Now ive thought about it for a moment, are they saying that what a women wears, makes her a sexual target?
I mean for years its been about the fact women are free to wear what they like, and that its men who need to grow up or simply treat them with respect. Which is fine. Have i lost something in the past 6 months?
Why do i feel that soon enough there will be rules regarding what women wear on the beach again. How is this progessing anything?

I reckon there would be plenty of photos of blokes doing bottom turns, especially if it's a late drop. I don't think it is fair enough, the photographers are just doing their job. If the chicks don't want to be shot with their bums hanging out don't wear a skimpy bikini in front of thousands of viewers.

This whole notion of protecting women from being objectified is rediculous, they're the ones wearing stuff all down the beach, they're the ones leaving nothing to the imagination and instagram is full of women getting photos of themselves with their butts hanging out.

At the Spit on the Gold Coast I see chicks all the time posing in front of expensive looking cameras, and they all like getting photos of their bum.

I think its just common sense, every one can wear what they want, but if you feel uncomfortable with cameras watching/recording you, then wear shorts or a wet suit
or get a dirtbike no cameras out there.
The world is going MAD

Dave Chappelle has the best take on this.

If the goods aren't for sale, don't stick them in the shop window.
