(CNN)I made my son read the 80-page report about an alleged gang rape at the University of Minnesota in September. In an age in which we are putting into the White House a man who casually bragged about sexual assault, fathers hoping to raise boys who become men who treat women as equals don't have the luxury of looking away when the horrific happens to a female stranger instead of a well-known loved one.
