Dan Levin, Brigham Young Students Protest 'Weaponized' Honor Code. New York Times, Apr 13, 2019

Quote:

"As a student at Brigham Young University [1875- ; based in Provo (43 miles (69 km) south of Salt Lake City), Utah], Sidney Draughon committed two violations of the school’s honor code, which prohibits everything from sexual activity to drinking coffee. First, officials faulted her for wearing clothing that they deemed indecent in a vacation photograph. Then, in December of her senior year, an ex-boyfriend confessed that the two had engaged in 'sexual touching,' which led officials to put Ms Draughon on probation, preventing her from graduating on time.  Those experiences inspired Ms. Draughon, after she had received her diploma last summer, to start a social media account sharing her concerns.

"Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which owns the university * * *

"Ms Draughon, 24, kept her concerns about the honor code quiet until she had left school, but now her Honor Code Stories account on Instagram has attracted more than 34,000 followers and generated nearly 200 tales of punishment meted out by the office charged with enforcing the code.

"Every student at Brigham Young must sign the school’s honor code to enroll in classes. The morality contract prohibits — and punishes — violations that include immodest attire, premarital sexual activity, beards, and the consumption of alcohol, tobacco, drugs and coffee [and tea, because both contain caffeine, a stimulant].

My comment: There is no need to read the rest.
