Defining harassment

Princeton University says:
The University defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when ... such verbal or physical conduct has the effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work, academic performance, or living conditions by creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment.

Sexual harassment makes victims feel uncomfortable, hindering their ability to function in school, at work, or in social settings. Both men and women can be targets of sexual harassment, and it can occur between individuals of the same gender. Sexual harassment comes in many forms – it may be intentional or accidental, subtle or obvious.
No, that is not harassment. Harassment is repeatedly annoying someone for no legitimate purpose, over a prolonged period of time.

FIRE has info on other colleges trying to restrict free speech.
