Tennessee State University Now Considers Whistling Sexual Harassment

The day has finally come, outrageous liberal propaganda has had a real effect on university policy. Now, if you blow air out of your mouth and your lips are in the wrong position, your guilty of sexual harassment.

Pucker your lips and blow out some air, now you're guilty of sexual harassment. Tennessee State University says "whistling in a suggestive manner" on the school property may constitute sexual harassment. How did America get to the point where whistling offends someone's delicate sensibilities?

Where are the days when women would smile back and wink or just stick their nose up and keep walking? The Tennessee University is too worried about keeping their "red light" rating from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. It's policies effectively allow school officials to punish free speech in various forms as sexual harassment.

Other things the university considers too offensive besides whistling are "suggestive or insulting sounds," "suggestive or obscene gestures," "unnecessary touching or brushing against the body," and essentially all forms of joking about sex in and out of the classroom.

Samantha Harris, FIRE's vice president of policy research, said a problem with the new policy is how vague it is. What is to be considered sexual harassment? Is any whistling sexual harassment? Can you no longer whistle a tun on the way to class for fear of being punished for sexual harassment?

Harris also said, "Very broad categories of speech are banned as harassment, simply because someone might find them suggestively offensive, and that’s something that courts have repeatedly held violates the first amendment." That's not the only policy Harris has a problem with, she says the policy's prohibition on jokes and humor are a violation of the first amendment also.

She also pointed out the university's policies on protesting, the school's policy reads, "Group dissent taking the form of demonstrations, marching, or sit-in activities will not be permitted inside university buildings or during university-wide events such as athletic contests, convocations, special lectures, assemblies…"

Harris Disagrees with the policy saying, "By banning any kind of demonstration during ‘university-wide events’ you’re really restricting students’ rights to protest and get their message across."
