Is it true that LA and San Francisco hate each other ?
By my experience i can say that they kinda hate each other. Few years ago i went there with some of my friends and we found out that as soon we told them we were from LA they would be like "ohh ok" and walk away or be like "so, are you plastic" ?
Thoughts ?

This was extensively covered in a recent topic (that I'm too lazy to search for). The general consensus was: It's a one-sided rivalry. Bay Area types tend to hate on L.A., while L.A. types seldom allow up North to cross our minds (unless one of the baseball teams are playing one of our teams)

Why would anyone in LA hate San Francisco? The cities are more similar than most people from San Francisco want to admit.

San Francisco is a bit overrated but better than 99% of the country. We should be united in our hatred of Orange County.

The only SF vs. LA rivalry that exists is on this board. In all my years growing up in the Bay Area, I've never known people with animosity toward LA. People on this site love to imagine or exaggerate problems that don't actually exist in real life. The only rivalries that I can really think of are between sports teams.

I have lived in both areas. I think there is some snooty comments being made and perceptions of people who come from both areas, but I don't believe that it's true animosity.

In the Bay Area, amongst the subculture that you see described in the "Stuff White People Like" blogs and books ( Stuff White People Like ), there is definite anti LA mentality. Of course, most of the folks in that subculture are not even natives, many are Eastern transplants. Also, the greatest locus for said subculture is SF proper, it's less pervasive in the other Bay communities.

What?! I've heard this all the time, whether in L.A. (they don't care unless somebody from SF says something), Santa Barbara (both cultures clashing in the same small town), and SF (relentless in their collective hatred of all things L.A.). While it's obvious in sports, the other stuff often involves water rights, Bohemians vs. "false" shallow types, whose got better weed and microbrews, and superiority in the arts. List could go on forever, but it's late.

I know quite a few people here in the Bay Area that have an almost comical animosity towards LA. As B.A.H. said though...it's most prevalent in SF proper, and yes, it is skewed more towards transplants (but not entirely). There isn't so much of this in the South Bay, probably because SJ is too similar to LA to bash it too much.

I agree, and find this to be common here in Sactown also. There is plenty of unfair animosity and arrogance against Los Angeles and Southern Cali in general, as the seedy end of the state. Which boggled me upon arriving at the Capitol city, since I couldn't recall while growing up in L.A. if there was as much disapproval or envy towards Sacramento, as if the two cities are even in the same categories? So at least in my circles of experience, I see no logical motive for dislike, nor apprehension for Nor Cali on the part of SoCali. Or am I overlooking something?
