If you can wear a mask, like with a burqa, then why can't you go naked.
I can respect standing up for that liberty than the oppressive, security risk burqa.
Why sacrifice the liberty of being able to run around naked?
Why don't nudist deserve the same level of liberty?
Oh, and being drunk in public is against the law. At least here in CA.
(f) Who is found in any public place under the influence of
intoxicating liquor, any drug, controlled substance, toluene, or any
combination of any intoxicating liquor, drug, controlled substance,
or toluene, in a condition that he or she is unable to exercise care
for his or her own safety or the safety of others, or by reason of
his or her being under the influence of intoxicating liquor, any
drug, controlled substance, toluene, or any combination of any
intoxicating liquor, drug, or toluene, interferes with or obstructs
or prevents the free use of any street, sidewalk, or other public

Yes, I do know what a security risk is. No, I don't think the TSA should be present, but I think scanning people is probably more egalitarian than blanket telling muslims what they can, cannot wear.
Regardless of when the burqa started being used, and who advocates its use, there are some muslims who wish to protect their modesty in this way. Who the hell are you to tell someone what they can and cannot do?
