A goth woman who likes to be led around on a leash by her fiancé says she was "victimized" by a bus driver who wouldn't let them board. He reportedly chastised her, yelling, "We don't let freaks and dogs like you on."

Dani Graves and Tasha Maltby (left) have complained to authorities in the British town of Dewsbury, saying that their being barred from the bus amounted to "discrimination, almost like a hate crime."

Interestingly, Maltby says she likes the leash because it fits the way she lives: "I am a pet; I generally act animal-like, and I lead a really easy life...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."

Hearing her perspective, what do you think?


Should we live and let live, or is leading someone around on a leash over-the-top misogyny? If your girlfriend wanted to be your "pet" and walk around the streets on a chain with you, would you go for it?
