How does being naked in public turn you into a sex offender??

I don't know about american law, but in blighty, there's an offence 
known as 'outraging public decency', and this can potentially be used 
against naked people, but often isn't. The obligation to wear clothes in 
public is more of a social norm than a legal thing. As it should be.

This flabbergasts me almost as much as the idea of 'school police'.

America appears to be a deeply weird place.
