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.

>>were intended to free students

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.
