I'm trying to understand. It's been my opinion for some time that Dr. Phil is a menace to society, but what's happening here is blowing my mind. If I was in this audience, I would be on my feet screaming.
"Hey asshole, you aren't talking about sex. You're talking about rape."
When you feel that women are things to go after and sex is something you take, that is rape. When you are so calculating that you drink seltzer to appear drunk and keep a woman drinking so she can't "sober up" and realize she wants to go home-- that is rape.
It's an episode called "Out of control male egos" and Dr. Phil refers to this man as a "Casanova" -- STOP IT. This man is not a gift to women, he's a threat. Even if he's not coercing sex, he is a serial objectifier. In the first few moments of this video he lays out 3 points:
"Fucking" is a commodity second only to water.
Men should be like cavemen: "Grab that woman off the street, drag her back to your lair."
"Women ultimately only care about a man's ability to pay and his ability to make love to her."
As you can imagine, with this being on YouTube there are some charming comments...
I WOULD RATHER FUCK A GIRLS BRAINS OUT THEN CHIT CHAT WITH HER. MORE POWER TO THOSE DUDES!
This is why shows like this aren't in "good fun". Because attitudes like this aren't rare. They are prevalent and dangerous. Giving these freaks a public appearance on Phil (I refuse to call him doctor anymore) just reinforces some idea that this attitude about women is "normal" or "harmless."
And hey-- I thought Phil was a guy who took people to task with his "straight talk"?? Yet this topic is a big joke. Besides the obvious bad press for women, this show is insulting to men too. By treating this guy as a "Casanova" with a big ego, they miss the point. All guys want confidence and want romantic game -- but I don't know many guys who would want to be like this jackass.
Wanting to screw anything that moves (and keeping a spreadsheet about it) has nothing to do with biology and everything to do with being a juvenile-minded asshole.
At one point, the crew puts the "Casanova cam" on him and sends him into "the lion's den" cause women are wild animals -- get it?
But it turned out to be great because they interviewed the women he hit on later. And they said, "NO I did NOT appreciate it when this strange man came up behind me and tried to touch me."
How about putting THESE WOMEN on the show, Phil? Why not have a dialogue about street harassment, the culture of objectification and the dangers of men like this who think as "cavemen" and feel that they can trick women into their bed and take 'what's theirs.'
