History project a 'perversion' of process

You report LGBT activists and the Q Foundation threatened to file an appeal to stop a permitted Tenderloin urban infill development on environmental grounds unless San Francisco creates an LGBT Cultural Heritage District and a transgender community facility ["SF leaders back LGBT history projects," February 2]. This perversion of our environmental laws amounts to extortion and exacerbates a housing shortage hurting whatever community these activists claim to represent.

Using threats this way is unbecoming and provokes backlash. They're welcome to solicit me to fund a plaque, but they're not welcome to speak for me.
