Screw "culture" which is really just the illusion of permanence. Culture, like everything else, changes and evolves... transforms. The only people worried about the the destruction of the "culture" of SF are Luddites who forever wish to remain in the past.  

Also, I accept absolutely no "responsibility for making changes where I live so that everybody who wants to be here, can". You have no claim on any "right" of being here. If you wish to be here, or any place else for that matter, you'll need to do so on your own accord and not encumber somebody else to make it possible for you to be here. IOW you either can do it or get the fuck out!

When you decide to settle down into an area and then proceed to sink all of your wealth into your dwelling you do so at a risk - a risk that development of your area will go well and people will want to live there. That ups how valuable your property may become. But it's a two way street - you're property can go up and it can go down. To call on others to sacrifice because your guestimation and risk didn't work out is nothing short of whining!

The article's speculation about why tech is moving to SF is faulty too. If it's true that "low distribution costs by using iOS's app store and Facebook" and it's easier for lots of small companies to find real estate then why bitch and moan about the price of real estate in the city. Just move your operations to Bakersfield or any other "cheaper to live in" place.
Today, the tech industry is apparently on track to destroy one of the world's most valuable cultural treasures, San Francisco, by pushing out the diverse..

Women, nay people, get paid exactly what they are worth. Otherwise, at like 25% off most businesses would hire only women. That doesn't happen and what does that tell you? See the first sentence...

When are we gonna stop accepting stupid excuses like "didn't grasp what he did" when somebody like this does something like he did? Can we cut off his head and use the same excuse that we "didn't grasp what we did"?
It was just before the start of class and the hallways were packed as usual with students at their lockers or chatting with friends.

This is really bullshit! I don't follow this at all. Follow my logic. Tell me where I'm wrong....

Supposedly the law is concerned that (from the article) "Many abortion doctors do not have admitting privileges". Well why is that a problem? Well the obvious answer is in case something goes horribly wrong with the procedure. There's no other logical reason. If the procedures goes great well there's no need for the patient to be admitted right? Even if something goes slightly wrong there's no rush to be admitted to the hospital right now. Find a doctor who has admitting privileges and go to the hospital. Naw, it's only if something horrible has gone wrong and needs to be attended to right now that one needs admitting privileges right now right?

But wait a second! What exactly is admitting privileges anyway and why are they needed? Replace the doctor with me, or you. You're with this chick and she's preggers. Suddenly she's having a miscarriage and nobody else is around. So you, being a good Samaritan and all, put her in your car and drive some 80 miles to the nearest hospital. This is Texas after all... Now you ain't got no dern admitting privileges now do ya partner! What are they gonna do? Tell you "Sorry son but since you don't have any of them thar admitting privileges we can't take yer little cowgirl thar"? I think not!

Why then would it be different if you happened to be a doctor?

Why then would it be different if if you happened to be the doctor and you performed the procedure?

Where's the flaw in my logic?
