Shortline Disciplines Homophobic Driver

Categories: Gaaaaayyyyyy

And not in the way he likes.

You'll remember the story here about the driver who wanted male customers holding hands to go to the back of the bus, even calling over a state trooper to enforce this crazy rule (to no avail).

Well, Lambda Legal defended the case, and as a result, Shortline swears it has disciplined the driver and will conduct sensitivity training for all of its drivers to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again.

So hopefully we can now be driven places without being driven crazy.

"...and will conduct sensitivity training for all of its drivers to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again."LMAO! If only it was that simple to change bigoted minds.

Come now, Whorey, sensitivity training works as well as drug rehab - you just have to keep going back on and off for the rest of your life.

Good for Ari, Lamda, and you!  I'm sure plenty of frustrated MFs are sorry to loose gay as whipping boy.

Lamdba links to a "resolution letter" but nothing comes up. Meanwhile, there's nothing specific about how the driver was supposedly disciplined! Does it even say the person's name?? Are we just supposed to believe this was taken care of??

"Short Line Bus Company has confirmed it has appropriately disciplined the driver"
