特朗普的更衣室谈话

最近,美国公布出多段美国共和党总统候选人特朗普在2005年接受采访时的音频,期间他与节目主持人私下谈论自己与一名已婚女性关系,发表了很多歧视女性的言论。而面对媒体的狂轰滥炸,特朗普只得多次强调,这些粗鄙的言论只不过是一些“更衣室谈话”。

特朗普的“更衣室谈话”

“I don't think you understood what was said. This was locker room talk,” Trump said. “I'm not proud of it. I apologized to my family. I apologized to the American people. Certainly, I'm not proud of it, but this is locker room talk.”
特朗普说:“你没明白怎么回事。这就是更衣室谈话。我很惭愧,我向家人道歉,向美国人民道歉。我当然很惭愧,但这就是更衣室谈话。”

Locker-room talk is the crude, vulgar, offensive and often sexual trade of comments guys pass to each other, usually in high school locker rooms. Exists solely for the purpose of male comedy and is not meant to be taken seriously.
“更衣室谈话”指的是男性之间粗鲁、低俗、具有冒犯性、通常含有性意味的交谈内容。这种谈话经常发生在高中的更衣室里。“更衣室谈话”只是男性之间的说笑,不应当真。

然而,特朗普的辩解又触怒了体育界人士。

Unsurprisingly, professional athletes grew irate at the insinuation that similar lewd remarks were commonplace in men's locker rooms.
不出所料,职业运动员们对此感到气愤,因为这暗讽类似的下流用于在运动员的更衣室很常见。

As an athlete, I've been in locker rooms my entire adult life and uh, that's not locker room talk.
“作为一名运动员,我长大后经常呆在更衣室里,那并不是更衣室谈话。”
