Bowers v. Hartwick (1986) legalizing the criminalization of sodomy by the state, and Lawrence v. Texas
(2003) which reversed Bowers. 16 Surprisingly, many of these “private” papers favored same-sex
marriage: this immediately raised the question in my mind why so few students had articulated their
opinions in class. Such a discrepancy between what students were willing to discuss in their papers and
what they were unwilling to discuss in the classroom was striking. The same general tendency also held
true for discussions about the war in Iraq. Again, a discrepancy emerged between private and public
expression: those few students who were willing to express opposition or doubts about the war did so
privately in their papers, but never or rarely in the more public realm of the classroom.
