* For several decades, in most culturally European civilisations murder has been punished more severely if it was pre-planned. In Constitutional Law (punishment determined by law-writing bodies) countries they have Categories/Types/'Degrees' of Murder, which carry different sentences, and in Common Law (punishment based upon Judicial precedent) countries they don't but premeditation still affects the sentencing if the defendent is found guilty.
* Strangely averted with British laws regarding homosexuality. All of these laws were about men having relationships with other men, with no mention made to lesbian or bisexual women; this was because the government actually thought that if they changed the law and made lesbianism illegal, then they would be introducing the concept of lesbianism to the public and thus giving "innocent women" the idea that it was possible. This still had the intended effect, however, with many women being unable to safely come out and some even feeling pressured to marry men anyway.

This still had the intended effect of causing the oppressed to oppress themselves, however, as a lot of women who were alive at the time have noted that they felt alone and had no words for what they were.

Added DiffLines:

** Slightly averted in the case of "possession with the intent to supply" type crimes, in that you can possess more drugs/weapons/whatever than one person is ever going to need just for themselves (so the idea that you have that much of it so you can give/sell it to other people makes sense). The problem comes in proving that intent when other explanations are still possible.
