So, the first question is:
Why is any outfit offensive?
The answer usually given is "it exposes nipples/breasts/vaginas/penises/whatever too much".
The next question is "OK, so why is that offensive?"
The answer becomes "Well, those things shouldn't be shown in public // Those parts are private // Children shouldn't be seeing those things at their age"
OK, so why shouldn't they be shown? Why shouldn't children see them? Can you back that up with any evidence that it's going to hurt children?
I haven't, and am unlikely to see any convincing evidence that there is any objective, pragmatic reason to avoid public nudity, except for appeals to religion. And enforcement of a dress code for that reason amounts to enforcing religious law.
So, some people are offended by nudity, big whoop! I am offended by christian symbolism, as I find it to be a barbaric religion, with a lot to answer for. That doesn't mean that people should ban its display on jewellery and the like. The solution comes in two parts:
1. Ignore it.
2. Look the other way, if you can't handle it.
The sooner we realise the arbitrariness of society's standards of sexuality and such, the better off we are.
