  • Looking to spread your San Francisco values? With your “woke” SF morality, will New Hope streets soon be covered with homeless people, needles & excrement? This is the way it starts, turning a blind eye to depraved behavior or worse yet, accepting it as normal. What you call uptight, many of us call decent.

  • Or as we call it in San Francisco, a Wednesday. “Hello, I’d like to report a naked person” said nobody in SF ever. It’s more like “Ha, looks like somebody is enjoying the sun to the max” or “Did he really have to wear a cock-ring? LOL” or at worst “Hmmm, I’m feeling a little insecure about my own endowment”.

    Seriously, why be so uptight, New Hope?
