Returning to the "no universal ethics" theme (he's got legs and knows how to use them)

In previous posts, I have stated that "we are unsuccessful when we try to set up standards of ethics that apply to all people on earth."

That particular quote comes from a post that discusses widely varying views on Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles cop who killed several people because he believed that "[t]he tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." I've also discussed the school in Guin, Alabama that prohibits its students from dancing or watching movies, and the forthcoming birth certificates in Germany that allow parents to select a sex of "blank" (other than male or female).

These examples are everywhere, and Iuri Tarabanov provided us with another one.

A man in skirt may be arrested in Italy, for example. Of course it is clear, what men in skirts are in question, but what should the Scotch, which revere their traditions, do in Italy?
