Not even Cats? Not even King Lear?

In tonight's state quals meet, I learned something interesting from a student:

Hate crime sentencing enhancements, the student argued, is policing thoughts. And in a democracy, that's simply antitheatrical.

Not a slip of the tongue, either. He repeated it in CX. Antitheatrical.

I never heard why being antitheatrical is unjust.

Because people are born theatrical. It isn't a choice. To be antitheatrical is hate crime in itself. Wait, that's not going in the right direction, is it?
