Two gay men are suing a taxi company after they say they were kicked out of a cab for kissing each other.

Matthew McCrea and Steven White say they got into a Sun Taxi cab at O’Hare Airport back in May.

When they kissed, the driver flicked his interior lights on and off and told them “This is public transportation,” and ordered them to get out.

McCrea  and White say their civil rights were violated.

No comment from the cab company.

    This has nothing to do with civil rights. No one should have to be witness to public displays of affection in public. Those actions are just as gross as openly breast feeding and changing diapers in public.

    Cab rides are a civil right? Didn’t read that in my high school Constitution class. They were kick out for kissing (according to the plaintive) These two weren’t discriminated against because of their race, religion, age, sex or sexual orientation . If I were in the jury box the cabbie would win.
