Penn and Teller on the First Amendment and University Speech Codes

I think the university speech codes were intended to free students from having to deal with their fellow good Americans calling them "honey", "sweetie", "sweet cheeks", "nappy headed ho", "nigger", "spic" and etc.

What is wrong with that?

Students go to school to learn from their instructors and any diversion in the form of intimidation, fear, hate, stalking, abuse or violence is just not appropriate in that environment.

It doesn't free anyone; it creates a penalty for speaking words that some (not all) find offensive.

You don't have the right to not be offended.

If no one has the right not to be offended then doesn't that just lead to an escalation of distress?

What goes around comes around you nappy headed, half-breed, spic loving, wop hugging, cocksucking, mother fucking faggot.

Just sayin
