pets are allowed on buses..i take my dog with me on the bus. they obviously want attention and cause the bus driver didnt let them on he`s giving them what they want. i couldnt care less what they look like but boasting about an easy life and living off wellfare whilst planning to raise a family is out of order.

My Top 5 List Of Why They Werent Allowed On The Bus!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*Disclaime : There may be bias as i am from Manchester.

1. They are in Yorkshire, He would expect lets say a more northen attire, Flat Cap, Overalls like a real man.

2: Hot Topic Doesnt exist over here. Its more strange little boutiques in passageways they get their freaky clothes.

3: She is on a Leash, I mean come on generally no pets allowed rule, if she says shes a pet ill take it as she is a pet.

4: They are dressed like Victorians At a Swimming Pool. - All In Black.

5: They live on the dole(taxpayers money) I mean come on if your on teh drating dole you dont wear goth clothes..!! it would cost a bomb..So we all know where our money is going!

Honorable mention: I)With many Mining Pits closed. We have to look for another hole to throw this male down. Any Ideas?

II) He could get a job but definitely not as a bus driver now anyway.

also that girl is hot and that guy is so freaky he looks like... i don`t even know but just looking at him makes me think of... death and darkness and cemeteries and like an undertaker who worships Satan. Like he`d be one of the people who buys an old used hearse and covers if in like skulls and crap. And he`d prolly do allot of really freaky sh*t in it. like cult stuff.

i see it as the bus driver using a loop hole. she calls herself a pet and pets aren`t allowed on the bus, so therefore if she was on the bus it would be like saying it`s ok to bring pets on the bus. I think shes a little bit messed up mentally if being on a leash 24/7 doesn`t bother her.
Also i wonder how it will affect their kids growing up seeing their mom on a leach and being treated like a pet? i`m guessing they`ll be a little bit mentally unstable.

If some one thinks that having your wife on a leash or acting like a puppy is wierd then gets on your case about it and you create a lot of drama because you can`t handle it...

How about you stop putting your wife on a leash or acting like a pet! Do what every one else does and just catch a different bus. It`s really not that hard.

Dude.
So `80s.

English goth people need to get with the program.

Either way Goth people in general are somewhat mentally damaged to start with, and if you add that to the, ahem, well you know, of English people.

VikingGuy: "okay,to all the f.ucktards out there sayin hate stuff about living off the state ...[drivel snipped]... just cause you dont like it doesnt mean they have problems,issues or are some sort of lower class than you."

No, I don`t like it when some ass is living off the state, collecting money from taxpayers that they should be generating themselves WITH A JOB living in a state facility and WANTING BABIES.

I give a crap if they want to live like asses but they should be paying for it themselves.

Why, how long have you been leeching off of the people around you to make you think that it`s OK to live like that.

Get some self-respect and stop being a drain on society.

To them, goth is apparently a lifestyle.

A conformist, Hot Topic dictated, horribly irresponsible lifestyle. That being said, the bus driver doesn`t really have a reason not to let them on the bus, as much as I hate to say it. They are in fact two human beings even if the `pet` doesn`t do anything all day. But really, they were asking for this sort of attention, and they jumped on the chance to get it. Somehow, I imagine they are stretching the truth a bit to get this poor driver out of a job. If it were up to me, I`d send the bus driver to jail and send the kids to boot camp and get them straightened up the hard way. To those sticking up for them, they`re also fetishists, and usually BDSM fetishists keep their actions very private because they know it will offend people. There`s no real reason why these kids should have the "right" to act like this in public.

"We don`t let freaks and dogs like you on."

Holy s***, give that bus driver a raise.

Sexual deviant? Degradation of women? Who cares, the douche is a goth, that`s good enough reason for me.

"Is`nt [sic] America all about freedom of speech and expression?"

Yeah, you can "express yourself", but don`t cry when the rest of society "expresses" its disgust for you. If you don`t like it, tough. Act like a normal human being, not like some retard freak. Also, LOL, good job assuming this took place in America.

"She was a `pet`, no pets allowed on bus"

Pabasa wins forever.

Look, everyone here is in the wrong. The bus driver for refusing to let them on for no good reason (they were paying customers) and the couple for going overboard, reporting it to a journalist and calling him a "fascist pig". Oh, and for not having jobs and living off other people`s cash.

