Nothing to see here

I am both perplexed and amused by the recent brouhaha over nearly naked baristas. With the amount of violence available via TV, movies and video games, I cannot see the threat of the sight of partial nudity.

While a person needs to have their individual privacy respected, I have never seen a news report stating that a criminal felt compelled to rob a bank or shoot up a school because she or he caught a glimpse of bare skin. What is more a part of your usual day, shootings, stabbings, drownings, hangings, crime of all sorts, vampires, kidnappings or a bit of nudity?

What? You take a shower or bathe with your clothes on?
