What Would You Call a Grown Man Who Deliberately Walks into a Room Where Teenaged Girls are in a State of Undress?

I believe that the proper term is "Pervert".
Four women who competed in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant said Donald Trump walked into the dressing room while contestants — some as young as 15 — were changing.

“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,’” said Mariah Billado, the former Miss Vermont Teen USA.

Trump, she recalled, said something like, “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”

Three other women, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of getting engulfed in a media firestorm, also remembered Trump entering the dressing room while girls were changing. Two of them said the girls rushed to cover their bodies, with one calling it “shocking” and “creepy.” The third said she was clothed and introduced herself to Trump.
It's creepy enough that The Donald walked unannounced into the dressing room for adult contestants, but doing that to children? There are places where doing that could get a man arrested and designated as a sex offender.

What you'll now hear from is the Loyal Defenders of The Donald, who will explain that it was No Big Deal™. But if Bill Clinton had done it, those very same people would be calling for his head on a pike.

Because It's OK If You're a Republican. Or rich as fuck.

" I’ve seen it all before.”

EVERY time I have EVER heard that expression I've wanted to punch somebody out. Just the condescension alone is sufficient motive.

When Bill Clinton came clean about Monica Lewinsky, he said he had done it for the worst possible reason, because he could.
Because he could is exactly what Trump said about his own predilection for sexual assault. He thinks it's just ducky.
At least Bill Clinton has the self awareness to know when something is wrong. Also, he's not running for president.
If being a reality TV star(?) was enough to make Trump think sexual assault was OK for him, what would he assume as his prerogative if he were president, especially since he has no fucking clue what a president does to begin with? I really don't want to find out, and luckily, it appears I won't have to.

It's amazing how many republican politicians and pundits just don't seem to grasp the concept of consent. They seem to think that "liberals" are being hypocritical because they listen to "hip hop" (whatever that's supposed to include) or don't want gay sex criminalized. They just lump it all under 'bad'.
