isn’t it fucked up how when you give money to homeless people, a lot of the time people get mad at you? like when i’ve given money to people on the street a lot of times people who have been with me have gotten on my ass about it, saying shit like “uhhh don’t you know they’re just going to spend it on drugs? so you’re actually just enabling them, and hurting them"
has anyone else experienced this? like the whole spiel about how you’re actually a ~bad person~ for giving money to homeless people? it’s so ridiculously transparently absurd, but apparently this is pretty widespread because i’ve heard it from a lot of people, mostly libertarian leaning people, ofc, but even a lot of supposedly “progressive” people have said that shit to me
