George Will's take on progressivism, campus assault and victimization unleashes the outrage

Advertisement

George Will wrote a controversial column which ran in the Washington Post. The column is titled “Colleges become the victims of progressivism.” Here’s the opening paraphraph:

Colleges and universities are being educated by Washington and are finding the experience excruciating. They are learning that when they say campus victimizations are ubiquitous (“micro-aggressions,” often not discernible to the untutored eye, are everywhere), and that when they make victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges, victims proliferate. And academia’s progressivism has rendered it intellectually defenseless now that progressivism’s achievement, the regulatory state, has decided it is academia’s turn to be broken to government’s saddle.

The rest here.

Will’s column is in part about how university attempts to prevent victimization can actually have the reverse effect and increase the number of victims. Will also wrote that progressivism makes victimhood a “coveted status.” However, many chose to read Will’s column as simply saying “getting raped is a coveted status”:
