Scott Wiener strikes again

Like his attempt to restrict initiative rights, Supervisor Wiener's proposal on nudism---requiring the exhibitionists to put a towel or a napkin under their privates when they sit in public---is wrong-headed, demonstrating once again that you can have a Harvard degree and still be dumb. 

Instead of introducing an ordinance making public nudity clearly illegal in San Francisco---which, you understand, might be considered unprogressive by the city's lunatic fringe---his proposal accommodates behavior that's simply unacceptable.

Of course Tim Redmond at the Bay Guardian thinks Wiener's misguided ordinance is a sensible idea.

We just need an ordinance making "bad naked" illegal. if you are hot, you can be naked.

Sadly, I have never seen a "hot" person choose to be naked in public (outside, perhaps, of the rare hottie at Folsom Street Fair or other special events.) Perhaps good looks and brains DO go together, at least in this regard.

I think Wiener is well-intentioned, but he needs to grow a pair (but please, don't expose them....) and legislate a ban on publicly nudity, with exceptions carved out for special events. Nobody wants to see these exhibitionists, whose only desire is to shock and offend.

This is NOT a civil rights issue, nobody has the "right" to walk around naked. If they wore raincoats and flashed children, we'd arrest them. So how is it that they can ditch the raincoat and we allow the identical behavior?

There is an article by an Italian economist Carlo Cipolla The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity that uses humor to couch some very real truths, one being that in any given group of humans, no matter what their education level, a certain number will be stupid.

Weiner is just one example. There are many, many others being paid by the San Francisco taxpayers.

Actually, you have that all wrong. The stupid ones are the narcissistic naked people who think they have a right to hang out (literally) in a public space with no clothes on.

They simply want attention. They should be arrested.

Scott Weiner is right for bringing up this legislation.

No, you're the one who has it wrong. Instead of introducing legislation to make it illegal in SF, Wiener's proposal merely makes them put towels under their privates when they sit in public places. Of course they should be arrested, but that's a complicated process now because the present law is inadequate.
