STREAKS OF NATURE: San Francisco to ban public nudity. Seriously.

The folks in San Francisco have finally reached their limit of liberalism and public nudity is where they draw the line. Well at least many have. There are still a militant few who will call you a ‘nudophobe’ if you disagree with their right to dangle, bounce, or sag their way through the streets of San Francisco in their birthday suits.

But the city has finally reached the point that it will vote to ban public nudity, at least in most places. Just too many complaints. But parades and beaches will still be open to your private parts if you care to show them off.

    You certainly have a way with words, Scoop.

  • poljunkie

    It’s hard to believe that is the same city where I grew up.

    • toongoon

      I’m glad you made it out with your sanity.

      • poljunkie

        Why thank you!
        It was a great place to grow up- but Im glad I left when I did. (in the 90’s)

        • sDee

          I lived there in the early 70’s. It was the greatest city to live in. Beautiful. Irreverent, but tolerant and respectful.

          Used to go back every year or so for vacation. It got more depressing every year until we just could not go back anymore.

          • poljunkie

            Yep. Growing up I LOVED it. The beach, the neighborhoods…The food, the music, the people. It was fantastic.

            When we first moved, I missed it. I even missed the weather. It was a drastic change- the drizzle and fog to Arizona. We went back once in awhile at first, but little by little we stopped. The weather began getting cold- VERY COLD to us, and the people began to seem totally out there. AND just couldnt stand the politics.

          • poljunkie

            Oh, and the Late bake extra sour bread!

            • sDee

              Sourdough toast from Boudin with butter, washed down with a hot Irish Coffee.

              • poljunkie


                Boudin! Yum.

                I also loved Laraburu – one of my best gurl friends who i’ve known since high school! (70’s)Would go to Fairlane market on 43rd and Vicente and buy a loaf, and a hunk of cheddar cheese and then drive down to the Great Highway, and sit on the hood of our car blasting our stereo!! HA Some days we’d sit there until the fog rolled in.

                She still lives there- and sends me bread on my birthday but sadly not Laraburu!

          • keyesforpres

            It is beautiful. When I was there I thought I’d love to live there if it was full of conservatives!

  • Oh good grief! Scoop, your editorial made me laugh, but please!! Pass the mind bleach! dangle, bounce, and sag is a little too much info… but then again, so are some of these clothaphobes. Cheer up sanfran, at least you’ll still be allowed to see all the nekkid people you want during the next pride parade. OY.

    • PJRodman

      One of the perks of this open mindedness…not a tight sphincter amongst them.

      • Landscaper


      • Oy Paula! Dang now I really need a double dose. Mind bleach. I ought to buy stock in it. 😉

      • iaintlyin

        but a lot of slack jaws

    • poljunkie

      Yes, I admit it- I dont get the pride parades.

      • tinlizzieowner

        How’s this. A whole bunch of people who are so damn insecure about their own sexuality, they feel the need to wear it around like an “I’m Queer and I’m here” tee shirt.

  • NetizenKane

    Yeah, but public sodomy is still okay, right? I mean, what’s the world coming to if you can’t bugger in front of children…

    • Ew

    • stevenbiot

      I really hope that sodomy in public isn’t okay.

      • Hi Steven!

        • stevenbiot

          Hey, Sweetie! I’ve missed you.

      • Army Of One

        Google Fulton Street festival, Steven. You might want to have a barf bag nearby…

  • JeffWRidge

    “Nudophobes?” More like “disgustophobes.” We’re repulsed by seeing disgusting displays. Criminy, can’t these weirdos start a club and do their exhibitionism out of sight from the rest of humanity? Do they absolutely have to force it on others?

    What am I saying; of course they have to force their bizarro ways on others, they’re lefties. That what lefties do. Force their ways on other people.

    • keyesforpres

      We could call them, “Moralphobes”, “Decenyphobes”, etc.

  • Patriot077

    How very apropos that the name of the city supervisor interviewed may have been Anthony Wiener’s cousin.

