San Francisco Mayor Guarantees Income for Transexuals
Transexuals continue to garner significant concern from Democratic politicians even though they only represent a small sliver of the population. Here’s a prime example, San Francisco Democratic Mayor London Breed is watching her city face a 7.4% increase in violent crimes and the city is seeing massive homelessness. So what is the mayor focused on?
Mayor Breed has kicked off a new guaranteed income program for those who identify as members of the opposite sex.
You’ve got to be kidding.
Breed announced the “Guaranteed Income for Trans People” (GIFT) program on Wednesday, and she proudly claimed 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The breed may have been using a popular but outdated seven-year-old survey backed by transsexual activist groups. They used the survey to challenge that 33% of transsexual Californians lived in poverty, which is almost three times the normal poverty rate of the general population.
And just like that, the city has now allocated $2 million over two years for GIFT, which will provide 55 low-income transsexuals with $1,200 every month for up to 18 months.
This is even better than typical government handouts. The cash designated for this group of qualifying transsexuals is unconditional. That means it can be spent on anything, including drugs and alcohol. Nobody has to report anything about the spending of this handout.
KRON4 News reported that the program will provide those in the program with “direct services” such as “gender affirming” medical care (i.e., hormone therapy, genital mutilation, hair removal, and prosthetics), mental health care, and financial coaching.
The program is a new partnership between the Transgender District Lyon-Martin Community Health Services and the City and County of San Francisco.
All while the violence in the city continues to rise and more and more people are without homes.
