San Francisco’s Castro District is in the grips of a debate over its longstanding tolerance of public nudity, as lawmaker Scott Wiener wants to end the era of letting it all hang out.

At a recent hearing, CPA Jeff Johnston backed the ban, saying making customers view the droopy bits of middle-aged guys was hurting his tax-prep business, and he didn’t “want to apologize and be embarrassed” for setting up his business in the Castro.

Well, a Queerty reader named Bill visited Mr. Johnston’s establishment and took a snapshot of his storefront, which features a mannequin in nothing but a jockstrap holding an oversized IRS 1040 and simulating sex with another leather-clad mannequin.

Bill writes:

I could be missing some fine points about people into leather, but I’m hard pressed to figure out how a client comfortable with Mr. Johnston’s storefront would be uncomfortable with some nudity. Of course, people speaking at public hearings often say whatever they think would sound convincing, regardless of the truth of it, so I’m just a tad skeptical of Mr. Johnston’s statements.

Actually, I would be a bit uncomfortable with Mr. Johnston’s storefront as a client, mainly because of the possibility of an audit—IRS agents are not noted for having a sense of humor.

What do you think? Is there a difference or is Johnson just being a big dummy?
