At the top of the Cultural Marxist, pecking order sits the most oppressed identity group in what’s left of America. Transsexuals are so put upon that San Francisco will pay them $1,200 per month to be who they are:
The Guaranteed Income for Trans People (GIFT) Program will provide low-income transgender residents with $1,200 each month, up to 18 months to help address financial insecurity within the community. …
The city also said that the new pilot program is the first guaranteed income initiative to focus solely on transgender people and will provide 55 eligible participants with temporary income.
The first? What about Palm Springs? In any case, we can be sure that it won’t be the last.
Taxpayers owe oppressed transsexuals a lot more than $1,200/month:
Additionally, the city said it will provide the same individuals with “wrap-around” direct services, such as gender-affirming medical and mental health care, case management, specialty care services and financial coaching.
When it comes to mental health care, the transgender community really is in need.
SF Mayor London Breed presents the pretext for the handouts:
“We know that our trans communities experience much higher rates of poverty and discrimination, so this program will target support to lift individuals in this community up.”
The notion that there is discrimination against rather than in favor of hyperprivileged transsexuals in the gay/liberal mecca San Francisco doesn’t pass the laugh test. If poverty were the real issue, they would just give the money to the poor, even if there is a link between mental illness and poverty.
A study from 2015 managed to find that 33% of California transsexuals were living in poverty, according to a bureauweenie in the San Francisco Office of Transgender Initiatives. Surprisingly, Biden’s handlers have not yet created a similar department at the cabinet level to help spend our money.
The city also noted that the percentage among transgender people who are also Black, Indigenous and People of Color is even higher.
Liberals love the idea of paying people not to be white, with money confiscated mainly from whites. Those who complain are “racists,” just as those who complain about programs that pay people to be transsexual are “transphobes.”
