#San Francisco

San Francisco is not a utopia.

I live about 45 minutes from there. I’ve been too many times to count. San Francisco can be beautiful. San Francisco has failed it’s people. Far too many outsiders see San Francisco as a utopia. They don’t just accept queer people (like me) - they encourage them. They have neighborhoods that cater to so many cultures. They are home to some of the biggest companies in the world. All this is great, but San Francisco has failed. I took a drive a week ago to see the city before the shelter in place lifts. I turned a corner in my car and I saw the Transamerica period. It’s a beautiful building. Not even a mile away is Salesforce Tower. You know what ruined the view? I saw people experiencing homelessness lined up for the food bank. What the fuck? How is this allowed? The Transamerica pyramid and a line (a very long one at that) for people that can’t afford food in the same view. How? HOW can anyone see this and not be bothered that a city that serves as a home to companies that have created BILLIONAIRES is letting people sleep on the streets and be unable to afford food? Nobody, and I mean nobody, needs a billion fucking dollars. You argue that poor San Francisco isn’t the “real” San Francisco. You’re sorely mistaken. That’s as real as it gets. Instead of inviting another company to move in and make the poor even poorer, house your fucking people. There is no reason I should the epitome of wealth and the epitome of poor in the same view. San Francisco, I love you but you have failed.
