  • Samanthy – yes, rape is nonconsensual sex, but that consent has to be knowingly given in a person’s right mind. drunk consent is not necessarily consent. not saying no is not consent. that’s why it’s illegal for people under 18 to have sex – because they’re not considered mature enough in the eyes of the law to properly consent.

    BUT and i don’t mean to be a dr. phil apologist or anything, but is it possible that he’s doing a show/segment on this and isn’t just asking people if they think it’s ok or not, but is trying to get a perspective on what his audience thinks is ok or not before they even get to the show?

      THIS.
      He does it a lot on his show; in-audience-polls, pre-show surverys etc. He knows it is wrong; he just wants to see who doesn’t agree, so he can go into that on his show.

  • I almost feel like you are suggesting that no drunk woman has ever genuinely wanted to have sex with a sober man. Sometimes people actually do make it very clear what they want to do and without coercing.

    • I don’t see her suggesting that. Here’s what her argument is: “He’s asking if a WOMAN is drunk, can you fuck her and basically get away with it if she says later that it wasn’t consensual.” It’s about consent, not about being drunk. That’s what I got out of it.

  • This is a serious post, and I am glad you wrote it, so I hope you understand when I say thank you for throwing Mike’s Hard Lemonades in there. Took me back.

  • LOVE this site. So funny! You could have your own TV show like TMZ. Except it wouldn’t be s*** like theirs.

    Keep it up!
