Quite the Speech Code

FIRE’s Speech Code of the Month, from SUNY – New Paltz:

This policy applies to all members of the campus community, individuals doing business with the
campus, any person utilizing campus facilities. This will include SUNY New Paltz’s campus, any off-site
facilities, and work-related travel….

Examples of Prohibited Conduct …

Distribution, display or discussion of any written or graphic material that ridicules, denigrates,
insults, belittles, or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual or group because of protected
status.

“Protected status” seems to refer to “sex, sexual orientation, predisposing genetic characteristics, race, color, national origin, age, religion, creed, marital status, military status, or disability, including pregnancy.” So better not distribute, display, or discuss any material that show hostility or aversion to Scientologists, extremist Muslims, conservative Christians, gays, members of the military, or anyone over thirty. Thanks to Paul Milligan for the pointer.
