Washington State University, which receives millions of taxpayer dollars, has a speech code declaring that speech "that is injurious, or potentially injurious to a person's...emotional...well-being...is subject to disciplinary action." That speech code could be used to punish students who quote the Bible. It could be used to punish students who criticize other students' academic arguments.
The University of Texas at San Antonio (also tax-funded) has a speech code stating that "anonymous publications are prohibited." But some of America's greatest writings have been anonymous. Thomas Paine's Common Sense was originally published anonymously, and so was Edgar Allan Poe's first collection of poems. By banning anonymous publications, the university is using taxpayer money to stifle important ideas.
College is supposed to provide an environment for students to grow intellectually. Speech codes destroy that environment and defeat the purpose of having universities. Universities should not be censoring the conservative talk of their students.
