FL: Trio of A's angers duo of gays

by Jeremy Hooper

200802010921A Florida gay man is bringing to a light the fact that his state's leg of the AAA automobile club has different standards for married heterosexuals and domestically-partnered gay people. In Florida, a gay person and their partner must both pay full price for AAA membership, unlike married straights, who can get half-price for their spouses:

AAA has different policy for homosexuals [WPTV]

Bad news for those Florida gay dudes whose rubber-covered item goes limp, thus necessitating a blow job.

Your thoughts

Triple A may have different prices for gays, but everyone still gets the same terrible service!!!!

That's the silliest thing I ever read today.

Interesting - When I lived with a lesbian roommate in Wisconsin, I asked about getting the family discount even though we weren't married. The person on the phone said they didn't care that much about the specifics and the family plan would be fine.

That policy wouldn't be limited exclusively to Florida either. Florida is within the service area of AAA Auto Club South, which means this would also be in effect in Georgia, western Tennessee, and Puerto Rico.

The same thing happened to me. I guess they will have a really good argument for making us pay full-price when the anti-gay marriage amendment passes this November. I hate this state.
