Swiss Voters Outlaw Nudity in Nature

After an invasion of German nudists, voters in the Swiss Alps have banned hiking in the buff.

The tiny canton (state) of Appenzell Inner Rhodes held a show-of-hands vote on the "disgraceful" practice at their open-air assembly. The majority decided to impose a fine of about $176 on people found hiking around their mountains sans pantaloons. Considering this conservative canon only gave women the vote in 1990, it's not surprising that naked hikers make them blush.

Would you vote to ban nude hikers, or should they have the right to go au natural in nature?

Personally, I think they should simply have some designated "nudist hiking paths", just as there are nudist beaches. I mean, the demand obviously seems to be there... ;) Btw, it's "canton", not "canon".

I don't really feel like it's appropriate to be naked when there's a chance that you'll run into others who don't necessarily want to see your naughty bits. Plus, there's something really unsexy about hiking boots + socks + penis.

No I would not vote to ban nudity in (Federally) owned wilderness areas. I'll tell you one place I would vote to ban nudity though and that's at gay pride celebrations. What the hell does walking around nude on city streets in front of thousands of people including children have to do with being gay. Not a damn thing. I am thoroughly disgusted every time I see that.
