NSFW: Portland’s Freak Show Naked Bike Ride in Broad Daylight

THIS POST IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

Every year I bring up the Portland Naked Bike ride and ask, “why don’t the cops do something?” There IS a law against indecent exposure, ya know. In order for naked people to be told to put their clothes on, there has to be a showing that the nakedness is meant to titillate and that the nekkid person is doing it for some sort of sexual pleasure. I think I can speak with unqualified certainty that these kooks are getting their sexual jollies from shocking (even) Portlanders.

The Portland Police Commissioner, Sam Adams, has given the Naked Bike Ride a parade permit for a couple of years now. However that parade permit is for the night time event– you know, when the kids are in bed.


But for the last couple of years a large contingent have begun riding in the day time  for shock value and to get their jollies. They need to knock it off. It’s not cute, it’s not funny, it’s disgusting. It’s one thing to leave your dangling participle out there at night, it’s quite another to subject others to it during the day.

Maybe it’s just a precursor to the freak show that is the “Gay” Pride parade, but that’s no excuse.(more on the gay pride idiocy in another post).

I don’t like the Naked Bike Ride either nighttime nor daytime, but the cops should be directed to put a stop the day time event at the very least. Just because France, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and who knows who else does it doesn’t mean we should.

This guy left his links out there to share, so I am. See if you don’t agree, that it’s about time there was a crack down–so to speak–on AT LEAST the DAYTIME Naked Bike Ride:
