Whoopi Goldberg Says "Don't Get Poop-Faced" To Avoid Rape

Uh, OK.

The View

The ladies of The View today tackled James Taranto's controversial Wall Street Journal column from Monday, "Drunkenness and Double Standards."

The column, which angered so many that it resulted in a petition to fire Taranto, has been described as victim-blaming by comparing rape to a "collision" between two drunk drivers.

But when it was brought up on The View, Whoopi Goldberg seemed to side with the columnist, and received big applause from the audience.

"My opinion is, if you don't want this kind of attention, don't get poop-faced," she said. "Do not get poop-faced. Do not become so drunk you don't know what is happening. When you say, 'X, Y, Z happened,' you have no way of proving it. So both parties, if you don't want the agitation, do not become so drunk you can't figure out what the hell you're doing."

Jenny McCarthy took mostly an opposite standpoint:

"I think no means no, period, no matter where you're at," she said, though failed to point out "that 'not yes' also means no," as Mediaite noted. McCarthy added that, "In college, I went to so many after parties, that does not mean I'm giving an OK to have sex."

Sherri Shepherd asked, if "two people are so inebriated and neither one of them — both of them are waking up surprised or remorseful, how does the guy get to say she said no, because he's not even in his right mind as well?"

In response, Barbara Walters made it awkward for everyone.

"[T]he point is that he supposedly, because of the different sexes, because he's the one who is being the perpetrator, or penetrator, OK?" she said.
