Nudists in San Francisco may have strutted their stuff a bit too much. Now San Francisco lawmakers will consider a law against public nudity.

McCray Winpsett said, "A few lewd exhibitionists are really ruining it for the rest of us. It's my time to come out now to present myself in a light and show what true nudity is all about so people can separate the difference between what a nudist is and an exhibitionist is." Winpsett said he disagrees with the law because the nudist tradition "keeps San Francisco weird."

    The entire state of California should become Totally nude when the weather is warm enough.

    Meh, I am not into it but I see no reason not to. Other places in the worlds have no issue with it, and I think it could teach people that the human body is not taboo and in this state is a natural thing

    I'm saying "No" simply because you don't know the people you're sharing the city with. How are you supposed to know if they're sexual criminals or not?

    On any other basis, I could care less about how you view clothes. For one thing, you were designed to be naked - even the Bible recognized this, when it described Adam and Eve fashioning clothes for themselves after eating the apple. For another, nudity =/= sex crimes, or you'd be charged with one every time you stripped down to take a shower. For a third thing, a good portion of work from the Renaissance and ancient times focuses on the human form without clothes on, and I doubt you approve censoring huge portions of the human race's past.

    I live in San Francisco . . . And their spokesman for nudity in delivering his personal message on Local Television Stations, mostly concentrate on teaching children about their young bodies . . . It is so obvious that the selected disgusting-pervert is drooling over the thought of having his own harem of Boy Toys to turn to at his convenience; if ONLY the Law will allow him to do that . . . The Ruling was turned down 6-to-5, by the way . . . It's for certain now that they are going to add it to the Ballot in the next Election . . . There's no doubt about that.

    They should have their own nudist camp if they want to be nude...but, why do we have to see other's "junk" or sit where they might have been...etcetera.....I have no problem with nudity, or them wanting to be....I just don't want to see theirs....and no one else should have to either...unless they want to....then they can join the nudist camp...
  • fredrik19 Muver 2012/11/21 17:54:32
    but the thing that u have to see about those nude camps is that some parents force their children to join the camp some pedophile that don't even believe in the concept of nudity can join the camp and rape those children i don't think it will be a good idea to accept those camps at all
  • Keegan ... fredrik19 2012/11/21 18:17:50
    Keegan The Fabulous
    Why can't there be barriers in place to keep pedophiles out, such as mandates that people joining the camp be at least 18 years old? Last time I checked, just because you're naked doesn't mean you're committing a sex crime, or you'd be arrested for indecent exposure every time you took a shower.

    And you do realize pedophiles already attack in places where clothes are mandated, like schools and on the street and so forth... right? Clothes aren't the same thing as armor.
  • fredrik19 Keegan ... 2012/11/21 18:31:40 (edited)
    i see ur point but it will be hard to keep them out even tho you have age restriction , the thing I'm saying is that when u wear unappropriated clothes rapist get arouse so imagine when your completely naked
  • Keegan ... fredrik19 2012/11/21 18:41:34
    Keegan The Fabulous
    Rapists will get aroused by looking at their victims period - it has very little, if nothing, to do with what you're wearing.

    Besides, why should we not do something just because it's extremely difficult? I could argue that we shouldn't have police forces because hunting fugitives down is difficult, but the benefits of having police forces outweighs the drawbacks.
  • fredrik19 Keegan ... 2012/11/21 19:10:00
    truth but did u know that now their is a law that put pedophiles and rapist in the disable list so basically the law protect them too so some time it is up to the communities to protect each other when police force or justice can't or wont do anything to protect the people
  • Muver fredrik19 2012/11/23 06:06:02
    They can be chartered as private clubs, and then mandates can be put in place that make background checks part of the deal, and blood tests, no children..must be 21.and whatever else they want to do to protect themselves...

    I would vote to ban it if I lived in San Fran, but I don't. If San Franciscans wish to walk around with their Bday suit showing, they should decide that for themselves, not by following the directive of a bunch of bureaucrats, besides I have no plans involving San Francisco other than an occasional (1 or 2/year) visit, which is about all I can stand before wanting to back to normalcy again.

    It's time to ban it. We've seen them standing stark naked on the side of the freeway during rush hour, holding up signs saying "Go Ahead. Arrest Us. The Law says we can do this--While Naked!"
  • johnpaul mae 2012/11/21 15:20:07
    Freedom comes with price called tolerance. Likes & dislikes are learned. If there is no injury, harm, or lost it none of the state's business!
  • mae johnpaul 2012/11/21 18:07:48 (edited)
    As much as I would like to support this, it has become a present-yourself arena for every pedophile, exhibitionist, sex fetish practitioner in the state. Nudity has ceased to be safe for families with children. It has ceased to be safe for children going to and coming home from school, playground, a friends house. There are no restricted areas, nudity can happen nearly everywhere, since the law was written that way. I'm not against nudity. I am against the criminal behaviors that masquerade as a simple, basic, desire to be without clothes--when other desires, compulsions, hurtful behaviors are what is really driving that decision. Of course, these extremes are in the minority, frowned upon by nudity purists, but are increasing rapidly, fueled by out-of-state transplants who see their chance to carry on their behaviors without legal recrimination.
