Put Some Clothes On
San Francisco politician pushes for ban on public nudity, which is currently legal.
San Francisco may be a liberal beacon, but the city does have its limits.
City Supervisor Scott Weiner is planning to introduce legislation that will require nudists to wear clothing in restaurants and take a towel to any public bench.
"San Francisco is a liberal and tolerant city, and we pride ourselves on that fact," Wiener recently told the San Francisco Examiner. "Yet, while we have a variety of views about public nudity, we can all agree that when you sit down naked, you should cover the seat, and that you should cover up when you go into a food establishment."
His bill would require that nudist display common courtesy and practice sanitary habits such as covering up in restaurants and putting a towel down when sitting down in public.
