No Nudes!

New, 1 comment

The Man is trying to keep the nudes down! California park officials can "enforce a ban on nudity at any state beach, even in areas that have been informally designated as clothing optional." But what about tan lines! Warn, cite or arrest: it's their decision. The ban has already taken effect, but officers are the ones who decide how severe the punishment should be. The ruling doesn't apply to federal parkland like Baker Beach (WHEW). Totally pissed about this? Then you're possibly in luck. Lawyers for the Naturist Action Committee are going to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court. "It's time for the government to realize that nude sunbathing and skinny-dipping has a long tradition in this country," said Allen Baylis, an attorney and officer of the committee. [SF Gate]
