Inside the mens' locker room: Male athletes are now revealing what really goes on.

At yesterday’s debate, Donald Trump firmly denied that the leaked video in which he can be heard instructing Access Hollywood host Billy Bush to “grab women by the pussy” constituted sexual assault.

Instead, his response took a predictable “boys-will-be-boys” approach, culminating in his dismissal of the comments as “locker room talk”.

The implication, of course, is that Trump’s comments aren’t offensive, or even particularly bad, in the scheme of things that men say to each other about women when they’re alone.

Apparently, you’d hear worse in any locker room.

Luckily, there are a lot of people who’ve actually experienced the inside of a locker room and are prepared to set Trump straight.

American male athletes have taken to Twitter to protest Trump’s comments, making it very clear that grabbing women “by the pussy” does not constitute normal “locker room talk”.
