Protest poster, coming soon to a wall near you!
Free the dingleberries!
Slime trails are part of freedom of expression!
It's a shame to see what has become of this city. I don't go there anymore, especially with all the nudity. Who would want to sit down in restaurant after some nasty pig sat his or hers naked a$$ there? Yeah, there's stuff dangling and I doubt it's a pair of b@lls.
The problem with public nudity is that the ones who are nude are the ones you least want to see nude.
Zombietime blog has pictures of the ugly, disease-brained clowns they are fed up with out there. The pics are from "festivals" and protests over the last six years or so. Prepare the brain bleach before looking, though.
Definitely NSFW. Or for decent people.
(It's okay, I'm a musician.)
What a sad testimony to the degradation of their little slice of Heaven when they have to make a law to enforce what common sense apparently can't.
They should just charge and licenses tax and also have to pass a "aesthetic approval" process prior to getting their license to be naked....a very stringent aesthetic approval..
Do these people have no limits as to what is acceptable human behaviour? What kind of a person feigns outrage because they are being forced to join society and cover themselves? This is absolutely THE most twisted place in the U.S.
I never understood this. In most cities this is considered public indecency. I used to know a woman who moved to SF and rode her motorcycle in a parade topless. I said "what is the purpose of showing your business to everyone in sight?" No reply.
These people are mentally unbalanced and belong in a secure environment (looney bin) not walking about showing their mental incapacity to everyone. Disgusting, abnormal, twisted behavior. To say their moral compass doesn't point to True North would be wrong... They simply do not HAVE a moral compass!
Take 1: Sodom Frisco, sister city of Los Gomorrah.
Take 2: Real-life nudists are NOT the hot late-teen and twenty-somethings you saw portrayed in 80's R-rated comedies. Like biker gangs and Madonna, they turn out to be dried-up, wrinkled old things whose wardrobe in a sane world would consist entirely of burqas.
After all the trouble the SF 'freaks' went to, to make it legal, what's up with that? You think that maybe they finally figured out that most San Francisco residents don't look like Kimberley Guilfoyle and a whole more like Nancy Pelosi.
Again the Progressives move the bar backward. It is not progressive to move our highly evolved society back to the days of Clan of the Cave Bear. Public nudity is a self-indulgence and/or exhibitionism. It certainly shows a general lack of respect for the sensibilities of one's community, and therefore a lack of self-respect. The Progressives show us at every turn that they live by the mantra, "Only I matter and if you disagree, you are intolerant."
It's the paradox of liberalism. San Francisco has become such a liberal nanny state that they are now banning people from public expressions of nudity that any open-minded progressive person would allow.
I've spent some time in S.F. over the past few years, and for all of the city's aesthetic beauty, the place gives off a really unpleasant vibe. Panhandlers are everywhere, there are street people camped out on the sidewalks and in the public parks. It feels dangerous -- like you could get assaulted or robbed and no one would do anything about it.
What a shocking display of intolerance for people who are just like us except that they like walking around with their genitalia out so children (and adults, but children more importantly) can see them. /sarc
What's with SF? Don't they know they are a BIG part of California?
Duh!!! Don't Ban what you can TAX...
this is such a no brainer issue
people can do their nude stuff somewhere else but not in public
yet smokers can't smoke anywhere in San Fran wow what a joke
I used to live there a long time ago. Not actually in the City, but in San Jose. At the time, I thought it was fascinating, and you know what? It really was.
It is a sadness that so many of America's great landmarks are being taken over and destroyed by degenerates who weren't there before and have no appreciation for what these places mean to the rest of us. San Francisco is a treasure, that we have lost.
If you haven't been to the Top of the Mark, or sat in the audience as Tony Bennett belted out one more time, his signature song, I feel sorry for you.
As I grow older, I find myself living more in the past, than the present. Because the past makes sense. Sadly, the present doesn't.
There are some things that still make me feel American. Tony Bennett. Frank Sinatra. Dean Martin. John Wayne, Gene Autry. I was named after Gene Autry. That's funny, I know. But my parents tried to name their children after people they admired. My brother was named after a popular Congressman of the time. I got stuck with Gene Autry.
It never bothered me really. Because I came to admire the man. He lived a respectable life, gave millions of Americans pleasure, and lived the life of a decent human being.
We should all live such a life. Sadly, I don't think we will. I feel a tragedy coming. There is a disconnect, between those of us who still believe in Freedom, and those of us, who believe the government can provide for us.
It is that disconnect between us, that signals the failure of this great nation, and what the Founders feared would happen.