It`s an odd life-style, but whether they are goths,emos,wiccas,monks,or whatever...so long as it doesn`t harm anyone besides themselves(?), they shouldn`t be denied their rights as citizens (even if they live from the tax money).At least, that`s my opinion.

^^Goth isn`t a style of music, it`s more like a lifestyle. Using that argument you could say there was no such category as the other category you labelled - "jock", where`s the style of music in that?
What made me laugh the most is the "walking down the street, just normally, because we`re really normal people after all, just ignore this chain" pose in the photo.
I also wonder how much of that story is true, "He basically grabbed my T-shirt and slammed me backwards" and then got done for assault?
In paper`s like the mail you have to watch out for things like "basically", "it has been proposed" and "evidence suggests". It`s how they cover lies.

i mean a punk could be proceed as a Juvi pothead
a gangster could look like a convict that could murder people and a preppy Aeropostal lover could be a rich snob who steals there daddy`s credit card for the mall.

I don`t like the fact that my money (well, my parents) is supporting people like this. No, not goths, people who I`m sure would be able to get a job. Lots of places want to hire new, young, and healthy people. But no, they can`t get a job, why, to be "different?" I`m also assuming that they don`t have a car, why would they need to use the busses. I`m sure they would save money if they didn`t wear such, well, goth-ish clothes. Those are expensive.

as for the couple in the article, I really don`t care what they do; I`m glad there are people that challenge conventions of society (albeit looking like retards in the process). although they should know how people will react. oh and of course there had to be the obligatory use of "fascist pig" from the goth idiot.

Vikingguy, the issue is no longer about them being goths. It`s another issue now. The issue is that they`re living on welfare.

21% of my everyday spendings are given to the government. Money I got from work. And these people are living the easy life, out of part of MY MONEY (which I gave to the government, which the government gave to them), even though they are perfectly capable of getting a job on their own, should definitely be classed as a lower class than I am.

I have no problems with goths. Unless you`re causing trouble why should I be bothered? I`m just pissed that my money that I earned from hard work is wasted on these jerks.

it`s not disrimination any more than telling a nudist they have to wear clothing around schools is discrimination. They choose to look and act like that. Black people don`t choose to be black, not letting them on the bus for it would be discrimation. These people on the other hand, can go home and find something more appropriate to wear in public.

These people can`t even discriminate between halloween attire and regular clothes, I doubt they have any concept of what discrimination is.

I won`t go into a "OMFG WTF U DIDN READ N00B!!!1" rage, but it did say the girl was a music technology student. And heck, if one of them works while the other stays at home to take care of their (future) children, what`s the problem with that?

I have to agree with a bit with Benoxxxx tough, about the attention seeking. Most people would have said something like "Eh. That sucks. I`ll file a complaint." instead of calling it a hate crime and fascist pigs.

Also, Panicdevil23, stop calling "sexist!" on something just because it doesn`t fit the independant businesswoman stereotype. It`s not like the guy forces her to wear the leash, it`s her choice.

It is slightly ridiculous that they weren`t allowed on the bus, but they still kind of annoy me. ... I had all of these amazing thoughts to type out, but they left because I had to go feed my puppy. Ah well.

They`re ridiculous, and so is the bus driver.

To be "Hurting someone" you don`t need to run around kicking people in the balls. Using their phone lines, using their cabling, taking their electricity to maintain my gadget-filled lifestyle "isn`t hurting anyone", except in that I`m taking all their money that they work for to maintain their own lives, and using it to maintain mine.

As for "trying to get a job":

"I am a pet, I generally act animal like and I lead a really easy life," she said.

"I don`t cook or clean and I don`t go anywhere without Dani. It might seem strange but it makes us both happy. It`s my culture and my choice. It isn`t hurting anyone."

While they are clearly a bit weird, they do have a right to be weird and it was definitely unnecessary discrimination on the part of the bus driver.
He didn`t say `no pets allowed`, he said `no dogs allowed`, so all you people saying that he was technically right have clearly not been paying attention. Added to which he also said they don`t allow freaks.

Bombsquad505 said it best:

"...if she considers herself a pet, and pets aren`t allowed on the bus, then the bus driver should technically be able to restrict their access."

To be honest, I see this as being more of a wannabe-BDSM more than anything else. Most people I know who practise a similar form of Dominance and submission do so in the comfort of their own home or a local dungeon. These two are just trying to get a rise out of people - nothing else.
