Ignoring pleads, San Francisco will introduce low-income subsidies for Trans residents while not increasing overall low-income subsidies. Priorities!

The Our Trans Home SF program will begin providing the subsidies through a two-year pilot program starting next month.

The mayor's office estimates that about 55 San Francisco households will receive the subsidies, providing $560,000 in direct financial assistance annually, in an effort to help curb homelessness in the city.

"The ongoing housing crisis in our City continues to impact our most marginalized communities, including members of our trans community who are eighteen times more likely to experience homelessness," Breed said in a statement.

"Meanwhile, the community continues to be under constant attack by the Federal Administration which is attempting to legalize discrimination and erase transgender people," she said. "The Our Trans Home SF program is a vital step forward in ensuring our trans community is housed, safe, and can thrive in San Francisco. As we work to end homelessness in our City, we must also work to keep people housed and this program will help us do just that."
Lol, so uses the President as an excuse to do nothing about the general homeless crisis and instead allocates a specific niche fund for Transgenders in an area where they have a high acceptance rate. (after saying there was no money at all hmmm)

What about all those people begging the mayors and governor to increase funding to get tons of homeless in general off the street?

This doesn't do anything about the overall problems, this was only done to score Clown World points, but the only thing you can get with those points is a free helping of bubonic plague, measles, and the flu.

Clearly this will also solve the trash mountain problem as well.

It's good that Califonia Zedong has it's priorities straight.

Except they don't. If you are struggling over there and a member of Gaf I advice you to please try leaving for your own sanity.

Meanwhile. more homeless people are on the streets that may not have been homeless if the government actually helped them.

Some democrats really love auctioning away other peoples money for bribes/votes to whatever flavor of the month victim group they are currently brown nosing. I am not sure its a winning strategy

Its a shame so much of a beautiful state like California is riddled with morons.
That is not a real person that said that, I refuse to believe someone can be that idiotic. Not happening, no way, sir!

there have been no rights taken away by our government for anyone.

Edit: talking about the sentence you quoted.

Well, that's one way to do as little as possible about the situation while still getting as much possible credit. It's actually kind of disgusting how manipulative you have to be to come up with a solution like this. Do as little as possible and target a community that has historically been marginalized so nobody can safely give you shit about it.

More importantly do something that is a facially unconstitutional violation of equal protection so you don't actually have to do anything once the courts get around to this. You just get another excuse to point at when voters ask why you've done nothing.

'Well we tried, but those evil federal courts wouldn't allow us to discriminate with our housing policy'

Of course with such a tiny amount, it's likely no one even bothers challenging the law anyway.

Who knew SF had so many generous handout policies.

Then again, aren't most people in SF and the outskirts skewed to sweet jobs and million dollar homes? You got the cash to spread the wealth and west coast liberals are all about sharing. So got to live with that view and pony up.

When liberal elites talk all this good shit about socialism, it's really code for taxing the middle class to pay for it, and always has been.

Otherwise, why don't they take a social stance and lead by example and start handing their wealth out without having to wait for when the laws to tell them to.

Hint: because it never gets to the point for those laws to tell them to, and they know this.

Champagne socialists.

In other news, mass numbers of homeless people have been spotted buying wigs and makeup. Seriously if your homeless how are you not gonna pretend to be trans to take advantage of this, your desperate and out of options.
