Men file complaint over ejection from cab for kiss

CHICAGO (AP) — Two men filed a complaint with the state of Illinois against a Chicago taxicab company Monday, alleging one of the company’s drivers ejected them from a cab after they kissed.

Steven White of West Hollywood, Calif., and Matthew McCrea of Chicago say they kissed during a ride in May from O’Hare International Airport to McCrea’s home. They claim the driver for Sun Taxi turned the interior lights on and off, telling his passengers, “This is public transportation.” The driver initially pulled over on an expressway but then drove to a grocery store parking lot and ordered them out, they said.

“My initial reaction was that I was afraid of this man, and I didn’t know what he was thinking,” said White, 29. “Matt’s initial reaction was that we are not getting out of this cab on the expressway.”

White called a complaint line and was eventually connected to police, who sent officers to the grocery store parking lot. The cab driver told police White and McCrea had been “making sex,” which the two deny. No one was arrested, and the two men eventually got out of the cab and waited for another one to come pick them up.

The driver told the Chicago Sun-Times that he was annoyed because the two men wouldn’t stop kissing and that he found their behavior distracting.

The couple say they exchanged only a brief kiss.

The gay rights organization Lambda Legal filed a complaint Monday with the Illinois Department of Human Rights seeking damages on their behalf.

Sun Taxi general manager Jong Lee says he can’t comment on the complaint until he sees it.

McCrea says since the incident he might be a little more cautious about how he acts. However, White says he refuses to change his behavior.

“We’re a couple just like any other couple,” he said.

The cabbie judged these two men simply because they were born that way. Just as society judges adult men for their attraction to underage girls. Sexual attraction should be embraced, and even celebrated! If you have an urge, it is natural, not a product of culture.

If an 11 year old boy can decide he wants to be a girl (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJw3s8...) then he is the embodiment of children embracing their sexuality. He/She is the future! Maybe one day society will accept an 11 year old's human right to have sex with an adult.

Statutory rape laws are medieval and offensive to children. If she's old enough to be tried as an adult, she's old enough to be satisfied as an adult. Society used to limit the sexual rights of blacks too.

High schools across America already have LGBT clubs. They promote sexual attraction between two 15-year old boys. How much longer do we have to wait before society accepts that same lust between adults and those sweet, succulent boys?

Sorry Tea Party racists...these emotions don't hurt anyone, so ACCEPT IT!!! Jazz is 11 and she's attracted to boys. Old white men need to keep their laws off her body! (unless that's her thing, then stop discriminating!)

Yup, you are no longer allowed to think for yourself, or have your own opinions or beliefs, this is Hitler all over again but in the name of liberalism. So eat what we tell you, think how we tell you, Hell I'm gay and hate to see it, I am what I am but I actually had more rights in the 70's & 80's than I do now!!!
