poltics and you now associate there faces with this deep emotional distress they have to step back as under this law you simply deal with having them be present on any news site or reading there comments in official political releases.

Just wait til it's more punishable to verbally insult someone than it is to beat the shit out of them.

We're getting to the point where Sticks and Stones are the lesser evil.

They already have a law against saying mean things about immigrants. Why would they create a law for those uncultured Swedes to abuse?

The problem with defending human freedom is one must spend much of their time defending scoundrels, as it is scoundrels oppressive laws are first aimed at, and it must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

On the lighter side of the pending SJWar, more of us are human shaped so we'll have a distinct advantage!

I'm sure it will apply first and foremost to causing emotional distress to the members of the New Zealand government.

Oh, don't forget the emotional health of political candidates either. Or NZ could also go full USA and say that "You're a person, You're a person, every entity is a person" and use this for all kinds of censorship.... Lets put this law into the USA... well... if, according to Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, corporations have religious rights, just like people, who's to say they don't have emotional rights too?

I, Walmart, as a corporation person, am emotionally distressed by this blog article about my anti union practices. It should be removed and the author jailed...

There goes freedom of the press...

I think they already attempted to outlaw some forms of satire. Making fun of people in public office or some such.

Godamnit. Fuck you, pussy-ass kiwis. Fuck you right in the pussy. I hope the hamplanets and professionally whining SJWs/White Knights eat you alive as you suffocate on the putrid stench of your relentless mediocrity.

Sorry, just getting this out of my system before someone decides to make getting angry illegal.

Sincerely,

Random Canadian that still has a semblance of freedom of speech.

P.S: Have fun trying to extradite me.

Best part of this whole thing was when they were basically asked "if you're suing him for emotional distress, why do you seem to have none at all" and their response was "sorry for not being perfect victims."

Funny thing, I decided not to have my honeymoon in NZ because of this stupidity. Even though I really wanted to see where they filmed LOTR.
