Folks, I guess this is progress — but only in San Francisco would a public nudity “ban” still allow lots of public nudity — e.g., at homosexual events like the annual “gay pride” parade and Folsom Street Fair. AFTAH has led the way in exposing the “anything-goes” libertine atmosphere of the world’s most infamous ‘Gay’ Mecca, with our periodic exposés of the deviant and bizarre goings-on at Folsom (including homosexual orgies on the street as cops stood idly nearby).
We think it’s instructive to show where liberal “tolerance” leads, and how homosexual-dominated cities like San Francisco and Chicago end up celebrating perversion in its various manifestations, even to the point of lawlessness. “Gay” power has its degenerative consequences.
In 2008, I ventured out to San Francisco with Linda Harvey of Mission America and Diane Gramley of American Family Association of Pennsylvania to hold a press conference condemning the public nudity at Folsom Street. We immediately were shouted down by homosexual activist Michael Petrelis [see this YouTube video], who applauded public nudity (and public sex) — thus demonstrating the homo-fascist (or homo-communist) mentality to perfection.
Of course, the city’s LGBT-intimidated police allowed Petrelis to invade and disrupt our press conference.
Anyway, it appears that the annoyance, disgust and public spectacle of exhibitionists letting it all hang out (anywhere) were too much even for San Francisco’s jaded residents, heterosexual and homosexual alike. Now if only the city would start reining in the equally serious problem of sex clubs (“gay” orgy centers) that encourage reckless, anonymous promiscuity and facilitate the spread of disease. But that would be way too “intolerant” for a city like San Francisco that’s so far to the Loony Left that it had to grant a special (“gay”) exemption to pass a ban on going nude in public. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

San Francisco tells nudists to get dressed
By Ronnie Cohen, Reuters December 4, 2012
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – San Francisco city leaders gave final approval on Tuesday to a ban on public nudity, a measure aimed at curtailing displays of nakedness that some residents and business owners say have gotten out of control in the famously tolerant city.
San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ action at City Hall prompted about a half dozen angry protesters to strip down to their socks.
Standing at the ready with blankets, sheriff’s deputies quickly covered up the demonstrators and led them from the majestic beaux-arts chamber. Protesters, one wearing only rainbow knee socks and another sporting black nylons, chanted, “body freedom” and “shame on you” as they were escorted out.
The Board of Supervisors gave preliminary approval to the nudity ban two weeks ago. Its final 6-5 vote on Tuesday came without further debate from the panel.
The supervisors’ efforts to clamp down on public nudity has caused a flap in the city, where men in particular are known to parade in the buff through the streets of the predominantly gay Castro District.
Some residents and business owners say nudists, and specifically a group known as the Naked Guys, have gone too far with their constant presence at a square in the Castro District. But nudists claim a right to bare all and say politicians in San Francisco, which has often celebrated the bizarre and unconventional, should leave them alone.
Mayor Ed Lee is expected to sign the ordinance, which would clear the way for it to take effect on February 1.
Supervisor Scott Wiener drafted the proposal to ban public nudity in the city, and he represents the Castro District. Opponents dubbed the ordinance the “Wiener bill.”
“This has been a very difficult issue, a lot of strong views on both sides,” Wiener told Reuters after the vote. “But it was an issue that needed to be addressed, and I addressed it in a very narrow way.”
The ban would prohibit most nudity in public, but it would continue to allow marchers at special events, like the San Francisco Pride Parade, to bare all. Children under 5 can be naked in public and sunbathers can continue to strip down on nude beaches.
California state law prohibits indecent exposure, but law enforcement must show evidence of lewd behavior rather than simple nudity. A number of cities, including San Jose and Berkeley, already have nudity bans, Wiener said. [article continues HERE]
