Protest against San Francisco nudity ban

On Friday, February 1, 2013 the nudity ban in San Francisco came into effect. A number of body freedom activists held a protest outside City Hall to mark the occasion and 4 were arrested.

Gypsy Taub, who hosts a local cable program devoted to the nudist cause, said “No matter what, we're going to continue practicing body freedom. In a society that's repressed and crazy, that glorifies war and at the same time criminalizes the human body ... nudity is a political statement."

San Francisco banning public nudity where once the flower children and hippys once abound? How did that happen? Their culture's long-time history supported freedom of speech. I own Arcadia Nudist Resort in WA. Guests hug me and thank me for this body freedom. They experience true relaxation just to "BE" and "BE" OK in their own skins. Nothing to prove, no defense by wearing of the right or wrong clothes. No judgement of body sizes and types. Where does the line end and begin for healthy acceptance and well-being?

Superintendent Wiener, Wiener Superintendent, in SF it's as interchangeable as piicthng and catching.Tam, hope your chills, aches & malaise are of the 24 hr variety and on their way out of town.
