Public nudity ban eyed in fed-up San Francisco [View all]

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) San Francisco may be getting ready to shed its image as a city where anything goes, including clothing.

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.

Supervisor Scott Wiener's proposal would make it illegal for a person over the age of 5 to "expose his or her genitals, perineum or anal region on any public street, sidewalk, street median, parklet or plaza" or while using public transit.

I think they should ban public nudity. If you want to be a nudest do it on your own property or find a nudist park, I really don't want to see your "business" swinging around when I'm eating out with my family. Thats just my opinion, I'm not afraid of nudity or the human body but there is a time and place for everything and getting gas down as the local shell is not the place to be nude.
