Actually my post was based upon how a person and societies define their morals. There are those that believe it is fine to walk around, completely unclothed in certain areas places, such as a clothing optional community. Now compare that to the way society viewed the way to dress, by both men and women's standards, at the turn of the twentieth century.
To say that moral values have not become much more relaxed, in this way, over the last one-hundred years is simply uneducated.
This is absolutely everything to do about morals, both individual and social. To say otherwise is, without question, ignorant.
Saying you believe it is okay to display one's breasts in public is neither wrong nor right, but don't be naive enough to claim that set of morals is as high as those saying a lady should not. Doing so is displaying nothing but a poor education.
As others have already stated, God did not invent Levis, but that doesn't mean our society finds it okay to walk around without pants.
I believe that if you were to walk into a synagogue, where it is expected your head be covered, you should respect the belief and cover your head, this is regardless of your personal faith.
As such, if you are within a community where there is a common belief to cover your breasts, you should do so. To board a plane, and whip them out, is extremely impolite and shows a huge lack of respect of one's own body. She is claiming she was embarrassed by the airlines by being asked to cover up, but what about the photos now circulating? Can you imagine that your friends, family, neighbors are viewing you on the net or store shelves? Some people would not care at all; others, though, would be so embarrassed as to never want to face anyone again. Just something to keep in mind before you expose yourself in public.
