Reject this amendment
 

Reject this amendment.  If passed, this can lead to widespread censorship of ideas and violation of student's First Amendment  rights to access ideas from multiple perspectives.  A democratic society must encourage open  discussion of ideas even if the ideas are repugnant to some.
