Hate speech laws, but only for some!

Radio NZ reports:

Gender Minorities Aotearoa’s national coordinator Ahi Wi-Hongi said the reforms also needed to be clarified so they couldn’t be used against the minority communities they are supposed to protect.

“I think it’s really important the legislation is really specific about who and what types of speech will be covered by the legislation. We want to make sure that whatever is in these laws will protect trans people and not be used against trans people who are standing up to bullying and harassment.”

The translation of this is that they want the laws to stop speech they disagree with, but allow their speech.
