When Is a Student's Political Communication not Political: Bethel School District vs. Fraser.
Siegel, Paul
Communication Education, v36 n4 p347-55 Oct 1987
Argues that the Supreme Court's decision--upholding the constitutionality of disciplinary actions taken against a public high school student who delivered a speech laden with sexual metaphor (though not obscene language) in a nominating assembly--was improper in that it attempted to articulate a false dichotomy between "political communication" and "sexually oriented speech."
