a millieu of intolerance. that's not going to happen up in the bay area.

I'm not saying bad stuff linked to the things you said don't exist anywhere else. I'm simply saying San Francisco isn't different when it comes to right and wrong any more so than most cities in the country. There is still plenty of racism, plenty of hate, plenty of bigotry, plenty of silencing others, etc. San Franciscans just think they are unique in that department. I've lived in a lot of places and traveled a lot of the world and San Francisco isn't special in this regard.

What you are trying ti imply is untrue. Not cool. I didn't "come up" with anything. Sorry but parades and events where people are dressed in sexual bondage and half naked showing their private parts on the street, where the largest man boy love association has it's orgins, is not something I need to come up with. The place is depraved and has that reputation for a reason. Even if you don't like it.

I call BS.
where is the proof that people living in the bay area support pedophilia or that gay people living in the bay area are pedarests or support pedophilia. NAmbla was formed 40 years ago and is not supported by mainstream lbqt orginizations


are you aware that in Europe there are nude beaches where people show more of their body than at the Folsom street fair.


have you seen Michelangelos david? is that depraved and pornographic? or is it the worlds greatest sculpture?

I asked you a pointed question in the context of your inability to articulate your position and you have chosen instead to deflect. So, we can take your answer to the question, “do you think your position is defensible?” as “no.”

Good to know. Moving on. 😀

The only time I've seen a man punch a woman was in San Francisco outside a BART station in Mission. You've got to be joking me saying all those things don't exist in San Francisco and it's just a utopia of acceptance and peace. The crime rate doesn't back that up. It's a city where even if you leave groceries in your car, it's likely to get smashed and stolen. I'm not saying crime doesn't happen in other places, I'm saying your idea that it's all love and acceptance and only intellectuals who love each other is BS. Have you seen any festival or earth day how trashed the parks are left... yeah we care so much about the environment as long as it doesn't require actual work from us.
They like to block out what they think doesn't exist and live in their bubble.

If you want to start a new topic on this thought, then do so.

Again... If you would like to start a new topic regarding nudity in relation to Europeans, then do so. I have no experience nor knowledge with that culture, I will refrain.

What in the world does this have to do with live people, dressing with their private parts poking out of black leather while shaking themselves? The Folsom Street Fair is highly BDSM themed. It's a sexually perverted event geared towards the depraved. Not sure why you cannot grasp this. This is all done in publc, around children. Anyone can joing. Their behavior is akin to animals.

I responded to a specific post of what another poster said. That is the context. Otherwise I call BS on your hijacks

If you want to start a new topic, feel free to do so. Your hijacks and hijinks are getting old

Do I have to go over this again? I articulated my point clearly and likealady understood it and replied. You just don't have the cognitive abilities to follow along or comprehend what people actually post.

Yeah San Frans overrated, that's for sure. Americas overratted. Disgusting.
Yes someone posted it in The San Francisco Trash/Needles/Poop in the Streets Containment Thread. Truly disgusting and disturbing.

I've observed SF being highly overrated since I lived here in 2009 and it's only become more overrated.

Default Jester and Gizmo are right

There ought to be a BART line serving the western neighborhoods of SF.
BART is over 40 years old now, it's built extensions in eastern Contra Costa county,
eastern Alameda county, even to the airport down in San Mateo county.
All that construction in the suburbs, but nothing done for SF residents
since the system opened, even though we pay the same BART sales tax
the suburban counties do.
Clearly, BART was intended as a means of funneling suburban commuters
into the Financial District. That's okay, but doing nothing for the SF
constituents is not, not when we help pay for the system,
and a western line would certainly be heavily used.
A number of elections ago, BART board member James Fang broached
the idea of "BART to the beach" (a BART line under Geary Blvd).
Yeah, excellent idea... except that he'd already been on the
BART board for nearly a quarter-century... he could've
tried to do that for his constituents decades earlier.
It was good to see him go down to defeat.

Ha! Cheers to you! Your feeble attempts at rebuttals are well documented. Cheers! You’ve done the best you can at presenting your unhinged arguments as relevant. Let it be recorded in internet records forever!��
