Under consideration at U. of California: Granting students the right to not be offended

Here we go again.

As if it wasn’t bad enough that the University of California came up with a list of phrases that are supposedly “microaggressions” and, hence, to be avoided; now it will consider recognizing the right to not be offended.

The proposed policy, which will be debated this coming Thursday, says in part:

Intolerance has no place at the University of California. We define intolerance as unwelcome conduct motivated by discrimination against, or hatred toward, other individuals or groups. It may take the form of acts of violence or intimidation, threats, harassment, hate speech, derogatory language reflecting stereotypes or prejudice, or inflammatory or derogatory use of culturally recognized symbols of hate, prejudice, or discrimination.

Everyone in the University community has the right to study, teach, conduct research, and work free from acts and expressions of intolerance. The University will respond promptly and effectively to reports of intolerant behavior and treat them as opportunities to reinforce the University’s Principles Against Intolerance.

It clarifies that the policy “does not apply to the free exchange of ideas in keeping with the principles of academic freedom and free speech.”
