Italy’s highest court has made a very strange ruling. According to Newser, it’s now a crime to tell a man he has “no balls.” The decision came about after a fight between two cousins, when one used the insult against the other during a courtroom exchange.
“Apart from the vulgarity of the term used, the expression definitely also has an injurious quality,” said the male judge in his ruling. “It refers not only to the target’s lack of virility but also to his weakness of character, lack of determination, competence, and coherence—virtues that, rightly or wrongly, are still identified as pertaining to the male gender.”
