The Castro and San Francisco in general, is a place of freedom, expression and acceptance. But freedom, expression and acceptance does not mean anything goes under any circumstances. Our public spaces are for everyone and as a result it’s appropriate to have some minimal standards of behavior.
San Francisco supervisor Scott Wiener • Explaining the measure he introduced, which passed today, banning public nudity in the city of San Francisco. It was reportedly a response to repeated complaints about a group of frequently naked men in the city’s Castro district (As someone who visits the area often I can confirm that the sight has escalated discernibly in recent months — Chris @ SFB). There will be some exceptions made for major events, the annual LGBT Pride Parade in particular. The measure institutes a $100 maximum fine for a first-time offense, but would leave prosecutors with the ability to charge a third offense as a misdemeanor, carrying a $500 fine and 1-year prison sentence. Wiener’s opponents on the board argued the ban would cost police attention better served elsewhere. source

Dancing With the [CENSORED]: Nancy Grace has a moment

Nancy’s grace slipped tonight. Poor taste, sorry.  On tonight’s episode of “Dancing With the Stars,” Nancy Grace had a slight wardrobe malfunction. Faster than you can say “Casey Anthony trial,” producers had to cut to a “static shot of the audience” to prevent potential FCC freakouts. After the performance, Judge Bruno Tonioli quipped: “It was a bit top-heavy at times, my darling. And I got an eyeful! I couldn’t miss that. But it really is great to see you taking over the dance floor and performing.” Sleep tight, America! source

Evidence: Tasteful nudity more exciting to us than GOP also-ran debate
Right now you could be reading about the GOP. They had a debate tonight on Fox News, and based on who you ask, either Ron Paul or Herman Cain killed it. But we’re not going to talk about that — because we got distracted. When we read the WSJ article, we stumbled upon this link on the page: “Wearing Only a Smile, Nudists Seek Out the Young and the Naked.” Which features this photo. We imagine the photographer of this picture, Mr. Jason Henry, had a lot of fun figuring out new ways to shoot pictures to note that his subjects are naked without showing their yinyangs and whoosie-whatsits. Rick Santorum would not approve.

Everyday, about 50,000 new men are trying to get naked. What we’re doing is selling the naked men to a couple of websites – it’s an investment for us.
Chatroulette Founder Andrey Ternovskiy • Describing his plan to make his service, Chatroulette, profitable. Essentially, the naked men – a longstanding scourge of the video-chatting site – get parlayed off to sites like FriendFinder.com, where they’re making cash from referral traffic – $100,000 a month, unbelievably. “So, we’re actually getting revenue from naked men right now,” Ternovskiy says. Even though his site’s traffic has gone down considerably, he’s still making bank, because he’s smart. (from Fast Company’s sweet Tumblrsource (viafollow)
