Hey, Dr. Phil, You're a Moron!

8/21/2013 9:00 AM PDT, by Sarah Taylor
So hey. Here's a question for you, one that you can take seriously, or even say, "WTF, what kind of question even IS this?" But keep in mind that this is a real thing that Dr. Phil actually posed to his followers on Twitter. Don't believe it? Well, that's OK. The tweet has been pulled down, but as you know, everything on the internet lives forever and ever and ever, much like the parasites that grow in the toilets of man. 

Here it is: 
Wait a damn second, now, Dr. Phil. No. It is absolutely not OK to have sex with a girl when she's drunk because hey -- it's called impairment. And a lot of times when people are impaired, they don't make the same decisions that they might normally make when they're sober. What kind of question even is that? Why would you even think it's OK to wonder about something like that? 

On the flip side, people are arguing that just because you're drunk doesn't mean you're unable to give consent to have sex. It's a double-edged sword, but the bottom line is that it's a stupid question to even ask, and people more often than not get themselves into trouble with this kind of thing. 

Also, a rep for the doc said that it totally wasn't taken the way it was intended:

"This tweet was intended to evoke discussion leading into a very serious show topic. It was not intended to be taken lightly. It's based upon a recent news story, hence the #teenaccused label." 

"This tweet was intended to evoke discussion." No, this tweet was intended to stir the pot, and it's a cheap way to do it.

Thoughts? Aside from the, you know, rational ones that his question was a real, real dumb question?

Of course it's immoral to have sex with a girl when she's too drunk from booze.

That's why I switched to using chloroform long ago. I'm classy and decent like that.

Obs, I just figured a while ago to stop being such a scumbag and try to be more classy.

BTW, is anyone else's connection to Pornhub at work slow today?

Exactly, Dr. Phil was way out of line. Thank goodness cooler heads prevail in here with the upper crust of society such as ourselves.

I think it is an OK question to try to bring attention to the fact that there are PLENTY of guys who feel it is absolutely OK -- who don't see anything wrong with "getting a chick drunk" then "having sex" (a.k.a. date rape). I would be that 20-30% of guys between 17 and 26 think that it's ok. I hope this does bring attention to the statistics.

I can't take that tweet seriously.

How drunk is too drunk? If she has a couple glasses of wine is it ok then? if she appears a bit tipsy is it a felony? Do we need to write laws that dictate a BAC of women in order for their "yes" to really mean yes?

While women don't ever deserved to be raped, agreeing to something when you're a bit blitzed falls into the category of personal responsibility.

Oh Jesus, here we go...

I just can't with the idiots who write for this site, with your condescending, self-righteous, "DO BETTER, DR. PHIL." Why don't you DO BETTER, Sarah, and get a real job in journalism?

Why on earth wouldn't it be okay to have sex with someone who was drunk???? It's how Sarah's parents conceived her. And it's the only way Sarah's man can screw her. I suppose in college, Sarah was the girl who cried rape when a guy tried to feel her up after she stumbled sloppily into her dorm room. I can't believe you are actually criticizing Dr. Phil, considering that many MANY hook ups are facilitated by alcohol. It's retarded feminist-types like you, Sarah, who try to make everything so much more than it is (case-and-point, this entire website).

It was a straight question to get an honest answer from the audience. It was neither positive or negative charged. To get a fiable statistic of what a group of people think, you can't subject them to your own view of the world.
