So, you're both right and you're both wrong.
Keep in mind that if the engine is flooded, it's not like the cylinder is full of gas, it's just that the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder is too rich to ignite. Clearing out the engine leans out the mixture enough so it can burn (and it also may help dry off a wet spark plug electrode and cool down the cylinder a bit.) This is why a hot start button is so important on these types of bikes. Why all 4-strokes aren't equipped with them is a mystery to me.
