More Like Classroom Talk

I’ve already stated, in no uncertain terms, that Trump’s crass conversation about women — what he refers to as his “locker-room talk” — was depraved and inexcusable. But I have to confess that I’m a little bit incredulous to the people I’ve been seeing on Twitter who make as if comments like those are actually not locker-room talk; as if they’re in fact abnormal or something. I find that extremely naive.

Just today I was a substitute at the local high school, where right there in the classroom I had to reprimand a group of otherwise decent girls for singing Afroman’s “Colt 45” word-for-word for all to hear. I would say look it up, but you probably shouldn’t. Trump’s remarks are tame by comparison.

There’s Twitter world, and then there’s the real world.
