      Once again we have a freedom issue this time in the state of Georgia. A man is suing the state's driver services department for rejecting his application for a vanity license plate reading: "4GAYLIB," "GAYPWR" or "GAYGUY" denying him his constitutional rights.

      James Cyrus Gilbert from Atlanta said  he was not asking for something "vulgar or over the top", yet the state has reportedly approved plates with some political or religious expressions in the past.

      "Denying someone the right to put gay on their tag, that’s political," Gilbert told the Journal-Constitution. "If I want I could get a tag that said straight man, but because it had gay on it, it’s not available."

      The state did however approve plates that said  "G0D4EVR" and "GUNLUV".

      Do you think that this is unfair and shows inconsistencies as to what the state chooses to allow and not allow?

      Some states are more moral than others.  Perhaps a courtesy plate that says IMMORAL would confuse them.  You would need to find the guidelines in each state and see what the grounds were for denial to really pass any judgement.  They are allowing the buyers of the courtesy tags to not be forced to take the state issued, so it's their decision really what someone can't or can put on the plates.  Could be a lot of reasons for a denial.

      I think it's unfair. It's not like it perverse to be gay. Bunch of BS! I can see what you're saying chilly but it just seems bizarre that you would allow GUNLUV and not any of his requests. Right to bear arms or freedom to love who you love. What's the difference?

      That is not fair and the fact that you could get a tag with "straight man" on, is just annoying.

      I don't think being gay is a political statement any more than saying 'blonde', 'tall' or '40'. People need to catch up to the times and recognize homosexuality isn't a choice, it's a state of being.

      he shoud be able to have whatever he wants....but...im sure that the state will be covered as they have the right to deny any plate (good or bad) for whatever reason they want...it is his right to have a sign posted on his car saying what he wants but NOT his right to get the vanity plate...i would like an obama vanity plate NOT!!!

      I recall (Before Oregon cracked down on them) a license plate with the word "Merde" (By the way, that's  feces in French) So frankly, I am all for him having what he wants on his license plate. Of course, that it's Georiga and there be many backward people there (Some with guns and homophobic) I'd SERIOUSLY think twice about this.

      I guess I am looking at it in a different way, and it's probably not the reason behind the denial.  But in keeping with what Genenco said, we are talking about Georgia.  I'm not usually stereotypical, but this is deep south USA and gun toting is pretty much normal for most of the rural population if not the population in the big cities. 

      So GUNLOV  and other seemingly pro-gun plates would be acceptable.  GAYGUY might get you pulled over, tied up and dragged behind a pickup truck, hung up on a barbed wire fence and poked holes in with a shotgun.  Might incite a riot somewhere.  I don't know.  Personally I think you should be able to put anything you want on your plates if it hasn't been taken already by someone else. 

      Without knowing the reasons behind the denials, it could be these particular plates *were* already used by someone else and therefore denied by any others with the same request.

      I guess that was the right decision for his own protection. Then again, if he wants it, why deny him that right?

      What Im thinking is if that guy wants to advertise himself as gay, he should pay the advertising somewhere else, not on his plates, and same goes for a straight guy or anything else. Its untastfull at best. But if someone already alowed anything other than random letters and numbers to appear on plates than everything should be alowed.

      i have to disagree with that. I don't think there is anything distasteful about it. Vanity plates are your personal signature and if you want to say something that represents who you are why is that wrong? Again it infringes on your freedom. The only exception i see in this is if it's vulgar or advocates some type of violence or crime.

      We talk about equal rights yet there is nothing equal about this. If i wanted a plate that said STR8NSXY i would get it. So we are either equal rights across the board or we are not.

      @dtsweet love the pic lmaooo!
