on our radar

Here's all the news on our radar today:

• Washington Post columnist George Will argues in an absurd opinion piece that statistics about sexual assault are exaggerated and that rape survivors lie about their experiences to claim a "coveted status that confers privileges." Wait, what?! [Salon] 

• Meanwhile, in reality, it looks like schools are being too easy on students who commit sexual assaults. [Slate] 

• This weekend's Tony Awards were the "blackest ever," with big wins for A Raisin in the Sun. [Ebony] 

• Michigan Republicans jokingly tweeted "Don't say we don't understand women" with a photo of three male state representatives reading fashion magazines. That might be funny if the Michigan GOP wasn't constantly undermining women's rights. [CNN] 

• The great Emily Nussbaum discusses the often-overlooked British TV show My Mad Fat Diary. [New Yorker] 

• Children of immigrants who are applying for citizenship will have to start the paperwork all over again when they turn 21, the Supreme Court ruled today. [Guardian] 

• R. Kelly's child came out as transgender—the reporting around his identity shows the depth of trans ignorance in media. [Jezebel] 

• Anyone who's done online dating will probably connect with this rant about guys who don't ever read books written by women. [The Frisky]
