In Response to Re: Dr. Phil tweet controversy:
How is he supposed to collect data on what society thinks & its values are, if he can't post a question to get a response?
While the answer to his tweet - about whether it's OK to have sex with someone who's drunk - might seem incredibly obvious, you'd be very surprised as to what our society thinks these days!
Last month, breaking news from a neighboring middleclass town, was that a 22 year old newbie teacher has been arrested, for having a sexual relationship with one of her students. The teacher was only out of that same school 4 years for college, and happens to be pretty. Despite how close she is in age to the students, and her lack of extensive experience with students, she was approved to do at-home tutoring over the summer, and that's when this allegedly happened.
When the story broke, I read the reader comments online, and was stunned that 80% of them thought that because she was young & "hot", what she did was either OK, excusable & not a criminal matter, or even something the boy's buddies must envy. And we're talking about feedback from men & women!

Exactly, people's views are not always, heck hardly ever what you expect.. look at the college town here in Ohio that was split down the middle on the girl who got so drunk at a party that she was barely conscious and some football players took advantage.. and though they went to trial and were convicted, many people felt it was her fault..
