San Francisco Has New 'Open-Air' Toilet

San Francisco Has New 'Open-Air' Toilet

The fanatical leftists that currently rule San Francisco have defined deviancy down so low it is now positively subterranean. A city council that has no problem forcing Christian businesses to participate in “wedding” ceremonies that fly in the face of their religious belief can’t seem to require other citizens to use the bathroom in private and not in view of other, more civilized residents.

Fox News reports the latest example is the “open–air” urinal in recently refurbished Dolores Park. And open–air is one of the few accurate descriptions one can find in connection with the actions of San Francisco government.

The facility is a semi–circular concrete wall about a foot high, topped with a wire fence.

The urinal offers about as much privacy as a chicken coop and directly faces the streetcar line. A sheet of opaque plastic partially covers the front of the pee pavilion so mass transit passengers won’t get a view that’s more than they bargained for as they pass the park.

People in the park aren’t so lucky.

The tinkle trellis doesn’t use any complicated machinery that local savages and customers might vandalize. Instead it’s gravity fed: participants stand over a large hole that opens directly into an underground sewer line.

This also means as the pee–pee goes down–down the odor comes up–up.

Dolores Park re–opened in January and, according to some sources, “on a sunny Saturday it can host between 7,000 and 10,000 people.” The city would require a business or an arena hosting that many people in a single day to provide adequate restroom facilities to accommodate nature’s call.

Yet the municipal answer is a hole in the ground that’s supposed to “address the littering and public urination issues that were rampant at the park before the renovation," explains San Francisco Recreation and Park Department spokeswoman Sarah Madland.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to build indoor bathrooms that both sexes could use in privacy?

Not in San Francisco. In no time at all a public bathroom would be transformed into a dangerous cesspool where children and women could not safely enter alone. It would be taken over by drug addicts, criminals and the homeless, because the city’s “leadership” is only interested in enforcing ideological conformity and not social conformity.

Instead of municipal policy being shaped to protect and encourage the law–abiding and decent, San Francisco policy enables the anti–social and the disruptive.

So offended San Francisco taxpayers are left paying for an open–air urinal in a city where public urination is supposedly against the law.
