clearly you are very much against showing skin and the whoever the other person is, is for it. also, he/she looks down on people who do not show skin & you sound like (from the way you have worded your question) you look down on those who do show skin. or maybe you are just angry. I can't say for sure.
But, I will say this. As long as someone else's actions are not doing you any harm, you are no one question them, judge them, etc. I like wearing shorts. I have friends who wear turbans or hijabs. We are tight. It is a very personal decision and no one else has the right to comment on it.
I am not sure if you even mentioned nudity but there are nude beaches in Europe. Other than that, pretty much everywhere in the world, covering genitalia and breasts in public is common courtesy and should stay that way.
other things: cleavage, leg, pits, shoulder, whatever else, is not my problem. Only the one who wears it.
all in all: IT IS ALL SKIN PEOPLE! Some keratin, some melanin, some hair. it's the same everywhere for everyone. get used to looking at it cause it is not going away.
if the state has let you do what you want, you got a choice. enjoy that choice and notice how I said choice which means I can say no to showing skin as much as I can say yes to showing skin.
I dont think slavery and voting (even as metaphors) belong here. They were much bigger issues. This is relatively trivial.
i appreciate the subtle sense of ur reply .
take a look @ ur right . u might find the pic of a women exposing her breasts , in the car . do u ? coz i can . [on this web site] the onlly clothing material is draped on her nipples .
what do u make of this woman ?
what would other people make of this woman ?
now prev. posts emphasized on how a person solely chooses his/her dressing style
what do u think this woman makes of herself ?
does she become modern by exposing her body like that ? or does she enjoy her freedom ? does she provide a full time matinee free show to her obvious spectators ? does she become subject to public display ?
the problem is , when a person dresses lewdly , many people are put to shame rather than jsut them . they might not even realize that .
of course , i m not suggesting that people should go around burqa clad. just appealing for them to cover vital parts of the body .
i owuld also like to know what enjoyment does one feel to cover only her genitals and breast . ?
might as well as remove
somehow nipples seem to infuriate conservation in people when the specimen is literally showing everyhting .
i hope i havent offended u .
once again , appreciated ur subtlety
