Anti-Wiener Legislation Released
Politician Scott Wiener is terrible when it comes to solving Castro community problems of all sorts, but especially when the matter is our public spaces. He's been in office almost two years and has yet to hold an open-to-all public meeting in the Castro.
He's like Mitt Romney in that he does not like to be publicly challenged, is awkward in social graces and public situation, and prefers to speak only to slices of the community either behind closed-doors at his City Hall office, or at groups that bar public participation such as the Merchants of Upper Market Castro.
The first public discussions he held about sweeping legislative changes to sleeping out in Jane Warner and Harvey Milk Plazas, and his useless law about nudist placing a towel under their butts before sitting down, were at City Hall hearing after months of rising rancor and confusion in the community. He makes no effort to find solutions through community engagement beyond his donors and fans.
On Monday, November 5 at 10:00 AM at City Hall, the first chance for all stakeholders concerned about nudity in the Castro will take place at a Board of Supervisors meeting. Not the best way to find an equitable and fair solution that all will be able to accept and live with.
Up for discussion on November 5 will be this frightening piece of legislation outlawing public nudity. I believe this legislation is dangerous to San Francisco's tolerance for public nudity at the Dore Alley and Folsom Street Fairs, and the Bay to Breakers race. Oh, I also don't think the ban would do much to stop our fab and wonderful naked guys and gals from disrobing.
