Skip to comments.San Francisco nudists might have to cover up if new ordinance passes

Going bare on the streets of San Francisco could legally become taboo, if a city official's proposal to ban public nudity gains support.
Supervisor Scott Wiener, who represents a district in the city and county of San Francisco, introduced the ordinance Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Wiener's coverage area includes the Castro District, which is notorious for nudity.
"We've always had some public nudity in the Castro," Wiener told NBC on Thursday. But Wiener said there has recently been a significant increase in the neighborhood's Jane Warner Plaza.
"Our town square [is] becoming an ad-hoc nudist colony," Wiener said, adding that on a slow day there are two to four nudists at the plaza, and on a busy day, upward of 10 to 12.
Under the proposed law, nudity would still be allowed at San Francisco's street fairs, festivals, parades and beaches (which are under federal control). The ordinance is instead targeting an increase in daily occurrences of nudists around the district.
Since California state law does not ban public nudity outright, but only "lewd" public behavior, these rules are left for cities and counties to decide, according to The San Francisco Examiner. The Examiner noted that San Francisco's parks and port property already ban nudity, but this proposed ordinance would also include public transit, sidewalks, plazas and smaller "parklets."

Wiener uncomfortable with lack of pants in public.
Wieners are best covered in sauerkraut.
How creepy and unhealthy-—public transit???????? I thought there were health reason not to have a bunch of naked butts sitting around on bus seats....Yuk...who wants to subject themselves to seeing a bunch of perverts desperately trying to get attention. They are so creepy.
We have a right not to be blighted with such sights and exposing our children to people who have no respect and dignity for the human body and privacy in public.
Where is this-—”get out of my bedroom” sodomy cry????? Now they are trying to foist their bathrooms on the public. Very mentally disturbed people.
This is the guy who pushed for it in the first place. Now he’s figuring out that the nudists are dirty old men 100 lbs overweight.
Not sure if it is true, but I heard some restaurants required people to put down towels to avoid ‘skid marks’ on the seats.
“Since California state law does not ban public nudity outright, but only “lewd” public behavior, these rules are left for cities and counties to decide, according to The San Francisco Examiner.”
Words to the wise. Nobody reads the fine print quicker than a pervert.
“Last year, Wiener passed legislation known as the “skid mark law.” That law, which passed the Board of Supervisors unanimously, requires nudists to place barriers between their bare bottoms and public chairs or benches, but many Castro residents complained that didn’t go far enough.”
Oh Lord, I wish I had remembered that wrong. Super-gross!
And I have to go there next week for business. Thankfully I can avoid the skid mark section of town...
Why is it that nudists are, almost without exception, the people you’d least like to see in the nude?
Roflllll !!!!!!! Funny!!
