Some societies of anthropomorphized animals have their own gender-based double standard dictating who is allowed to wear what clothes. The most common result is the females being held to a higher standard of dress than the males; which makes less sense when you realize males have a bit more to hide from the waist down (though NonHumansLackAttributes is or at least should be in effect here). (In the shirtless male version of this trope, however, it ''does'' make more sense for the males to be able to be shirtless, while females are required to cover up, for obvious reasons.) One possible answer could be that once one is a funny animal, it's less about modesty and more about accessorizing. If you overthink it, this does mean females are essentially wearing a redundant layer of clothes if you assume FurIsClothing.

At the base of this, it's down to social conditioning in most Western societies: a "naked" female character is seen as much more sexual/lewd than "naked" male character even though nothing which counts as actual nudity is on show in either case. Also, to certain extent our reactions are codified by expectations of a female character wearing something that covers at the very least her bottom half where breasts aren't a concern due to [[UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeofAnimation silent]] through [[GoldenAgeofAnimation golden]] age animation setting that bar through a certain pair of mice.

* TheBlockbusterBuster notes that ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks: The Squeakquel'' [[AvertedTrope Averts]] this trope with [[DistaffCounterpart the Chipettes]], which he finds this disturbing. He censors them until they put clothes on.

At the base of this, it's down to social conditioning in most Western societies and to have a top half or entirely "naked" female character is incredibly more lewd than a lower half "naked" character of either gender even though nothing which counts as actual nudity is on show in either case. What does this? Due to expectations both biological and societal, a certain pair of SecondarySexualCharacteristics set off warnings in our brains and mess with our perceptions whereas a lack of attributes can smooth over this, pun somewhat intended. Also, to certain extent our reactions are codified by expectations of a female character wearing something that covers at the very least her bottom half where breasts aren't a concern due to [[SilentAgeofAnimation silent]] through [[GoldenAgeofAnimation golden]] age animation setting that bar through a certain pair of mice.
