You know what this opinion reminds me of? Some of the MacKinnon/Dworkin
anti-pornography arguments and some arguments for punishing hate speech. I
think that lurking in this opinion--though not directly expressed--is the
idea that a teacher's active membership in and public defense of NAMBLA
constitutes an injury, a denial of rights, a denial of equality, etc. to the
students--especially since most of them are legally children and, therefore,
comprise a poweless minority.
I'm not taking sides here, since I have yet to resolve the pornography and
hate speech issues in my own mind. The association just intrigued me.
