and, frankly, i think it's sexxist saying no bare boobs, yet bare male chests are allowed. the argument goes that since men don't have mammary glands, this is some how okay, yet women are clearly excited over shirtless pictures of men or we wouldn't have women posting with avatars of shirtless Connor Trineer. or posting images of bare chested hunks. slag off Hermiod's whinging all you want, but he's right that there is a double-standard there.
Well it is fairly common to see shirtless men in everyday situations. Especially in the summer.

Nobody bats an eyelid when a guy walks around topless, this gender discrepancy is nothing more than cultural conditioning.

That doesn't make it right, but it does make it understandable.
