A £320,000 #bicycle lane in #London was used by 4000 cyclists a day. About 300 people complained so council ripped it off to ease congestion.

The result?

The lane is blocked by parked cars 80% of the time, and congestion... has increased.

This is a real issue. There are plenty of poor, at-risk, recently coming out, etc. adults that would benefit from an LGBTQ center, but funders won't give out grants for those things.

They want to save sad teens and not worry about what happens when someone's entire support structure disappears at a certain age.

This is why a lot of "youth" programs keep creeping up the age or just not checking, because the funders are a bunch of conservative assholes with contempt for vulnerable adults.

I'm so glad I left twitter and met the weird assortment of people I have. You're all so, so, so strange and mean so much to me.
