An OB/GYN Responds to Will

The despicable right-wing pedant George "Ill" Will set off a storm of outrage over his recent column mocking the rise campus sexual assaults, saying they confer a "coveted status" on the victims.  Four U.S. Senators wrote an open letter to him, blasting him for his misinformed misogyny.  Now a physician, Dr. Jennifer Gunter OB/GYN, herself a rape victim, has responded to Ill Will's trash.  Read the whole letter, via Crooks and Liars, from which the following is excerpted:
"I am a 47 year-old financially and professionally secure woman in a stable, loving relationship and it took 25 years and your jackass column to get me to speak up about my rape. How easy do you think it is for a scared 20 year-old to call 911 or walk into a police station and say, 'I was just raped?'”
We'd love to toss Ill Will into a predatory prison environment, with only a Thesaurus and his Fruit Of The Looms.  That way, he'll quickly learn about the "coveted status" of rape victims.
