The problem is that you can't easily distinguish some forms of antisocial eccentricity from California political movements.

"Dude, it ain't fear. We just don't want to see your junk."

That strikes me as a sort of self-correcting problem. I can't imagine the climate of Boise, even in May, is terrifically conducive to strolling about in the all together.

Of course in California you never know if it isn't in fact antisocial mental illness masquerading as a political position. I'm thinking of the Berkeley "Naked Guy" from about 29 years ago who ended up homeless and mentally ill, and sadly, ultimately committing suicide in 2003, iirc.
