GAY692
« on: 25 Sep 11, 07:27:pm »
If Robert Trathen's car registration is anything to go by, he is homosexual and adventurous in the boudoir.

But, since he's straight and would rather not discuss his sex life, he was not very happy when his freshly imported BMW 316 came with a "GAY692" plate.

Miffed, he called the New Zealand Transport Agency within days to seek a new one.

"I picked it up on Tuesday ... I've already had people pointing and laughing at me." Trathen added that just driving it off the car lot he was subjected to sniggers.

"I'm definitely not homophobic, I just want another plate."

Sounds like he's learning a lesson about the type of homophobia lots of gay people encounter every day.

Can't they take a joke? is usually the response.  At least he can park the car and forget about it.  Some gay and trans people get similar "jokes" everywhere they go.

So you're saying it's all right because he is "learning a lesson".
