Michigan State Protests Focus on Columnist George Will’s Rape Stance, Women’s Dignity

An honorary doctorate being awarded by Michigan State University to Washington Post columnist George Will at MSU's fall commencement ceremonies is the focal point of protests in East Lansing today.

More than 800 people had RSVP'd and were expected this morning for protests that were also held earlier this week, according to organizers.

MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon has released a statement saying that while the conservative Will's "visit will be painful for many, ... it does not mean the university wishes to cause survivors of sexual assault distress. And it does not mean we are backing away from our commitment to continuously improving our response to sexual assault."

That's not a bad thing. I wanted them to grow up independent, and live life to the fullest, and that's what they're doing, and that's the best gift I could ever ask for.

I wrote the following essay last year when my oldest, who lives in Los Angeles now, graduated from college, and I thought I'd share it with you.
