The New Definition of Harassment: "I Just Feel Offended"

AB 537 has added sexual orientation and gender identity to the nondiscrimination provisions in California's Education Code.

If there is any doubt as to the meaning of the new measures, THIS website of the San Francisco Unified School District helps us out: if someone merely feels offended, then they have been harassed.

SFUSD wrote: "Students don’t find using inappropriate language harassing, but I do! Then the language is harassing. If you find an action or use of language offensive/harassing then, it is.”

There is only one problem - I feel harassed by this radically subjective definition of harassment.
