Given that Free Republic is not a Socialist site that pretends to enforce jackbooted 'equality' in every thread, there will naturally be some threads which appeal more to some than others. The Fox News article which this thread is derived from is entirely and exclusively pertaining to ladies' swimsuits. It's an article devoted to assisting ladies in selecting the proper suit for their body type, and FReeper men, being legendary for their kindness, benevolence and fashion sense to name but a few virtues, are of course delighted to assist in this worthy cause. Nowhere in the article are men's suits addressed. Therefore, it's to be expected that the responding posts in this thread are also addressing the essential topic of ladies' swimsuits.
That being said, Free Republic, being an equal-opportunity Capitalist-oriented site, offers you an equal opportunity to create your own thread pertaining to men's swimsuits if you so desire.
Just answering :-)
