San Francisco nudists rally for right to bare it all

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Two dozen pro-nudity activists wearing little but their righteous indignation assembled on the steps of San Francisco City Hall on Wednesday to protest a proposed municipal ban on public nakedness.

(Snip)

"Nudophobic bigotry has now taken root here in San Francisco," Rusty Mills, 69, stripped down to his tanned birthday suit, told his fellow demonstrators as they stood in the sunshine of an unseasonably warm, 70-degree Fahrenheit (21-degree Celsius) fall day.

(Snip)

On the way back to City Hall, elementary school children playing on a schoolyard gawked and pointed at the naked demonstrators.

Supervisor Scott Wiener introduced the proposal to curb undressing after residents complained about a daily gathering of naked men in Jane Warner Plaza, a square in the Castro District. He called the lawsuit a baseless "publicity stunt."

(Snip)

"A lot of people who live in the neighborhood are just sick of the fact that seven days a week there are men taking their pants off and displaying their genitals on our sidewalks and plaza," he added.

Under the proposed law, which critics dubbed the "Wiener bill," nudity would still be allowed at permitted parades, fairs and festivals, as well as on designated nude beaches.

“But the thing you don’t realize is that there’s good naked and bad naked”

No one wants to see your naked body and laugh.
By the way... the left one is cancerous.

Where’s the normal people’s right of not having to endure the unnecessary suffering of seeing old hippies walking around naked?

LOL!

It’s an axiom—those who fight to shed clothes SHOULD be wearing clothes!

Funny how the ones we really don’t want to see sans clothing, are the ones who want to bare it all.

Most people who wish to go nude in public are the last people on Earth who should be allowed to do so.

As predicted by me five years ago. This is why it does no good to retreat from an issue and declare defeat. You never get rid of an issue...they push more. Just as acceptance of open gayness in the military has not removed gay issues, legal abortion has not taken that issue off the table, etc.

Whose rights prevail in this situation?

Their “right” to nudity, or my “right” to not be offended/disgusted when I go downtown?

You don't have any rights. You're supposed to turn your neighborhood over to deviants of all sorts. First tolerance is demanded then outright support.

Nudophobic bigotry....the civil rights issue of modern times.

Someday your children will ask you how you could have lived in a society where nudophobia was so rampant.

And I should be praying for our politicians? The entire system we are living under needs to be blown up and started all over. God is not looking down on America in a favorable light as he maybe did back in the founding.

My thughts exactly. It’s NEVER the ripped, gorgeous types. It’s always the ones who don’t have anyone who WANTS to see them naked who feel compelled to MAKE others see them. It’s a real narcissistic fetish. The best thing to do is LAUGH! Point and laugh.

Please, no photos. Sitting in my car one day in the Castro district, I had the dubious distinction of witnessing one of these fine citizens strolling along the sidewalk.

To my shrink’s everlasting delight, I still have flashbacks.

Certifiable lunatic.

Unfortunately, setting public policy on the basis of utter and irremediable lunacy has become a major factor in public life - as the election of a foreign-born Marxist to the presidency demonstrates perfectly well.
