San Francisco Nudists Say A Nudity Ban Would Just Make Them Get Naked Even More
Business Insider ^ | 11/20/2012 | Eoin Reynolds, The Guardian

Posted on 11/20/2012 7:50:34 AM PST by SeekAndFind

San Francisco nudists said on Monday they would continue to walk the streets naked regardless of a proposed law that would order them to cover up.

City authorities are meeting on Tuesday to decide on a new anti-nudity law that is being supported by residents and business owners in the city's Castro district. The law would make it an offence for anyone over the age of five to "expose his or her genitals, perineum or anal region on any public street, sidewalk, street median, parklet or plaza".

Lloyd Fishbach, left, who was standing naked at the corner of Castro and Market, said it should be his choice to dress as he wants, where he wants.

"There is always someone who is not going to like what you are doing," he said. "I live in the Castro and I've been doing this since first grade. This is just a bunch of uptight Americans. But I'll still keep doing it and if I see the cops coming I will run and hide."

Natalie Mandeau and her friend Dany, pictured below, said they travelled from Berlin when they heard of the proposed ban on nudity in San Francisco.

You just can’t make this stuff up. From the article:

_____________________

Dany said: “If America bans this it would be a shame. San Francisco is one of the only places in the world where you can experience real American freedom.”

Castro resident George Davis added that there would be a backlash against the law and warned that Scott Wiener, the area representative who proposed the ban, will face strong opposition at the next election in 2013.

He added: “I told him that if this passes I will run against him and I will do it in the nude.”

Adam answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”

And God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”
(Genesis 3:10-11)

The city could allow “open season” on nudists for those with paintball guns that are loaded with bright green, blue and red leather dye.

They can get naked all they want, once they are in the county jail.

The problem is that most of the people who get naked in public are way to ugly for outside viewing.

Apparently they have learned how to “double down” from der leader.

Just arrest em when they break the law and put em “as is” in an unenviromentally controlled jail cell. I’ve been to Frisco, it does get cold there.

Interesting what you say. This morning on the news, they had video of a naked man walking down the street. Coming towards him was a young woman with the saddest expression. It’s so obvious that she’s deeply uncomfortable and unhappy. More proof of my theory that gay male activists loathe women.

Except no this, that, and the other. San Freako is a city with the most bans of any city. They seem to compete with NYC for the title, though.

On the other hand it would be interesting to know how many muslims are there in Castro Districts. Perhaps nudity could be used as a tool to innoculate society against the disease.

And, HOW many people have a permit to carry a gun in SF?

Seems the same could be said by an illegal drug user, a thief, a prostitute or just about any other activity normal Americans shun.

SF is always cold mostly foggy all day even in summer maybe late afternoon warms up for a couple of hours.

Years back the Petter Puffers were so in your face in Ft Laud the city restructured the entire A1A area to make sure their obscene in your face behavior ended.
It was the sleazy bars and hang outs all along the main “Drag” that attracted them and the scum couldn’t wait to go to their rooms to sodomize and felate one another and were doing it on the beach and in the bushes.
Normal people stopped goning to Laud Beach because of these perverts.

San Fran is obviously fed up with the in your face fagots BS and good for them.Too bad it takes so long for city officials to react.

Now, is exposing your genitals, perineum or anal region in public in the Declaration or is it in the Constitution? I forget.

Reintroduce wolves to San Francisco. The people without clothes are easier to eat. Shoot, train the wolves to go after the naked ones. I’d pay good money to watch that episode of Wild Kingdom.

It was a nut house in Venture Ca.Many wild treatments went on even electrical shock treatment.

The Hotel California was a metaphor for hedonism, materialism, and excess. That's it. Just a metaphor.

When asked about the song's meaning on 60 Minutes on November 25, 2007, Don Henley said: "I know, it's so boring. It's a song about the dark underbelly of the American Dream, and about excess in America which was something we knew about."

Glenn Frey once said in a London interview:

"That record explores the underbelly of success, the darker side of paradise. Which was sort of what we were experiencing in Los Angeles at that time. So that's just sort of became a metaphor for the whole world and for everything you know. And we just decided to make it Hotel California. So with a microcosm of everything else going on around us."

All those Nativity Scenes that have been banned in Santa Monica should be a welcome sight to this guy. Set them all up on the corner of Castro and Market streets.
