While I applaud an initiative to deter bullying, I am troubled by the words “an intentional course of conduct …emotional abuse.”
Given that some people need safe zones to protect themselves from ideas with which they disagree, how will emotional abuse be enforced and how will intent be determined? If I disagree with you about an issue, is that emotional abuse with intent? And who decides?
I hope that the intent behind this initiative is not to control speech and allow no room for disagreement.
