Personally, I would rather see language that talks of "respect" (a
positive term) rather than "anti-harrassment" (a negative term).

Thus, we can be on the lookout for behavior or materials as far as how
they respect others, perhaps making some positive suggestions, as
opposed to searching for harrassment as if it were some kind of
witch-hunt (meaning no disrespect to witches of course).
