"I played a couple years with a guy who later turned out to be a serial rapist..."

    • Thread Starter

    "...Even he never talked like [Donald Trump]."

    For those not up to date on NFL affairs, you might be wondering about the details of the serial rapist who conducted himself in the locker room with more decorum and grace than Donald Trump, that player's name is Darren Sharper. After drugging and raping at least nine but possibly as many as 16 women in four states, he made a plea deal in which he would serve nine years in prison. Due to the seriousness of the crimes, the federal judge rejected this, insisting that the court would only approve a deal in which Sharper served 15-20 years in prison.

    Food for thought.

    Other professional athletes have taken exception to the term "locker room talk," and I'm glad they have. I've been a part of a number of locker rooms in my adult life, and a few teammates have acted and spoken about women in a way that made me very uncomfortable. Like Kluwe, we've had conversations about virtually every conceivable subject, but most of them about sex. I've never heard anyone say anything as bad as what Donald Trump said. It just doesn't happen. He is an extremely rare specimen in terms of how awfully he speaks of and treats women.
