San Francisco supervisor introduces legislation to restrict public nudity, at least sometimes
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Nudists in San Francisco might soon lose the freedom to bare it all ' at least some of the time.
Walking around naked is legal, but a city supervisor concerned about public health and sanitation introduced legislation Tuesday that would require nudists to put something under their bottoms if they take a seat in public.
Supervisor Scott Wiener's proposal would also require nudists to cover up when they are in a restaurant.
Wiener represents the city's Castro District, where a group of nudists is known to gather and walk around. He tells the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/rao7dr) he only wants to require that nudists show basic courtesy and decency to their fellow citizens, not open up a debate on the appropriateness of public nudity.
