Indeed!

Girlfriend wants to point out that for some, walking around topless is difficult not due to social constraints but simple physical inconvenience. So no mandatory topless laws when I become dictator, I guess?

A fair point. Also, I feel if all women were mandated to go about topless, the straight male population would have a hard time getting anything done.

I'd say that has more to do with the social norms the straight male population was brought up with. If women walking around topless was a matter of course it wouldn't be a big deal to start with. It's only when going around topless is rare, forbidden, or sensational that it can cause a stir.

Well, I was assuming the mandate would take effect in the US, where the social norm is the boobs == naughty, so that's where I was coming from. Sure, if one looks at those National Geographic bits about cultures where the ladies walk about topless and no one bats an eye, it's clear that it's all about what you're used to/brought up with.
