(Opposing Views)   In his latest effort to reduce the wow-factor associated with having a "Dr." in front of one's name, Dr. Phil asks: Is it cool to have sex with a drunk chick?   (opposingviews.com ) divider line

waltb555: Egoy3k:  I would love to have you give me ONE example of Dr. Phil ever doing any of the things you mention in your reply. I have been watching his show for several years and I have NEVER seen him recommend that someone not seek professional help, in fact, he often refers his guests to professionals and pays for it himself. I don't think you are getting your information from watching the show but from other peoples opinions. Give me one example of flawed methodology or bad information you have witnessed on the show. I seriously doubt you can do it because I think you have never watched the show.


How about telling parents how to stop their children from growing up to be gay?

There is your one example.

Mr.Poops: At least when you're sober you remember every detail of sex too, even if it's the worst sex -- at least you remember it.


Which is a good argument FOR drunken sex.

Nurglitch: Why is it so hard for men not to rape people?


Well...it IS a lot of fun. It's a guilty pleasure for guys. Like laughing at Garfield comics.

Egoy3k : OK, I'll give you that one. I find that advice rather disturbing. I guess the truth lies somewhere in the middle. He gives good advice and sometimes bad advice. I'm not perfect either. But I have seen him do a lot of good as well. So I'll watch his show and you won't. 'Nuff said.

Are you trying to say that the Doctor's real name is Phil??

The guy is shady as fark and no better than Maury or Jerry Springer.

Dr. Phil is anti-breastfeeding.  (He's covered the issue a few times.  He also thinks of breastfeeding as sexual.  He pushes the idea that breastfeeding is weird and unnatural.  )
When he did an episode about breastfeeding he picked a 'normal' mom and family to represent the formula side.  For the pro-breastfeeding side he picked a woman who was still breastfeeding her 7 year old and 5 year old.  Not much of a debate if you reject having knowledgeable breastfeeding advocates and instead cherry-pick a 'freak'.
Dr. ORDON: I know--I know I was never breast-fed. Maybe that's why I went into breast surgery. I...
Dr. PHIL: Yeah.
Dr. MASTERSON: My...
Dr. PHIL : Well, I wasn't either, and I'm glad now.

(Formula vs. Milk, do what you want.  I don't care.  I take issue with Dr. Phil stacking the deck heavily in favor of one side)

Dr. Phil did something similar when he did a show on Public School vs. Homeschool.  He cherry-picked the weirdest 'radical unschooler' homeschool family he could find.  I know this because there were _a lot_ of nice, normal homeschooling families that volunteered to be the guest, but were rejected for lack of drama potential.  Same song & dance as the breastfeeding episode.

Dr. Phil doesn't help or inform.  It's a sideshow.

The reason for all the outrage is that all the outraged people have no sensible answer to the question. Their outrage tries (and often succeeds) in stifling the question.

OMFG you people are all missing the point!  Discussion of this should not be allowed, period!

that's how you make a problem go away.
