How politically correct is this?

From the libertarian online newsletter this quote comes from Bowling Green State University. Richard Zeller, sociology teacher, wanted to teach a class on "political correctness" (PC) when he was denied by his colleagues because some of the reading material included books that were critical of the campuses speech codes. In what is surely one of the classic PC quotes ever uttered, Kathleen Dixon, the director of the women's studies department, told a local newspaper:

"We forbid any course that says we restrict free speech."

I'm not sure but is she related to George W. Bush? :)

As a not-so-proud alumn of Bowling Green (if it is the one in Ohio), I think that sounds typical of that school. I graduated 2 years ago, and I remember they were talking about creating this course then.
