I think I hate San Francisco. - Page 196

post #2926 of 3008
It's for everyone. There's a general problem with public urination at Dolores Park. I'm with sugarbutch--it's happening anyway so the urinal makes sense to diminish the amount that's going on the grass or sidewalk. The "civic organizations" threatening legal action are probably the same people who are already trying to make it so that no one actually uses the park.

Why not put enclosed toilets there if there's such a need? It seems odd to have such an open thing out there?

If they won't walk to the bathrooms in the park, why would they walk to this?

Why? I would speculate that it's because that end of the park is at the top of a steep hill, and the bathrooms are in the center of the park. But whatever the reason, they apparently are using it.

First thought reading SB's comment was that the pee would just keep rolling downhill. Haha

So basically, the point is that SFers have regressed to pre-civilizational norms, and anyone who finds this regrettable is a reactionary or prude?

Yes, how terrible. All of these fascists trying to prevent the good, honest, freedom-loving folk of SF from engaging in public urination. I mean, imagine it. What kind of sick person do you have to be to insist that someone walk all the way to a bathroom rather than letting it fly as nature intended?

On the other hand, this is disturbingly sexist. Men are spared the torture of having to hold it while women are forced to walk for three minutes all the way to an actual bathroom. I demand that this gross inequity be addressed immediately.

In Hong Kong, there is a huge problem with mainland tourists coming to visit and urinating (or, occasionally, worse) on the streets. A few months ago, there was, effectively, a riot followed by a protest with 10,000+ people because some mainland family had let their 3 year-old urinate in public.

Congratulations, San Francisco!

Boring.

My son is 4 and even he uses the bathroom. However, one could see excusing a 3 year old. But these people in SF are grown men. What's their excuse?
post #2936 of 3008
I would guess that they're lazy, young, and heedless of the impact of their actions on others. Oh, and drunk, too.
