So what is the libertarian view on speedos? Is it a communist plot or what?

always found it interesting how we expect females to wear something miminal, but that we can't or looked down on when we do.

Sigh....another example of the immaturity Americans seems to have slipped into after the 1980s. All this fuss over a type of swim apparel and the male body.
Believe me, nobody really cares about a man in a speedo, those who are making comments are hiding some insecurity or feigning disinterest!

I'm a 48 year old male, and always wear speedos as bathing suits. When I go to the USA, they find that it looks gay. They perfer to wear swimming suits down to their ankles, while the females can look sexy in their bikinis. Why is it that guys can't wear speedos in the States? I think that most Amercicans are over weight and would look stupid in a speedo, so they wear very long and wide bathing suits to hide their blubber. An athletic slim man looks good in a speedo, and floats around in those over sized American swimming suits.

Came across your post by chance. I'm European and really don't get American hang-ups about Speedos. We don't even think twice about wearing Speedos. I bought boardshorts and simply don't find them comfortable for swimming in.

As for the 'ugly American' in your title, we love Americans...just don't send us the ones who feel it's OK to shout and be loud everywhere! Or the war-mongering type either.

American guys learned as boys that if you don't pretend to find the male body as ugly everyone will think you're gay - which was the worst thing a boy could deal with. A lot of American men cna handle ohter guys in speedos but are afraid to say so. I think that women who find speedos shocking tend to have problems with masculinity in general and probably think the men's movement is immature, which is an immature thought in itself. I admire the courage of man in the USA who wear them!

I agree with Joe, March 22, post. I think men's swimwear has gotten too long and baggy, add some color and men look like clowns with no shirts. How about going a little shorter and more fitted. Men in America are extremely homophobic. But what is so sad, is that the more homophobic they become, the more unattractive they try to look. Women are becoming manphobic. They are getting so unreasonable that they are not only shocked by a man in a speedo, but they are now shocked at seeing a man's thigh. This is a pathetic statement of Men (and women) in America.

I am a prowrestler on the indie circuit.I have a large, but firm build. When I lay out at the beach in a speedo I get looks and sometimes people move. When I am at a wrestling eventin my wrestling trunks, women cheer me and even hit on mesometimes.
