"Name me ONE law that controls women's sexuality or appearance. As far as I can tell, the only law is complete public nudity and that applies to both men and women equally."

I'll bite because this one's easy, then I think I'm gonna have to let you troll on:

Sections 210, 212, and 213 of the Criminal Code of Canada is all you should need.

To cut you off at the pass, you're right, it doesn't specify WOMEN. But I think we're both mature enough to know for whom those laws were written, even though in all our modern PC'ness we've had the forethought to remove references to gender.

But luckily there are some great historical examples of laws that didn't even pretend to be genderless. Say, Ontario's Female Refuges Act which has been blessedly off the books for years.
