Public Nudists Have 15 Days Left of Grossing People Out
We know there's gotta be some parents out there counting down the days from their kitchen calendar where they can safely take the kids on a family stroll to Dolores Park without fear of running into those freely flapping dicks.
Will soon need a wardrobe
On Feb. 1, the new law banning most public nudity begins, which means all the naked people will have to cover themselves in some sort of fabric before they leave the house, or face an unpleasant fine.
Nudists, hoping to reverse this law, are going to give San Francisco one last show (at least, we hope it's the last) tomorrow when they will gather naked in front of the Federal building -- the same day their class action lawsuit goes before a judge.
Public nudists (who are now referring to themselves as urban nudists) filed their claim last year, calling the nudity ban unfair, and, more importantly, unconstitutional.
"It violates the First Amendment right -- right to free speech. It also violates the 14th Amendment: equal protection rights. Since the city is making an exception for expensive city-permitted events that very few people can afford to put on, an inequality is created, which violates equal protection rights," nudists say. "The ban also goes against the California State Law and the Fedral[sic] Law which do not criminalize non-sexual nudity."
According to Matt Dorsey, spokesman for the City Attorney's Office, the judge could rule from the bench tomorrow or or provide some indication of how he intends to rule. "We think he'll hold the hearing and take it under consideration," Dorsey said.
It will probably the same T&A you've seen at most nudists events, but tomorrow the temperatures are expected to be chilly again, so it might be worth your lunch break to see if these exhibitionists can bear the cold tomorrow (they didn't weather the winter rain so well).
If you haven't seen enough, head over to the Federal Court House at noon.