    • sDee

      Kimberly Guilfoyle was married to previous mayor Gavin Newsom. I can never take her seriously.

      • poljunkie

        I KNOW! When I saw that , I couldnt believe it.

        • tinlizzieowner

          She was educated at UC Berzerkeley too but as with the ex-husband, she wised up.
          😉 😉

      • Patriot077


  • tshtsh

    I like the title Scoop change two letters and it sums up San Francisco.

  • stevenbiot

    Hahahaha! This country is currently residing in a mixture of the movie Idiocracy and Hell.

  • toongoon

    Just be sure to wear flowers in your hair if you’re going to San Francisco.

    • stevenbiot

      Just don’t let your hands dangle by your side as you are walking. You may accidentally touch somebody’s member.

      • toongoon

        I’ve spent an afternoon in Ole San Fran. I won’t be back. 🙂

        • GreenBeretWay

          I got stuck there on a flight delay once.That was a freak show to behold.

      • Oh good grief. I gotta get out of this thread. ew.

  • sDee

    Even San Franciscan’s can’t bear the stench of scraping the bottom of the cesspool.

    • iaintlyin

      Maybe they got tired of scraping what should be at the bottom of a cesspool, off their park benches.

      • Constance


        Made me shudder just to think of it.

      • Patriot077

        I think we are on the same wave length tonight. I picked up on that supervisor’s name too 🙂

        • poljunkie

          Oh ha.

  • deeme

    As a person who washes my toilet seats a few times a day for loved ones and friends all I can say is Amen…Seriously they are past needing to put down exam table paper on all their restarant booths and chairs..never mind the children they have harmed for life..It’s bad enough what I’ve seen at lakes in Austin without fair warning..Do some people just have no mirrors in their homes???

    • poljunkie

      I do the same and my family thinks im a little nuts.

      I get a little freaked out when I have to sit on airline seats. yuk. I always feel like pulling out a towel to put down….Especially when its still warm from the last long flight. eeeew.

      • deeme

        Too funny everyone makes fun of me because I don’t care what it takes I hold it until I am home or at a hotel…LOL..I hate public restrooms.

        • I’d never make fun of you… I feel and do exactly the same. 🙂

        • poljunkie

          I try to do the same.

          I have a funny story – in short- the worst, most raunchy bathroom ever at a gas station , and I really had to go in a food poisioning kind of way, and no seat covers or TP-I did the hover – lost my balance and fell full butt. I think I rushed home and and dipped myself into alcohol. HA
          College. Good times.

          • deeme

            Too funny I forgot those college day, and also first time drinking stories, I think I was throwing up one time and didn’t care what my head was lying…

            • poljunkie

              Yep. the bushes are always clean!!

  • PhillyCon

    How “judgemental” and “intolerant.” Pretty soon this “slippery slope” will lead to something called “standards.” Must be those racist Tea Party people and Bush.

  • GreenBeretWay

    Where are you supposed to conceal a weapon? Wait,never mind don’t answer that.

    • toongoon

      I hate to say this but I think the only weapon they care about is attached.

      • GreenBeretWay

        I’m grateful the camera didn’t pan down.I don’t need to see if they ate their spinach.

        • toongoon

          If they did they wouldn’t have needed to pan down. ;-D

        • crosshr

          medicaid will pay for sex change in this city of Palosi.

          • GreenBeretWay

            Our TAX money pays for that crap.As for Pelosi I have suspicions she may have seen “The knife” Something about her just doesn’t seem quite right.

    • Good grief, that’s what I was thinkin’. Ohman,I need a bigger bottle. Does mind bleach come in 50 gallon drums?

    • ok y’all got to quit it!

      • toongoon

        Ok. I’ll call it a night. Buenos noches.

        • well don’t go toon. There’s still that little kitteh story Scoop just posted.. 😉

          • toongoon

            Oh I never go too far. 😉

      • poljunkie

        Hee hee.

        I think we needed this. We have had a tough couple of weeks.

