Controversy or conversation
A rep for Dr. Phil says the quote was put out there to incite a conversation consent and drunk sex and to get people thinking. While it may have upset people because its sexual assault, the fact of the matter is there is a portion of the population that thinks there is nothing wrong with having sex with a drunk female.
“ It was a poll question, not a statement or a joke. As he maintained over many years, Dr. Phil believes that the position of those incapacitated in any fashion; be it drug, alcohol, age or mental illness cannot and do not have the capacity to give their consent to anything. This was a research post and Dr. Phil deleted it the second we saw it. It was clearly ill-advised. We sincerely apologize that it suggested anything other than what was intended, data gathering. As you can imagine, Dr. Phil is very upset this happened.”
