Umm it's not that wierd seeing as this was ancient times and that was normal for them.

Is it really worthy of a thread of it's own?

I think that you're not looking at it in its historical context; people were a lot more comfortable with their bodies and nudeness in general at the time. It's today's culture which is why people feel inferiority (to a greater extent, of course there was some back then) and more self-consciousness about themselves.

I learned that that was the way to make absolutely certain no women would participate?
