A euphemism for a homosexual, especially one who is closeted.

This is coined from the transparent defense of Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho), to charges of disorderly conduct, stemming from his apparent solicitation of an undercover officer, underneath the partition of a restroom stall.

Prior to pleading guilty, Sen. Craig attempted to explain his behavior by claiming that his shoe touched the officer's underneath the partition because he had a "wide stance", when going to the bathroom.

Naivete' term coined by U.S. Senator Larry Craig meaning a commodious position on a toilet seat so as not to have one's trousers fall to the floor, often with shoes of said person assuming the position touching the shoes of those in neighboring stalls. In reality, wide stance simply is 'trolling for homosexual sex in a public toilet.' It is a signal of interest for such activity.
