I mean, okay, I can accept words like "entitled" and "morally superior." I have even referred to your own brand of journalism of reeking of the latter, and isn't it funny, but now we Baby Boomers are guilty of calling the Millennial generation, our children and grandchildren, the latter.

The crisis of sexual assault on campus is very real, but likely not what you understand it to be. Some parents have conveniently brushed-off what has tragically escalated to a weekly flow of news stories about a rape at this college or that college.

I'm not surprised when crap is written that perpetuates rape culture. That doesn't make it less important to call out and it certainly doesn't make the discussions that crop up around the idiocy less valid. Which brings us to George Will.
