idec if a homeless motherfucker has an obvious drug habit, imma give him money. CEOs of the companies that make shit i buy have drug habits and i give them my money all the time

people are very concerned about drug use but only if you're poor

apparently the only acceptable way to support a drug habit is through ten layers of bureaucracy

a dude on the street needs to numb out far more than a cokehead CEO, let him buy a beer

and then after you give him the money, go to town halls and force your city to actually help the homeless instead of criminalizing them

but if you get mad at the homeless for wanting money, and also don't get civically active and improve things for the homeless? you're the asshole

Follow

for real though, if i hadn't House MD'ed my own chronic illness, if i hadn't got disability benefits to keep me going while i House MD'ed that shit, if i'd missed one stroke of luck, i'd be homeless too. this system is broke

how many people aren't smart enough to House MD their own chronic illness? how many people on the street were one diagnosis away from living a "normal" life? and y'all want to make them live like monks before you help? fuck that

people act like the homeless need to atone before they deserve help, when the "successful" people in our society need to atone for creating homelessness in the first place

it's hard to kick a drug habit when you're financially stable and have a home full of people who love you. how you expect someone to kick the habit when they're cold, hungry, and sleeping in an alleyway? gtfoh

the thing i find that helps homeless folks the most is saying hi and talking to them like they're normal people, because they are

every time i do that, they look surprised at first, and that is a serious condemnation of our society

@amydentata somebody somewhere thinks it's probably a good idea to have them literally to live like monks to help

@blondtradgard the thing i find that helps homeless folks the most is saying hi and talking to them like they're normal people, because they are

@blondtradgard yeah a lot of times i tear up afterward, but i keep doing it because it's good for my own humanity too

@amydentata @blondtradgard

It was the nicest thing to be treated like a human being when I was sleeping on my corner.

@blondtradgard

Oh my Yes. Sometimes the negative is where it's at.
