124. Clothes is both publicly expressive and privately symbolic, connoting identity in a particular ethnic
group. Limiting the state of clothing of nudists is no less restrictive than prohibiting any other cultural group from
wearing the clothing unique to their group. Preventing nudists from going naked is comparable to preventing a

prohibited.191 Therefore, only nudity is not illegal except where there are special laws that prohibit it.
Most laws forbid merely lewd actions, not nudity per se; and there's actually no universal legal prohibition
against nudity on public land.

They're the same as guys." 198 Physical differences among the races don't justify discrimination, and neither
should physical differences between the genders.
131. Laws requiring girls to cover their breasts are not justified by claims that women's bodies are
significantly distinct from men's; nor by erroneous claims that breasts are sex organs; nor by the fact that breasts
may play a part in sex or sex play; nor by the fact that breasts are notable secondary sex characteristics.
It can't be argued that girls have breasts and men do not, because both do; nor can it be claimed that
