There's tons of examples of dudes in bands who could strut around with no shirt and make the ladies swoon and still be totally credible and recognized for their talent. Pretty much every famous rock frontman fits that description, and we're all totally cool with that.
Personally I think a girl should be allowed to go onstage looking as sexy as she damn well pleases and we should all man up and listen to the damn music regardless instead of just turning into horny apes. Or failing that, which is understandable sometimes, at least take responsibility for it ourselves and not blame it on the girl.
