What utter rubbish! Ive lived the majority of my life in the UK and have never seen anyone male or female naked in supermarkets or in the street! What are you talking about? Would be really interested if you could tell me where you've seen this. We do have topless bathing in Europe although they are more reserved in the US, I ,as a woman don't have a problem with it nor do I mind Playboy or similar magazines or pornography, I know its not every ones taste but its called freedom, something you don't seem to grasp. Why can't muslims control them selves or as someone suggested take a cold shower! To me it seems ridiculous to be covered up in the hottest countries in the world,mind you it is only the women the men seem quite comfortable in their attire. Also a bit fed up with the 'holyier than thou' attitude from muslim women just because they dress conservateivly or covered from top to toe they somehow think they are better human beings, well it doesnt work like that , it takes more than saying your religious or dressing discreatly to make someone a good person! When are you going to drag yourselves into the 21st century?
