Professor Suspended for Masturbation Comment

A University of Denver professor plans to teach the same course next spring on the domestic and international consequences of the drug war that led to two anonymous student complaints, resulting in his being suspended this year for more than 100 days. 

The tenured professor who was suspended has been teaching for 50 years, said that the references in his course come in discussion of the failure of campaigns to impose moral standards on Americans. He compared fear of masturbation in the 19th century to the fear of drugs in recent times. 
In the entire scheme of things, aren't there more important things for students to get worked up about?
