    San Francisco's Board of Supervisors is considering banning nudity in public, but before the supes could, a City Hall hearing room received a full-frontal eyeful.
    Supervisor Scott Wiener is seeking to ban the infamous naked guys in his Castro District. His legislation received an initial hearing on Tuesday, the highlight of which was a "naked activist" stripping down in public comment to prove her point.

    Gypsy Taub has a television program in which she conducts interviews while naked, according to SFist. On Monday, Taub used her two minutes of public comment to remove her clothing in protest of Wiener's nudity ban.
    The display won her applause but also had her removed from chamber.
    "Yes to the Declaration of Independence! Down with Scott Wiener!" Taub shouted, as a sheriff's deputy escorted her out of the hearing chamber.
    The legislation could be voted into law as soon as Nov. 20.
