Jaded semi-bitchy commentary on a thread topic that persistently resurfaces:
1. Older guys (pretty much anyone who was alive during the JFK administration and older) don't particularly have any hangups about lockerroom nudity. This had largely to do with schools, public gyms and swimming pools, and YMCA's having gender segregated swimming times and nude swimming, and a general lack of concern about gym/steamroom creepers checking out everyone's junk.
The few who did were probably ostracized if not smacked down for their inappropriate YCYL behaviour.
2. Guys who grew up during the Carter and Reagan administrations have few hangups, but generally like to keep some amount of modesty, and generally use the locker room for its intended purpose - change clothing, shower, GTFO... unlike the older dudes who seem to linger around with their junk hanging out or peeking out from underneath their massive FUPAs.
Granted, 80% of these old guys have no sexually predatory designs on anyone, they just seem to think that the locker room is a place to hang out nude and play 3-hour rounds of Pinochle or do the NY Times crossword, or discuss their never-ending array of ailments with guys of any age who are in earshot.
3. College-aged guys and younger (typically too young to really remember the Clinton administration or pre-TSA air travel) are TOTALLY convinced that 95% of the guys in the gym locker room are looking for the first excuse to anally rape them, and so they cover up from tit to toe with the biggest beach towel they can buy, while awkwardly shuffling into their baggy boxers and jeans at a speed that would cripple all but the most flexible gymnasts.
Which elicits LULZ from the older guys who are mostly straight, and perhaps some LULZ from the gay older guys who just might not find every chicken that stumbles into the locker room to be that appetizing.
.... I think that about covers it, no?
