Old dudes are kinda creepy like that.
Perfect example, last night I was at my parents house, and out of the blue, my dad says
"Jodie Fosters gay. What a waste."
"She's really beautiful."
"It's a waste for a pretty girl to be a lesbian."
"Probably not for her or her partner dad. What are you saying?"
As soon as he turned 70, weird shit about women's appearence started coming out of his mouth randomly.
Guys hit that point and it's like they are going for the last hurrah in their minds.
