Survivor Privilege?

So, I’m a little late to the party on this one again.

As you may know by now, George Will said something pretty much unforgivable recently, as his his custom.  If you don’t want to follow the links, he essentially said that victimhood is a “coveted status that confers privileges”, causing “victims (to) proliferate”.  In other words, sexual assault victims are taking every little thing and blowing it out of proportion because victimhood is a privilege.

This twitter thread gives an answer to that, that answer being “Fuck you, George Will.”  Still, there are a lot of people who think like George Will does.  You should read this thread to see why they’re wrong.
