It isn’t actually relevant that your wife is totally cool with you finding Jessica Alba hot.
It isn’t actually relevant that your wife thinks Brad Pitt is hot.
It isn’t actually relevant that you don’t mind your wife finding Brad Pitt hot.
It isn’t actually relevant that “most guys think [celebrity X] is hot”.
It isn’t actually relevant that “men naturally look at attractive women” (it’s also a bullshit evo-psych excuse for not being decent human beings!)
It isn’t actually relevant that heaps of other Manly Males talk about which celebrity women they wish they could fuck with no actual consideration given to whether those women would ever want to fuck them.
It also isn’t about being “light-hearted” and it’s not about “having a sense of humour”.
It is about the Prime Minister of New Zealand going on a radio show hosted by a basically unapologetic violent abuser in order to make himself look more “ordinary” by reinforcing the idea that women are valuable for being young and hot and sexually available.
Not sure why that needed explaining, but there you go.
