Public nudity ban eyed in San Fran

Nov 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WNDY-TV Indianapolis

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.

I stopped vacationing there, when they thought it was okay for homeless guys to hustle tourists for change, along Fisherman's Wharf.....

This reminds me.... In The State Of New York, it is perfectly legal for a female to be bare-breasted in public anywhere a male is allowed to be.

From time to time, for various reasons,(like the other day when a story with images was published of a body painting festival) in The New York Post and\or The New York Daily News, the editors always have the females' nipples digitally obscured, but not so for the males.

Now since it is perfectly legal, and certainly not immoral, for both males and females to be bare-breasted in public in New York, I have emailed both newspapers a few times, inquiring about why they treat these images differntly. I have never recieved a reply.

Majority of public perception is that it should not be viewable by a child. If the nips were shown in the newspaper, less people would buy them do to kids being able to see the paper at home. The papers are there to make money, anything that lowers viewership/purchasing hurts them. They therefore choose to obscure.

You're right ! I never thought about the children ! SAVE THE CHILDREN ! Now looking back on it, I remember that whenever either of my sisters breastfed their babies, they always put tiny blindfolds on them so they wouldn't see their nipples !

SAVE THE CHILDREN !

I'm FROM Patchogue. I just moved to Coolidge, Arizona last month.

And yes, I spent a lot of time at the Brickhouse Brewery over the years. And I DO remember when it was Shands General Store, and I think I still have some things I purchesed form Shands in the mid-80's.

There are nude beaches, resorts, where entire families go. Does'nt seem to havr any ill effects on them. Then tribes in jungles have much nudity, does'nt seem to harm them either. Maybe they're more advanced sosocially.

we have a nude beach and a few resorts. Families, all ages are among other nudists, and no one complains about it. I've been to those places and never seen a problem with any age person seeing naked people.

Those places are in private locations, not in public. In San Francisco gay men run around naked all over the place in public and engage in sex acts out in the open. I once took my family on vacation there, not knowing and believe me it wasn't pretty.

the nude beach is in public. People of all ages and both sexes run around nude.. people have sex in many places public. There are forums on it. I was a security guard at an apartment complex and got calls about it. Just saying do'nt be duped that sex just do'nt happen at nude places only. At least when people have sex at a. Public nude accepted local,it would be in a tent because public sex in the open, even at a nude beach or resort, you're told to leave!

Always wanted to visit California, but I think I'd skip Frisco. Why the heck do some people enjoy running around in the nude and having sex in public? Weird. Maybe it's a primitive thing, Idk, but like you said, it doesn't sound pretty.

You could just stay home...watch, L.A. Confidential....Mulholland Falls....Devil in a Blue Dress....and daydream about how wonderful it must have been.....Or, actually visit L.A., and have that awful reality and frame of reference for a lifetime....Dreams die hard....

Not into TV much or those shows. I always liked "Rice A Roni" - "the San Francisco treat" ...and the trolley!
