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!
