SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- San Francisco may be getting ready to shed its image as a city where anything goes, including clothing.
City lawmakers are scheduled to vote Tuesday on an ordinance that would prohibit nudity in most public places, a blanket ban that represents an escalation of a two-year tiff between a devoted group of men who strut their stuff through the city's famously gay Castro District and the supervisor who represents the area.
Supervisor Scott Wiener's proposal would make it illegal for a person over the age of 5 to "expose his or her genitals, perineum or anal region on any public street, sidewalk, street median, parklet or plaza" or while using public transit.

The problem isn’t the nudity, per se. It’s that those who should not be going nude are the ones who are.
No mention in the article about gay pride. Touchy subject in this context?
That is a term I had not heard of before. Now I know after looking it up. I guess if I lived in San Francisco I would be more “educated” in these matters. By the way as youngster we used to call it by another name.
I must be getting old because all this nudity offends me.
“Its that those who should not be going nude are the ones who are.”
The only ones that should be going nude are ethnic tribes in primitive, secluded locations.
A Crossman .177 Pellet gun aimed at the right spot would take care of the problem.
I had to look it up too. Taint right to be showin that in public.
yeah, supervisor Wiener, who seems to have found his calling in life legislating about wieners
go figure! some things are seemingly pre-ordained...
i t ain’t no big deal.....
I, for one, am sorry to hear this. I had hoped their overly permissive and highly offense ordinances would stick around for ever. No doubt it has hindered tourism which is why they now want to change the law. I’m all for tourism in that city dying, killed by the abhorrent behavior of the bottom-dwellers who reside there.
Yes. In SF it is LEGAL to walk around nude. And the people who do are usually old, fat GAY men. It’s disgusting. Near Folsom street every year they have an, “Up Your Alley” festival —that is the real name.
At this festival, it is common for men to publically fellate one another on the street, or to pee on each other. They will also have beatings, a type of simle S & M. And this is all on a public street where cops are “keeping order”.
It is completely disgusting.
Fit, under 30, Amazonian females. ;-D
Actually I’ve seen some of the pictures from that Folsom festival, or whatever they call it. I’d be jail within 10 minutes of trying anything like that even in liberal Oregon, not that I’d want to. I only visited San Fran Freako once, and had the feeling that if I looked behind me while driving away, I’d be a pillar of salt now.
Any decent person would have the natural modesty not to do those things already — there wouldn’t have to be a law enacted to prevent it. Now, who in SF will have the purient responsibility to enforce said laws?
‘Buh buh buh baby you just taint seen nuthin yet.’
I wouldn’t visit Sodombythesea w/o a can of Lysol.
Nancy Pelosi should know better at her age. They really need to keep her locked up at night.
Imagine the fun you could have with a big can of bear spray!
