Please do not use too many big words though, my little French mind is not up to that much as you can imagine . Being an idiot is so awfully hard, all that empty space between the ears, not being able to tie my shoes laces and of course the utter inability to think in a logical and sensible fashion. Such a rare activity for people of my Nationality.

So spare a thought for this unfortunate and be gentle. One should not mock the afflicted, it is surely terribly bad manners. Keep it simple and I might just be able to flow of your learned lecture on the country of my birth.

Now yur reply is really funny to a american;thinks for explaining.As they say ;you can tell a frenchman something but not too much.

Shouting at your partner will not be crimilized. RTFA!

it is expected to cover every kind of slur from repeated rude remarks about a partner's appearance, false allegations of infidelity and threats of physical violence.

No where does it say "yelling"
This is NOT about YELLING you morons.

Violence was not mentioned and there are already laws for those situations.

You're welcome ! Always pleased to help. I'm a French-Woman by the way ( well, getting on for being a Brit by now after 21 years in Old Blighty) so it's even worse because my pretty little brain is even tinier than my more fortunate male counterparts. Woe is little me.

What shall I do but cook ,bake, breed and defer to my betters with a penis?

Incorrect. It must contain an "immediate" threat of violent or offensive contact.

For instance, If I say "Pow! to the moon Alice!" and I am not in the immediate vicinity (in action to attack) or in a position to purpose immediate threat of violence or offensive contact, then no... it is not an assault.

laws concerning "threats" mostly require a vehicle that legitimizes them. Verbal comments without the vehicle are simply hot air and the law treats them as such.

Again, RTFA:

I knew it wouldn't be long until somebody clouded yelling and beating in order to support this non-sense. What ever it takes right Greg?
