Behold, a golden example of victim shaming with such a graphic reference it's hard to imagine what Don Lemon was thinking during this interview. Here's the short version:
Here's the longer version via Media Matters:
LEMON: Can I ask you this, because -- and please, I don't mean to be crude, OK?
LEMON: Because I know some of you -- and you said this last night, that he -- you lied to him and said "I have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do -- if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife."
LEMON: And you said he made you perform oral sex.
LEMON: You -- you know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn't want to do it.
TARSHIS: Oh. Um, I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn't even enter my mind. Now I wish it would have.
LEMON: Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?
TARSHIS: Yes, that's what I'm thinking you're --
LEMON: As a weapon.
TARSHIS: Yeah, I didn't even think of it.
LEMON: Biting. So, um --
LEMON: Yes. I had to ask. I mean, it is, yeah.
TARSHIS: Yes. No, it didn't cross my mind.
Um, really? Wow, I miss Ted Turner. This would never have happened on his watch. Never.
