William Saletan of Slate.com made the argument a couple of weeks back that the then proposed ordinance against public nudity in San Francisco (since passed) was further proof the gay movement, which once represented diversity, tolerance, sexual freedom and all the other symbols of a liberated people, had become, in a word, bourgeois. And the fact that the biggest critics weren't the closeted homosexual men and women on the right but - gasp! - gay men and women themselves:
"If you want to know what the gay mainstream looks like, watch the hearings, which the board of supervisors has posted online. You’ll see old men and middle-aged moms, gentlemen in suits and dudes in T-shirts, stepping to the microphone to say enough is enough. There’s the well-appointed yuppie who says he and his partner just want “our neighborhood back.” The representative from the local merchants association who says 17 of 20 nearby businesses, many of them gay-owned, have reported that the naked guys are hurting sales. The hairdresser outraged at the outdoor “nudist living room” that’s alienating his clients who “complain to me when they come into the salon. They are offended by the visual display, and some are hesitant to return.”"
It's not surprising, really, that the LGBTQI movement, at the very moment that the same-sex
Luckily, the nudists are having none of it. According to RawStory.com, they plan on continuing their public displays even after the ban goes into effect:
"The law would make it an offence for anyone over the age of five to “expose his or her genitals, perineum or anal region on any public street, sidewalk, street median, parklet or plaza”. Lloyd Fishbach, who was standing naked at the corner of Castro and Market, said it should be his choice to dress as he wants, where he wants. “There is always someone who is not going to like what you are doing,” he said. “I live in the Castro and I’ve been doing this since first grade. This is just a bunch of uptight Americans. But I’ll still keep doing it and if I see the cops coming I will run and hide.”"
They will, of course, be crushed by the weight of Supervisor Scott Weiner, the ban's author and Castro district representative, and his moral goons. And with it, one more thing will wilt on the vine of the modern day homosexual movement, a remnant of time and place long since paved over by the gay latte-sipping middle-class.
