Nursing student has a problem with women

Via Jen at Blag Hag:

This winner, the now-infamous Ben Cochran, decided to submit a steaming pile of excrement as an op-ed column for his school paper.  He was at his campus student health center with a cold, and was horrified to see that some of the patients ahead of him were (gasp!) getting prescribed birth control pills.

As if that version wasn't bad enough, an employee of the newspaper decided to leak the rough draft to the public.  Some particularly putrid bits from the uncensored version of his diatribe:
Classic Manchild.
If you have a lung problem, you see a pulmonologist. If you have a heart problem, you see a cardiologist. If you have a cunt problem, you see a gynecologist.
First of all, not even porn stars need that much birth control. Second of all, do you mean to seriously tell me that I’ve been sitting here in misery for the last half an hour just so that this gaggle of preemie sluts could get a free pass on harlotry?
Go read your Redbook in the lobby of a specialist while you get a mani as you wait to get your hatchet wound inspected.
And finally,
Please take your gaping holes elsewhere for medical services, and leave the real health issues to those that actually belong on a college campus.

This wouldn't be remarkable if it was some run-of-the-mill, insecure-about-his-penis-size douchecopter who's mad at the women he fails to seduce; however, this particular douchecopter is a nursing student who ought to have some basic knowledge about how the female reproductive system works.

In the name of free speech and letting fools remove all doubts as to their foolishness, the school paper let him publish a follow up column.  Worded as a faux-apology, he continued what can only be self-aware trolling of the people he offended the first time around.

I would hope that people as willfully ignorant as he is get weeded out of East Carolina University's nursing program long before they're allowed near a live patient.
