European Parliament blocks all mails containing the ”gender stereotype” on International Women’s Day.

Breaking: European Parliament blocks all mails containing the ”gender stereotype” on International Women’s Day. You couldn’t make it up.

In an attempt to isolate themselves from voters who were outraged about the looming ban on porn and sexual communication online (between consenting adults), the European Parliament’s IT department resorted to spamflagging all protests. Specifically, they were silently dropping every mail that contained the words ”gender stereotypes” – on International Women’s Day.

Really, you couldn’t make it up.

(Verified by technical tests with/without these specific words.)
