Consider the case of Toni Blake, a graduate student teaching human sexuality at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.During a lecture on contraception, she used a banana to demonstrate condom application, and in order to emphasize the importance of wearing a condom throughout the sex act she joked that "men are like basketball players, they dribble before they shoot."A male student accused Blake of sexual harassment, charging that she "objectified" the penis and created a "hostile environment for him as a man." In an interview with Nat Hentoff, Blake said, "'I'm not going to teach human sexuality again.Not in the state of Nebraska.I'm not going through that again'" (p. 121).
Kors remarks that "such acts of self-censorship are rarely discussed, and do not become 'quantifiable.'" But he cites Professor David Moshman, president of the Academic Freedom Coalition of Nebraska, who reported to the university's Academic Senate: "I have heard report of three cases in which [University of Nebraska] faculty apparently deleted units from their regular courses that they feared might include or elicit statements offensive to some students" (121-22).Add to that the new acts of self-censorship that presumably arise at the University of Nebraska with each new semester-and then multiply the total by the numerous four-year and two-year colleges in the United States.

For example, a male undergraduate in a human sexuality course at the University of Nebraska accused Toni Blake, a female graduate student teacher, of sexual harassment.Blake used a banana to demonstrate proper condom application and joked that men, like basketball players, "dribble before they shoot."A male student complained that she "objectified the penis" and created a "hostile environment for him as a man." In another incident, a married male Christian student at California State University in Sacramento filed a sexual harassment lawsuit after a lesbian psychology professor presented a lecture on female masturbation.
