Taxpayers foot bill to ghettoize gays

It seems that something terrible has happened -- society has become too gay-friendly. So gay-friendly, in fact, that same-sex couples and families are moving out of gay ghettos like San Francisco's Castro district into "straight" neighborhoods. Well, something's got to be done about that. And the taxpayers should have to pay for it.

The city, meanwhile, is spending $100,000 on a plan aimed at keeping the area's gay identity intact.

Wow, isn't that thoughtful of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors? I wonder why they're being so generous with the taxpayers' money.

"Having a specific neighborhood politicians can point to, can go to and shake hands or kiss lesbian babies, has really solidified the gay vote, our political muscle," said longtime community activist Tommi Avicolli Mecca at a forum in November.

No kidding.
