I left my heart in San Francisco

CBS reports on well go figure.

San Francisco Demonstrators stripped naked during a board meeting in San Francisco Tuesday to protest a ban on nudity that had just passed, CBS San Francisco reports.

Excellent a nude protest demanding the right to get nude. They really need to expand it, perhaps taking some pointers from the Femen in Eastern Europe.

The ordinance initially passed 6-5 by the Board of Supervisors on Nov. 20, but was given final approval Tuesday afternoon by the same vote. The new law prohibits nudity on city streets, sidewalks, plazas and other public spaces in what was once known as a nude-friendly city.
Several men and women in the board chambers who came to witness the vote took off their clothes and began to yell at supervisors. They were led out of the chambers by sheriff's deputies, who draped blankets over them because public nudity is not allowed at City Hall.

Christina DiEdoardo, the attorney representing the nudists, told KCAL-TV one protester was taken into custody for resisting arrest.

Once signed by Mayor Ed Lee, who has expressed his support, the legislation will go into effect on February 1.

Nudity will still be permitted for street fairs, parades and other permitted public events and does not apply to children under 5 years old.
Violators would be fined an initial $100 that would increase for additional offenses. Multiple violations could carry jail time.

I would have thought that San Francisco had other issues to worry about. Is it usual to see people wandering nude in the CBD ? Has the city been taken over by the moral majority ?

  1. Fast forward to 2016. Gypsy organized a nude Valentine's day parade. My kids and I came out to watch as they heard Gypsy's 11 year old son was participating. No kidding. He showed up and stripped completely naked. The kids think he is cute and they got the biggest kick out of seeing him naked. I managed to get some really good pictures of her boy. When we got home we edited the pictures and put him on display life size in one of our ultra large digital picture frames. My kids absolutely love having a naked boy to look at and admire and they love showing him off to their friends. Her son is very cute and very good looking, and his pictures displayed life size have become favorites in our house. It amazes me how everyone loves seeing a naked boy.
