Opinion from TheSorrentino.com: University Policy Allows Expulsion for ‘Mean’ Facial Expressions

“You better get that look off of your face.” You expect to hear it from your mother when you are seven.  

But guess what boys and girls? Now the PC enforcement brigades are concerned not only with your words (and of course those evil thoughts they just know you harbor) but with the way you contort your face. Express displeasure at the wrong thing? Well, then, it’s off to the gulag for you. (This particular university is already in American Siberia.)

(From The National Review)

The University of Montana Western has a policy that allows for punishing students for “mean” words or “facial expressions” — and that punishment could technically be as severe as expulsion.

“While discussions may become heated and passionate, they should never become mean, nasty or vindictive in spoken or printed or emailed words, facial expressions, or gestures,” states the Student Code of Conduct.

The author goes on to explain that even if the university probably wouldn’t expel someone for frowning – it could. And that should not be.
