During Sunday night’s presidential debate, Donald Trump said his infamous comments about sexually assaulting women were just “locker room talk,” encouraging viewers to dismiss the tapes as just a normal thing guys do. But now, men who actually use locker rooms are clarifying that they don’t, in fact, discuss violence against women while they’re preparing for a sports game.
Basketball players CJ McCollum and Kendall Marshall took to Twitter during the debate to push back against Trump’s defense:
Football player Chris Conley added that throughout his tenure as an athlete, he’s never once heard teammates make crude comments:
But you don’t have to be a professional athlete to know about what goes on in men’s locker rooms. Other guys are speaking out as well to ensure that they, too, think Trump’s comments are inappropriate and not just “guy talk.”
So yeah, we’re pretty sure that most men don’t brag about committing crimes while they’re just trying to get changed pre- or post-workout.
