Naked Partisanship


Last Tuesday, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted to ban nudity in the famously free-living city. The motion, which still has to pass a second vote, would fine people for displaying their genitalia or rear end in public. (Breasts, however, are exempt.) Before the motion went to the board, a two-hour public meeting brought out both pro-nudity and anti-nudity voices to argue their sides. Click above for some of the more unabashed rhetoric.
