I used to feel an impulse to think-through various public controversies as they arose.
More and more I tend to ignore.
I thought I'd be able to ignore SF's stupid nudist thing.
Then this SF Weekly header:
It's gonna cost us money!
Why doesn't the city just crack down? How large is the pro-nudist constituency?
Vagueness sells newspapers. It's like, "Nudism: Good of Bad?" But there are two completely separate issues:
1) The impact on the viewer of seeing a nude person; and,
2) The involuntary sharing of butt-juices and other crotch debris.
Obviously, number 1 is discussable. If the only impact of public nudity were visual not a lot of SF'ns would care.
Number 2 is intolerable.
No, you do not have the right to wipe your ass on my upholstery.
No, please don't turn every public transit seat into a toilet seat.
No, I don't want you leaking on my new pumps!
Go SFPD! Go City Attorney!
