We must allow for situational ethics.
This is only wrong if it is a conservative/family values/religious right type that is trying to use the govt to impose moral or religious values.
This is OK if a politically correct type or member of the femanizi left is trying to stop the stereotyping/exploitation of females as sex objects. (Recall the Clinton era battles vs Hooters because they hired females?)