The Constitution was not written on a whim. It did not come into being, because of idle conversation. Quite the contrary. The Founders labored long and hard, to produce a document that would protect future generations, long after they themselves were dead and buried.
It is ignored by this Communist Muslim we have for a President. He does whatever he damn well pleases, by issuing Executive Orders. He goes around the Constitution. He goes around Congress. He has made himself, King. There is even talk, that he is putting in place the idea of a third Presidential term. Roosevelt all over again. A dictator, Chicago style.
God help us. What did we do, to deserve this? Don't answer that question.
So very well said white 531.
I've been to the Top of the Mark…"hung on" the outside rail of a cable car, eaten still warm sourdough bread….
I've walked along Market Street to look at Christmas decorations in storefronts, and ridden the Roof-Rides on top of the Emporium Department Store, a long standing Holiday tradition.
I’ve watched the and actors like John Wayne, Ingrid Bergman, Vivien Leigh and Humphrey Bogart and enjoyed truly great comedians such as Carol Burnett only to see them attempted to be replaced by today’s industry with people like Matt Damon, Lindesy Lohan, Jodie Foster…and Sarah Silverman .
Like you, I yearn for customs- and a society that equals my values, and not one that has progressed to one that is so unfamiliar to me. I could easily adjust, but I don’t want to.
PS I like the tradition your parents used when naming their children.
I bet you know Gene Autrys Cowboy code:
"He must not take unfair advantage of an enemy."
"He must never go back on his word."
"He must always tell the truth."
"He must always be gentle with children, elderly people and animals."
"He must not possess racially or religious intolerant ideas."
"He must help people in distress."
"He must be a good worker."
"He must respect women, parents, and his nation's laws."
"He must neither drink or smoke."
"He must be a patriot."
I like the name Gene. I've known a couple of them, both good and honorable gentlemen. :-) That was nice in a bittersweet kind of way Whitefriend. I feel the same way when I go back home. Toronto used to be a great place too, even the seedy sections were strange, yet still "safe". Now, it's sad and I really have no desire to go back. The times when we grew up weren't perfect, but my heart is sad for those who have to grow up now.
God Bless you my friend.
God Bless you, doesn't even cover it. Not by a long shot. But I do love your words.
How can electronic friendships develop so quickly and become so permanent? I believe it is because we are not in front of each other. Because we are not in front of each other, we are not afraid of speaking our minds.
In our conversations here each evening, we come to know more about each other, than we know about our own family members we have lived with all our lives.
I've never met you. I probably never will. But I know enough about you, to know what you are about. I know by your comments, that you are a decent human being. I know you care about others, even people you've never met.
If the world we live in, was made up of people like you, and the others who frequent The Right Scoop, on a regular basis, then there wouldn't be a need for a site like TRS.
Sadly, that is not the case, and you and I both know it.
Let's all of us just keep talking about it, and see if we can make some sense of it all.
If in the end, nothing is accomplished by that exercise, I will still not think our time was wasted. Friendship is something you can always put in the bank, and draw upon, in your old age. Don't you think?
Whitefriend, I've posted this quote before, because it's a good one, but also because I think it applies to many of us here... "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one” C.S.Lewis
I might not have much in material things, I might not have much by the world's standards, but I feel like I am the most wealthy woman in the world because of my family here. I am blessed by many of you. Thank you.
I could care less really. Just make sure there is an age limit.. no nudity if you are over 50 and/or 50lbs overweight.
San Fran is such a cesspool of degenerates... is it wrong that I wake every morning hoping to hear the big one hit taking the entire area down into the depths of hell along with all the crooked politicians like Pelosi,Waxman,Waters & Moonbean
Please guys, let me enjoy the 9er wooping the Bear here in the Candlestick Park. I don't drink, but I may have to find a Corona to gargle
Thanks Scoop for making my day. I'll drive by Polk street and take some pics and send them to each in everyone of you here. lol
Have you ever noticed it's only the ugly old geezer (or geezerette) that wants to let it all hang out? Maybe they should force them to apply for a license before bearing all--TSA screeners could make the approvals.
Hey San Francisco--the 60s are calling...they want their drugs back.
Where are the fire trucks with water cannons when you need them? Those freaks looked like they needed to be introduced to soap and shampoo just badly as some clothes.
Ah, ugh ! hate driving by this part of the town.The last thing I would have to see is a naked man, disgusting. At least wear a diaper these leaky bowels. I throw up & pardon the graphic info
A ban on public nudity? In San Francisco? Next thing you'll be telling me they've banned having sex in San Francisco with sheep! That's so baaaaaaaad.
