Up for review and debate in San Francisco: Public Sex Tents. Yay for progressive~ism!
The San Francisco Chronicle feels the need to weigh in:
Public sex tents? Now there's an idea that should have been shot down the second it was announced from the mouth of a member of the "leather community" in response to complaints about public sex at Folsom Street Fair and its smaller sibling fair, Up Your Alley.
Instead, it appears that at least one of our local leaders (Supervisor Bevan Dufty) has agreed to take the matter "under advisement."
Public sex isn't just lewd, it's illegal under state law. San Francisco officials and police have historically given the fairs broad leeway to self-police bawdy behavior, but that should have been revoked the moment that citizens complained. Instead, people are giving serious thought to ways to make the streets safe for public sex and unsafe for public decency.
Enough. This is a quality-of-life issue that should have been tackled years ago. Local leaders need to stop clowning around and insist that everyone obey the law.
Gee, ya think?
Posted here only as a cautionary tale with a few morals....one, that a little bit of "aw, a little fun never hurt no one" liberal bawdiness can quickly turn into government-protected, taxpayer-funded public sex tents in the city streets, with its users likely protected with a myriad of anti-discrimination laws.
Two, that Nancy Pelosi - the Speaker of the House, and possibly the most powerful person in America (it ain't baby Baracky staying up all night to delve into the minutia of health-care reform; he's not a details guy...or a big-picture guy...or...) represents this depraved modern-day Sodom. To her, and her constituents, public sex tents are an idea with merit, and worthy of debate.
And this is the women who is crafting national legislation that will dictate the future priorities of our nation for at least a generation. Like most of her senior colleagues, she is elected repeatedly from hardcore liberal districts, thus giving her and her cronies control over all the buttons of power.
So really - what kind of a health care policy - as well as which mandatory covered services (do I hear "gender transfer surgery"?) do you think Nancy will be forcing us to pay for? What type of energy mandates will we get from a women whose home state has essentially banned big-screen TVs from the homes of the proletariat? And what type of foreign policy will we get from a women whose district is famous for their anti-American, pro-anything-else marches and protests?
Think about a morality that feels that "public sex tents" are a fair issue of debate, and then think about what other abominations these people could impose upon the rest of the nation without blinking an eye.
Because in America 2010...these people are now our leaders.
