If it's got massive amounts of torgue or explodes, it's cool

Ty MacDowell organized a parade of women to walk around without shirts on.  Because it's unfair that men get to do that [1] and women are prohibited by society from baring their bosoms.

Ty MacDowell professed surprise that people showed up to watch.  She was amazed and outraged that a whole lot of these gawkers were men.  And upset that these men took pictures.

"I'm amazed and enraged (at) the fact that there's a wall of men watching. A lot of people were taking pictures without even asking," she said. "Even if you're somewhere where people are fully clothed, you should ask."
Now, she's young and perhaps was raised in a very sheltered environment and so does not realize some very basic truths about males.

Males are simple.  We like things with lots of torque.  And explosions.  And boobs.

If a sheltered chick from Maine with odd ideas about how the world works announces a parade of nekkid boobs, the guys are gonna gawk.  And take pictures.

Which is not to say the gawkers are behaving like men.  They are not.   The polite - the manly - thing to do when confronted by a naif who insists on flaunting herself and her ignorance is to nod a 'how-do-you-do' and go about your business without further comment.

Failing to notice stupid behaivior is the only and utterly correct response.

[1] What kind of a humptyville is Portland, Maine that men walk around downtown on a routine basis without shirts on?  I live in a part of the country labeled 'hick' by the sophisticated but I've never seen that.  Y'all in big cities are weird.
