    When we say something should be illegal [women showing nipples in public, jaywalking, etc.], we are saying that as a society we want to use costly and limited public resources, i.e. our police, prosecutors, judges, courtrooms, prisons, etc., to deal with a problem.  Must be a really bad thing these crooks are doing.

    For our less serious cultural problems, i.e. a woman doing what a man usually does, a man doing what a woman usually does, I'd like to suggest that we deal with it in some other way than with our criminal justice system.  There can be a cultural taboo against a man wearing a bikini without having authority figures taking action.

    Let our police, judges and courts deal with people showing those private parts used for sexual intercourse and waste excretion; all else, let our cultural norms be our guide.
