'New York Post' Readers Express Sympathy for Cab-Booted Gays: "Walk Next Time, Future AIDS Victims"

Two dudes were kicked out of a cab by Stuy Town for hugging. (Who hugs in a cab? Whatever!) The New York Post is on the story, thank God, because their commenters have quite a bit to add. Other notable comments, besides those above: "The solution for gays is to simply avoid getting into cabs driven by Muslims, something I do anyway because I don't want a percentage of my fare going to Al Qaeda." And! "Ride the gay taxi next time if you're not happy. A bunch of AIDs breeders."

Hugging!? Oh goodness I've done so much worse in the back of a cab at 4am.

I hailed that cab at 4:15am. "West End and 102 please, and uh could you open the windows"

Dude. I've done worse in the back of a cab at 4 pm.

Hoo boy! Good thing that I can calmly see these days–now that my body is 40 but my face is 29 due to expensive creams; now that I have a year's experience in a homophobic, misogynist office crammed with parochial, hateful suburbanites under my belt; now that even most straights understand the message of Brokeback Mountain is that any wasted love is too much wasted love–it's a good thing that I can calmly see these days that the consumers of Haterade are the ones who are wrong and immoral, and dirty.

Who's organizing the gay cab hug-in? i am sooo there…

I would NOT ride in a gay cab!

The Puritan ethos in New England sure is pervasive.

Bittersweet (#765)

The usual pedantic nitpicking about NYC not being in New England, blah blah blah…

johnpseudonym (#1,452)

Oh, hey, I did not know that! Thanks! Seriously.

Paul Bruno, one of the illicit huggers is a friend of a friend. Everyone is talking about a taxi boycott, which is, of course, ridiculous. Having had a wonderful hug (and more) in a cab Saturday night, my counterargument is to have taxi love-ins, as Mr. Speed above.

(Also? I know at least ten friends that have blown their drivers. Not really relevant, but maybe.)

The gay taxi? First the ice cream trucks, now the taxis? The sinister homosexual agenda will soon overtake all vehicular commercial enterprise!

beingiseasy (#1,735)

soon the gays will be driving taxis to public schools to preach and disseminate Obama propaganda in video form, all the while leading their adopted gay penguins around on S&M style leashes. The apocalypse is near…

"Ride the gay taxi" keeps making me LOL!

Yeah, we keep screaming that in the office. It works for ANYTHING.

Hez (#147)

Oh yes. That would make even a stony-faced pile of sweaters chuckle.

They've deleted them now, but the comments about the NYU suicide were seriously out of control yesterday.
They ran a pic of the guy in a tux, so it was deduced by some of the commenters that he was a 'butt bandit.'

Is the gay taxi related to the cat bus?

Yay! I keep trying to make Totoro my little avatar but Gravatar and WordPress keep telling me I'm not signed up with them. Don't want to lose my yummy 3-digit number!

cherrispryte (#444)

It took me ages to get my avatar to work. Make sure you have the same name and password and contact email at,, and Gravatar, then burn sage and mallowsweet under a cresent moon while making the appropriate offerings to the Internet Gods. Or wait like, two hours. Whichever.

Kate Bush???

Bucko (#1,599)

Also, @Bittersweet, I created a new ID at gravatar with the same email address as my "old" name, and the picture for my new id got associated with my old id. Try it, what can you lose?

KarenUhOh (#19)

I once hugged myself in a cab, and man, was that guy confused.

johnpseudonym (#1,452)

That guy or that gay?

mathnet (#27)

Seriously though* I'm concerned about this cabbie. I mean, you live and work in New York City and it's 10:20 PM and two dudes are hugging and you're so upset that you need to break the law and risk your job and lose out on a fare to pull over and throw them out? Forget your soul or human decency, man; you're stupid.

*except! giggling again!

Baboleen (#1,430)

Separate but equal. What's next, gay-pet walking?

Kataphraktos (#226)

Poor Mohamed, he was probably upset because Bruno does what his wife refuses to do: he trims his beard.

iplaudius (#1,066)

I like how they're trying to reclaim breeder, but really "AIDs breeders" just makes you sound like a fag.

NicFit (#616)

How exactly does one avoid getting in a cab driven by a Muslim? Are there big "M"'s on the outside?

Slava (#216)

Wait… his name is actually Bruno?

Austin Rozzell (#6,986)
