Dr. Phil has never really seemed like the smartest cookie to me, despite his esteemed title. Instead, he’s just another money hungry asshole who tries to tell everyone else how to live their lives even though his own isn’t all that great. Even if it was great, the idea that some idiot with a few years of schooling and a TV show knows how you should live your life better than you do is absolute bullshit, but some people still buy it.
In any case, it’s become clear that even Dr. Phil ponders the deep questions in life, as he posted to his Twitter account yesterday a very important question:
Basically, Dr. Phil wants to know if you should fuck a woman who’s off her head on too many Mike’s Hard Lemonades (or whatever) because she might say later she didn’t want it and you might be in a pickle. Is it okay? Considering the implication of his question – which, by the way, was deleted VERY soon after (when he must’ve realised what a dickhead thing it was to ask) – the man in question would be sober, while the woman is drunk. We’re not talking about two drunk people going for it, here. 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. I don’t need a doctorate to answer that. IT IS NOT OKAY, ASSHOLE.
I know I’ll have some dudes (and probably some ladies, naturally) come in the comments here and say I’m “overthinking” it or looking too deeply, but considering that there are high profile cases going on in this country right now that rest on this very argument, I’m gonna call bullshit and say no one’s taking it seriously enough. Tell that high school student in Steubenville that it’s “okay” she got gang-raped by a group of boys because she was drunk. Then come back here and let me know how that goes for you.
Dr. Phil sucks, man.