        WHAT AM I SAYING? We’ve had A TOUGH four years + 13 days.

        • agreed sis. It’s fun to act like a complete juvenile. Yeah, we need it. (((()))s girlie.

          • poljunkie




          • poljunkie

            Did you go to the pig races!

            AND Charlies Daniels? It was last night, right?

            • Sigh, yeah it was last night. And Iknew you’d ask. But no, something came up and didn’t go. 🙁 Stuff happens. That’s just the way things seem to be lately. Sorry girlie.

              • poljunkie

                Oh no!!!!

                Booo hissssssss. I almost didnt ask. Well not to worry- you will find something fun to do…soon —-otherwise I will have to entertain you here. ♪♬♪ ✿ ❀ ❃

                I know what you mean about stuff happening. It seems endless. AND never GOOD news….at least on our end.

                • I love and appreciate your entertainment girlfriend. Thank you for that. ((((()))))s!!!

                • poljunkie

                  Someday, live music and we will pick up some flowers on the way!

                  (to throw at the band ha hahahaha)

                  Husbands can come with if they want!…

                • I’d love it. 🙂

              • toongoon

                Oh man, I was so looking forward to hearing about it. Now I’m bummed.

                • Sorry toon. I was looking forward to it too. 🙁

                • toongoon

                  Well, poljunkie has a pretty good act there. That should you keep you going until the next time. ;-D

                • poljunkie

                  I do a little dance number too…but unfortunately you cant see that!!!! 🙂

  • Constance

    How gross. This is just gross. I prefer to live in a community where modesty and basic social decency matters. I’m not interested in seeing lady parts or dude dangles on anybody else out in the streets. What, are these people just animals?

  • 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.

  • Susanna958

    I didn’t realize they were that far gone. Welcome to Sodom.

  • crosshr

    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

  • aPLWBinAK

    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.

  • stage9

    So indecency laws aren’t applicable in San Fransicko already?

  • David Boyes

    ha ha the city officials last name is …. wiener !!!!!!!!!!!! how appropriate !

  • SheerPolitics

    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.

  • crosshr

    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

    • nibblesyble


  • SavingtheRepublicdotcom

    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

  • nibblesyble


  • keyesforpres

    I think I would walk by ….point and then laugh hysterically and say, “Is that all ya got?!”

  • poljunkie

    RScoop–Thanks for helping to cheer us up tonight!

  • sjmom

    It’s about time!

  • Liberalism is a freak show as well… Disgusting!

  • TLaMana

    I could care less really. Just make sure there is an age limit.. no nudity if you are over 50 and/or 50lbs overweight.

  • bjohnson55

    Next will be a ban on stupidity and SF will turn into a ghost town.

  • white531

    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.

    • 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.

      • white531

        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.

    • poljunkie

      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.”

  • Jazzee

    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

  • FreeManWalking

    What’s with SF? Don’t they know they are a BIG part of California?

    Duh!!! Don’t Ban what you can TAX…

  • TitaniumEagle

    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

  • 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.

  • UnCL3

    I can’t even believe this is an issue…PUT YOUR F***IN’ CLOTHES ON, IDIOTS!

  • 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.

  • 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.”

  • tinlizzieowner

    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.
    😉 😉

  • GiantM


  • JimNEPA2_0

    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.

  • Rocco11

    Pelosi’s husband wishes he could ban nudity in his own home…

  • 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!

  • wodiej

    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.

  • Lee

    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.

  • The culture is circling the drain – but SF is already in the sewer. What a tragedy.

  • Haywoodjbl

    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..

  • Sober_Thinking

    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.

  • The news from Sodom.

  • DebbyX

    I’ve read the comments below.

    That about sums it up for me.

  • 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.)

  • Botzilla

    Always the people you least want to see naked wanting to be seen naked.

    • chatterbox365

      That’s for sure! After watching this news clip, it seems there is more sagging than bouce (or even dangle) roaming the streets of San Francisco.

  • chatterbox365

    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 [email protected]
