Locker room talk

    Trump's excuse that it's just "locker room talk" has made me think of all the crude talk I've heard over the years in locker rooms. What sticks out to me is not so much the language itself, but the thrust of it.

    When I hear straight guys talk about their conquests, they always make it sound like women can't wait to get in their pants. Like, she was all over me, and eventually I gave in and took her home. But I've never heard anyone bragging about being rejected, and then having to resort to taking her by force. That would run counter to the narrative of being irresistible.

    It sounds more like Trump is actually proud of being that creepy guy in the sauna or at the bar who can't keep his hands to himself. Until now, I never thought anyone could actually be proud of that.

    My guess is that the sexual dynamic between straight men and women is so different than it is between two men (gay) that it's too difficult to for us to grasp.
