Another hypothetical question

Why is it that men with substantially larger boobage than myself can walk around topless, yet if I did it, it would be seen as indecent?

That's not really a hypothetical question. I changed the way I asked it and the title no longer makes sense. Oops.

This has come up before...  along the same lines as why women are comfortable about wearing a skimpy bikini yet scream if someone catches them in their bra and pants...

Yeah I can compare them to my mental image of Sarah

There's no specific law that makes it illegal for a woman to walk around topless. There's the offense of Outraging Public Decency (details here) which can include almost anything:

"Indecency is not confined to sexual indecency: indeed it is difficult to
find any limit short of saying that it includes anything which an
ordinary decent man or woman would find to be shocking, disgusting
and revolting."

I doubt I'd find your boobage shocking, disgusting or revolting. Although I'm not sure I'm an ordinary decent man!

Ok, let's repharse that to take focus away from my boobage to a random, unnamed woman...

I think if a woman did choose to go topless, she'd soon be attracting attention from people who would be outraged at her... display.

Moobs are seem as the opposite of sexually exciting so its a different sort of offense

What Maddy said, it's about the sexualisation bit. (Did I just make up a word?)

Only if you can drill wood with it

HORRIBLE

I think sometimes it's hard what's 'respectable'. For me - if i'm going out where others will see me  -i'll not wear a bikini but if it's in the privacy of my garden - i would.... but others in my local area do not feel the same!

If you go into public parks in Scandinavia and Germany you'll see women sunbathing topless. We're too prudish about it here. They're just lumps of fat for feeding babies, after all.

"If you go into public parks in Scandinavia and Germany you'll see women sunbathing topless."

This was something that struck me when I arrived in Germany as a young squaddie many years ago. It was a hot summer day and we decided to sunbathe at the local pond. Most the locals were stark naked so we did likewise to avoid sticking out (fnar fnar). There were lots of "lumps of fat for feeding babies" on view and I had to keep rolling over onto my front. The result was a badly sunburnt arse. I could hardly sit down for several days afterwards.

I was being a little facetious about breasts, which are of course beautiful things... but they're perfectly natural. I can understand that women would fear being ogled, but I guess that happens in other places too.

The main purpose of breasts, though, is to be a behaviour control mechanism. Just point them at your bloke and he'll do whatever he's told.
