Pretty cool how we can’t eat indoors at food places right now, but years of anti-homeless urban design mean there’s almost nowhere comfortable to eat outdoors either.

@Ricardus I'm honestly slightly baffled why we spend our energy making our public spaces /actively hostile/ to the homeless instead of, y'know, helping them get back on their feet. Which would /also/ make them go away!

I was at a restaurant in some city once, and they had /locks on the bathrooms/. To keep homeless people out.

@IceWolf yup. everything we've been told is wrong.
