it's expensive as hell out here, like seriously, even fast food is at least a dollar more here than on the other side of the bay, and you have to pay a lot for a shitty place to live, parking sucks because you have to pay for it a lot of places, then there's a whole bunch of uptight SJW liberals, there's traffic, and there are a bunch of wierdos too.
Way too many insane/homeless people. San Francisco and the Bay Area seems to want to hoard as many as they can that it becomes ridiculous. City always smells like fucking piss and shit. i've seen homeless people shit and piss outside BART and MUNI stops. SF is losing its culture exponentially fast to to the tech boom.
This place is a steaming pile of horseshit. It is one of the most unwelcoming first-world places I've ever been. The culture is obnoxious and overbearing. nobody really cares about one another but they still walk around like they're morally superior to everyone else in the country. people are dicks but portray themselves as "liberals/progressives" to show off to their friends how "enlightened they are."
Everyone is uber-PC and obsessed with identity politics and is way too obnoxiously political and go to protests/demonstrations for no fucking reason and block up the traffic. You'll get fired for making a simple joke thanks to the rabid feminazis and their STEM beta orbiters.
If you love this place and feel like you belong, then you should re-evaluate what it is to be human. People are just inconsiderate jerks and prices are too damn high.
SF is fucking cold and windy all the time. If I'm gonna tolerate all those SJWs liberals, I need some nice weather like in LA. I'm originally from LA, and as shitty as LA is, SF is 10x worse. Driving in SF is the most stressful driving i have done (and i've fucking sat in the 405 in SoCal for 4 fucking hours), and the people in SF are extremely self centered and narcissistic. And all the sport fans are band wagoners. i blame the techies, but the NIMBY-ness of the residents is stupid as fuck. i saw residents throw piss and shit at a google bus lmao.
Also, stupid as fuck NIMBY residents keep housing/renting costs so fucking high bc they refuse to approve residential development and increase housing supply, in the name of combating "racist gentrification" lmao. Not surprised they don't get basic supply and demand, they're mostly communist SJW fucks who think Marxism is a gift from god.
SF is super crowded, parking is hell, and personal space is really uncomfortable.
Also SF is full of butt-ugly women. There are way too many men here especially from the south bay. Most are white or asian nerds who lack confidence. Too many artsy dues with no jobs. And so many extremely flamboyant, aggressive gays that turn off even most of my LGBT friends. Ratio is bad and even the ugly girls think they are hot in SF, when they wouldn't even get into a club in NYC or LA. Too many girls with tattoos, weird piercings, smokers, hippy type, etc. Too many fobs. Have you guys been to west oakland or chinatown? That place has the weirdest looking chinese people than the dirtiest part of flushing, NY.
I've heard from countless people about how much they don't like the nightlife in SF and want to move back to LA. It seems like SF is especially bad. as a girl, you can get into clubs dressed much worse than LA. It's not a secret that the women of the SF Bay Area up to the Pacific Northwest are mostly ugly, and have attitudes from hell. bc they are so ugly and can't get laid, they become super SJW/radical feminist and rail on how the "patriarchy" body-shames them lmao. i even met several "fat acceptance movement activists" there. Also SF takes being a sanctuary city to the extreme, with an extreme tolerance for illegal immigrants. People were in the streets cheering the kate steinle jury verdict lmao.
You'll get used to it eventually, and they become normal after a while, but whenever I visit my family back home in LA or cousins in Austin, TX, I think to myself "WHERE THE *** DID ALL THESE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE COME FROM?" but in reality it's just because I'm used to ugliness...
You know what's sad though? A lot of the girls in SF are transplants, from bumfucked somewhere, and when they got here, they adopted that shit attitude too. A lot of them think that SF is the best thing there is (probably it's the ONLY thing that resembles a city comparing to where they came from). I doubt any of them has been anywhere else.
People say LA is superficial as fuck, but SF is more superficial, in a different, more nefarious way. People care too much about being "liberal" and "progressive" and hating on Republicans/anyone who even leans right of center. I'm not even that conservative -- I supported John Kasich during the 2016 primary. Even then, I'm treated like the second coming of Hitler because I'm not a hard-left Democrat. The engineers and venture snobs that just talk about each round of funding at every restaurant 24/7 all make six-figure salaries, so them being "liberal" is just for show. Fake as fuck.
The residents are hypocrites in their personal lives and fail to live up to their liberal ideals. All just virtue signaling. Pseudo-intellectual limousine liberal fucks who think they are smart for using big words. Fucking degenerates.
I can't fucking wait until I transfer out of California. My goal as of now is a metro area in Texas, With my fucking salary, I could afford a nice-ass house in Dallas or Houston instead of living in a fucking expensive-ass-shit box next to a "gender-fluid" freak.
Fuck the SF Bay Area.
Edit: Good comment by DeepLearning: "I hate the professional/tech culture in silicon valley/SF... 22 year old wannabe CEOs running around, overzealous use of the word 'disrupt,' etc.... You CANNOT avoid the constant tech culture insanity. People pitching or talking about their shitty startups or whatever. As a young professional, you are going to have interactions with these types of people."
