Nope. Thank god.
I don't see how this is missing the point. If anything, it's proving it: straight men are aroused by certain sorts of bodies, so they police the hell out of those. They aren't aroused by other bodies, so they ignore it when they're exposed.
This is the clear double-standard I'm talking about.
All the video was saying is that staring at indecently exposed parts is a normal and expected reaction. How many gay men have gotten in trouble for staring at an exposed buttcrack?
When you reported it to the police, did they ask what you were wearing at the time? If so, then it does. HTH.
Luckily for that girl I wasn't bothered by it for more than a few seconds because y'know, male chest ≠ female chest and I'm not a snowflake.
I'm not "ignoring differences in male and female sexuality" (whatever you claim those to be, as if both sexes didn't show a huge range of variance). If anything, you are ignoring similarities between opposite-sex attraction and same-sex attraction. Gay men are men, too. Why don't we get to blame our lack of self-restraint on your provocative behaviour?
I am not denying gay men the privilege of staring at indecently exposed parts in public.
And why doesn't it? Plenty of other cultures allow women to expose their chests without civilisation going to pieces around them.
Because female chests are an extremely obvious secondary sexual characteristic of women, with significant biological consequences for how men react to them. I'm not arguing that females shouldn't have the right to show cleavage. The only issue is when some feminists react with hostility to the extra attention that cleavage provokes. There's a debate to be had about the appropriate duration and frequency of glances, but let's not pretend that the exposed females bear zero responsibility for the extra attention.
I find men's nipples intensely attractive and I think it's great how willing you all are to display them openly for me. Could you really blame me for giving them a friendly tweak now and them? After all, I'm a man; it's what I'm programmed to do, apparently.
No one is excusing sexual assault.

The fact that men in certain cultures have eroticised them to the point that they are considered too obscene to be displayed in public is...kind of gross when you think about it.
This could only be thought by someone not sexually attracted to breasts.
