Curious as to why you put Bologna and Madrid so low. Not attacking your opinion, just curious.

Is SF really tolerant? I mean, they seriously tolerate Republicans? They tolerate religious conservatives? They don't even like people from LA.

To me, SF would not be a particularly tolerant city, though hardly the worst either.

From most to least tolerant overall imo...

Tier 1:
Amsterdam
San Francisco

Tier 2:
Vancouver
Toronto
New York City

Tier 3:
London
Berlin
Lisbon
Barcelona

Tier 4:
Paris
Madrid
Tel Aviv
Melbourne
Sydney

Tier 5:
Mexico City
Rio de Janeiro
Buenos Aires
Bologna
Zurich
Bangkok

In cities like Rio and Bangkok most people are tolerant but the officials aren't.
If only talking about tolerance of prostitution and corruption they would be in tier 1.
What are you basing this on?

One can still be tolerant by being intolerant to the intolerant.

ah okay. I realise I may be bias, but I'd put Australian cities, on par with major US/Canadian ones.

Hmm, I don't think that's true. Selective tolerance isn't true tolerance.

If you only tolerate people you agree with, you aren't tolerant. Therefore, I don't understand how SF can reasonably be considered a highly tolerant city.

I agree with you, the tolerant stereotype of SF is really overhyped. I find it to be no more tolerant than NYC, LA, or maybe even cities like New Orleans(the city not suburbs). There are countless articles written by Hispanic and black people about how they found SF to be subtly racist.... "liberal racism".

But is tolerance of corruption a plus? I think it shouldn't be in any way

By the way, i agree with your ranking but i would place Madrid, Tel Aviv and maybe even Bologna in tier 3

Tolerance can also be being intolerant towards groups who promote directly and indirectly intolerancy. This is probably what makes San Francisco one of the most tolerant cities in the whole world
