Not in my locker room!

Sorry to see that this year’s presidential politics keeps getting more bizarre, and now, even more immoral.  But with Donald Trump’s lewd comments with Billy Bush on a released video tape being dismissed as “locker room” comments, I cannot hold back.  I have been in many locker rooms at different levels of sports…both as a competitor, and as a reporter and I have NEVER heard comments like that.  Not ever.  And, if someone was heading down that obscene road, it was quickly handled and stopped.  Just so you know.

Just read your blog, Tom ("Not in my locker room!") and want to stand up and cheer! The dismissal of Trump's comments as "locker room talk" is demeaning to men, for heaven's sake, not only to women. Thank you for your comments, informed by years of being in locker rooms.

Sorry Tom but I call baloney on you. If you never heard such talk then you never listened and even your article mentions it would have been stopped which means it did occur. You may not personally say such things but it happens all the time and I bet it even happens in the women's locker rooms as well. It is not an excuse but shows that it is an attack to misdirect the people from real issues.
