While watching the "begging segment" of the latest Mr Deity, there was a jarring moment in Brian Dalton's thinly veiled criticism of PZ Myers's decision to air allegations against Michael Shermer. Myers was faced with a difficult choice between the possibility of slandering an innocent man and not warning his community of a predator in its midst. While not sure if I agree with Dalton (I can see flaws in that argument), that's not the bit I found really objectionable. No, the thing that doesn't sit well with me is the transparent and glib victim blaming in the wine glass bit.
There is of course the possibility of drink substitution: a double shot instead of a single shot; a full strength beer instead of a low alcohol beer; spiking a strongly flavoured drink with vodka or even straight alcohol. All these tactics have been used by arseholes trying to get women drunk. There is, of course, also the use of other drugs slipped into drinks as well. Dalton seems not to have taken these possibilities into account.
Furthermore, if Brian Dalton doesn't realise that people can be manipulated into doing things they don't want to do or without being aware that they are doing them, perhaps he should have a chat with someone who has spent time studying mentalists, con-artists and "psychics" about how they manipulate people's behaviour. Perhaps he could ask his good friend Michael Shermer, who has studied these things extensively. Dalton's bit of simply declining an offer from a passing waiter is quite disingenuous.
Lastly, even if you don't deliberately ply someone with alcohol in order to have sex with them, there's some point of inebriation after which they are not able to give genuine consent. If you're aware that they are so inebriated that they can't give reasonable consent, you shouldn't be doing anything except trying to sober them up or protecting them from sexual predators rather than being one yourself.
If you're taking advantage of drunk people, you don't have "game". You have a broken moral compass. You are not a "player". You are a rapist.
Update: So Brian Dalton has posted a new video saying he wasn't blaming the victim. Apparently he was just making fun of the idea that someone can be manipulated into consuming more alcohol than they want to or know they have... or something. He's still tone deaf and wrong.
