Kink.com is facing community opposition for their purchase of San Francisco's State Armory and Arsenal building, a 200,000-square-foot landmarked building in the Mission District. Kink.com is an online fetish film company devoted to bondage and sadomasochism, and the area is zoned for this sort of use.

According to ABC local news, a protest was organized on February 7th by a group called the Mission Armory Collective who marched in front of the Armory. Though Kink.com has only moved 9 blocks from their former location, a few neighbors are reacting badly:

Sam Ruiz, Mission Armory Collective: "That is not the appropriate place for Kink.com. It's in the hub of a residential community, the gateway to the Mission District."

Marc Holcomb, San Francisco Resident: "Just having the thought in my head that I'm right next to this, living right next to this is nasty." http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=local&id=5017811

Please take the time to support Kink.com!
