What is not acceptable at any time is demeaning speech and behaviour. This involves any verbal or nonverbal behaviour that someone experiences as undermining that person’s self-esteem and implies that they are less than worthy as a human being. Such behaviours include, but are not limited to, name-calling, ridicule, sarcasm, or other actions which ‘put down’ people. Demeaning a person with such physical behaviours as rolling one’s eyes when the person speaks or otherwise negating her importance as a community member is also unacceptable. Anyone encountering such hostile behaviour has the right and responsibility to surface it as an issue.
