Nudists to Supervisor Scott Wiener: Banning Naked People Is "Totally Un-San Franciscan"

We feel you
San Francisco's most committed nudists are working hard to preserve their freedom to flap those penises all around in public.

A local naked person started a petition asking the Board of Supervisors to refuse any legislation that might come before them banning public nudity. Consider it a preemptive strike to Supervisor Scott Wiener's comments that he just might propose a new law prohibiting people from going au naturel in San Francisco.

Here's what the naked folks have to say about that:

Currently the City by the Bay is embroiled in a controversy about public nudity. Right now there is no law preventing public nudity in the City and County of San Francisco. Let's keep it that way!

The general acceptance of public nudity in is one of those cool only-in-San-Francisco things and we want to encourage the City Leaders and Elected Officials to resist giving in to a few anti-nudists who would like to impose a total citywide ban. That's totally un-San Franciscan! Show your support for body freedom and acceptance.
Wiener, who represents the Castro, where most of this public nudity is taking place, has tried to compromise with nudists. Initially, he said he wouldn't ban the bare-skinned, but rather drafted legislation that would, at the very least, force them to put a newspaper, or a towel, or something between their naked bum and wherever they're sitting in public.

But after the cock ring patrol controversy broke out a few weeks ago, Wiener sorta crumbled, telling the Bay Area Reporter that it's just obnoxious and irresponsible for naked men to draw that kind of attention to their private parts.

It's unclear whether Wiener is actively working on legislation to ban nudists, or if the ick factor was just really high for him on that day. Regardless, if you like being naked or you just like seeing others exposed, feel free to add your John Hancock here.

I'm all for freedom but there is a time and a place. I don't think little children need to be scarred.

Just like women with make-up, if it's sagging, cover it up.

Nudity should not be banned in San Francisco, that's what makes it special. San Francisco is filled with wonderfully sin full things, so why would you bring your child up in that environment? It's an adult Disneyland. if you want to raise your children around a Chuck E Cheese and a conservative City move to Wisconsin or Iowa. as far as only allowing beautiful people to get nude, San Francisco is not about judging people. Next thing you know they're going to ban all the punks and Goths.the gay men making out must scare you people. Bwahhha

I have a young child. I don't want my daughter seeing naked people. Not everyone wants to see nudity. You're foisting your nudity on those who don't want to see. Also how come the people who want public nudity are gross?

"The general acceptance of public nudity in is one of those cool only-in-San-Francisco things..."   Nice try.  The fact is very few people accept that BS.   If the mayor and supervisors don't take care of the unacceptable behavior it will eventually end up on the ballot and the voters will solve the problem.

I'm all for freedom and all that, but seriously, the only people I see walking around the city naked are crusty ass old dudes and sorry gramps, but no one wants to see your shriveled up old cock n balls.

 @HowardEpstein LOL on what do you base these assertions? From my perspective, this ban would never pass a popular vote. The overwhelming majority of San Franciscans—as opposed to the small, vocal, whiny minority pushing for this ban—don't care about nudity in public.
