\Ah its so cute when all the homophobes get their panties in a wad when San Francisco gets mentioned.
As a father who lives in San Francisco I have to say that most of you do not have a single clue. The article is fairly succinct- this place is expensive to live in- houses and rents are expensive.
Many of our friends chose to move to the suburbs before having kids, but we didn't. We live in a wonderful neighborhood. My daughter walks to school everyday. She loves her school and is getting an excellent public education.
We are close to our wonderful Golden Gate Park, and beaches, and the Presidio. I don't know what the weather is like for you today, but today is a beautiful sunny warm day.
What you will find is that there are lots of families in San Francisco- but the drain of families to the suburbs is something that has been going on for at least the last 60 years. That is why many of the Italian families who live here up until the 50's or 60's now live down the Peninsula.
So the problem with families in San Francisco is the price of real estate- and there is a reason for that- we have about 36 square miles of space that cannot be expanded.
Our wonderful system of Capitalism works on supply and demand- there is a finite supply and an always increasing demand for real estate- so the prices keep going up.
good for y'all. Teach 'em how to swim.
