Come to Seattle, Get Nekkid in the Parks (genghis)

From the same Seattle Parks Department that banned (or tried to) beach bonfires earlier this year, due to their effect on global warming, we get this new edict proclaiming that they’re dropping their plans to ban nudity in Seattle public parks, according to an article from The Seattle Times.

“Nudists relax.

Seattle Parks and Recreation will drop its pursuit of a proposal that would make public nudity in parks subject to prosecution for criminal trespass.

And, in a nod to tolerance, Seattle's parks commissioners asked parks officials to explore the possibility of a clothing-optional beach in the city.”

Well it’s about damn time. But how did this come about you ask?
“A crowd "asserting the right to be naked outside" appeared at the meeting of the volunteer advisory board, said Dewey Potter, parks spokeswoman.

"This is how we learn and find out what people want," she said.”

No word yet from the opposition group “People Who Don’t Want to See Flabby, Pasty Aging Baby Boomers Naked in Parks or Anywhere Else for that Matter” (PWDWSFPABBNPAEM). Political analysts attribute the lack of the opposition group’s success in upholding the ban due to the fact that they didn’t have a catchy acronym for their name. Also, what kind of parents name their daughter Dewey? Cruel ones, I guess.

Not much to add except this little gem:

” The proposal grew out of concern about a World Naked Bike Ride event on July 12, one of three held in Seattle this year to draw attention to oil dependency.”

SORTA BUT NOT REALLY UPDATE: This is under the same city administration that is attempting to ban legally permitted handguns from city parks in direct violation of the state constitution according to the Washington State Attorney General. Story here.

So I guess it all boils down to what's acceptable to be "packin'" in a city park. Or maybe "unpackin."

WARNING: NSFW pics under the fold. Actually, not safe for anywhere pics under the fold.

So let’s recap:

Aaaagh! My eyes! Must avert or scoop them out with a spoon!

Thank gawd! Much more soothing to my burned retinas.
