I don't tell anyone what to do with their lives. Nice try at the moderator jab, and last I checked this is a privately-owned site.
Every society has rules, sometimes codified, often unspoken, that the members of that society conform to or they are ostracized or otherwise
Social ostracizing and social penalties are not on par with assault. I see people wearing clothing I think is silly or downright dumb pretty often, it
doesn't mean that I can run up to them and pull it off. What repressed society are you hailing from?
Pretending that people have EVER, even in the freest of free societies, been able to disregard societal expectations is disingenuous.
Again, *sigh* freedom of expression does not go as far as allowing assault. You can't just go up to someone and rip their clothing off, I don't care
what sort of society you choose to place yourself in. And that has nothing to do with being disingenuous, that has a lot more to do with common sense
