Two fourteen year old girls were kicked off a public bus because they were kissing, and some nut-job complained. Just to add insult to injury, the driver called them “sickos”.
PORTLAND, Ore. – Two gay teen girls who say they were kicked off a TriMet bus for being affectionate with each other are considering lodging a complaint against the driver of the bus.
Maika Rich and Jocelyn O’Neal, both 14, admit they were kissing while on the No. 12 bus traveling on Barbur Boulevard at about 5 p.m. on June 8. They were headed to the Sexual Minority Youth Recreation Center.
They say a female passenger complained to the driver about the kissing and that the driver told them to “knock it off” and also called them “sickos.”
Rich says she then gave O’Neal a hug because it appeared she was upset about the exchange. They say at that point the driver stopped the bus and ordered them off.
The girls say they are used to being picked on at school but felt defenseless against an adult.
