  1. I would LOVE fag or gej as my number plate. I have always been of incorrect sexual orientation.

    1. My sexual orientation IS correct. I love men!!

      1. Thanks for helping me out there, Jeff.

  2. He should fork out the £12 and buy himself a TIT numberplate.

    1. Yes. It’s laughable to think some people in this country give £80 to the DVLA and hundreds more to a number plate dealer to have a “cherished” numberplate in the format ABC 123, when these are issued as a matter of course in LT, and furthermore can be changed for £12. A friend in Vilnius was recently fined more than that for parking on the pavement.

      People may think he is a bird-watcher!

  3. “These registration plates should be reserved exclusively for gays.”
    Is he secretly a comedian by any chance? Because I did have a quiet laugh at that line.

    Lithuania is today very close to the constitutional ban on all types of same-sex unions, ban of abortion, and ‘anti-homosexual propaganda’ law (even majority of Social Democrat party with the Prime Minister is in favor of it). No hope here, not now, not tomorrow!

    1. Guess I won’t be vactioning in Lituania anytime soon. Seattle; here we come!!

      This news comes at the same day as decision of ‘Associated Press’ not more use word ‘homophobia’, because anti-gay sentiments are not ‘phobia’ or mental illness. How ironic!

      1. That’s new to me, we all know that such legislation would never pass on the EU. Just because there’s a few loud people does not mean that the entire parliament is in favour of it. That’s like saying the USA is about to do it because Michelle bachmann said so… Honestly

          And where was EU, when Hungary has banned two years ago same-sex marriage and abortion by new Constitution? Any reaction on this two issues from European Commission, no? Well, I guest, we have here answer for the question ‘gay rights in some parts of Eastern Europe in the next decade’…

          1. im not saying that everything is perfect in this country but you have to remember how much influence the Nordic countries have in the baltic region.

          2. Pavlos Prince of Greece 29 Nov 2012, 1:23am

            Yes, I know. Scandinavian banks, for example. But its not about gay rights or cultural influence, just economic and nothing more. If Lithuania wish to ban for ever all types of same-sex unions or abortion, it will – regardless ‘reaction’ (if any) from Sweden or Denmark. Gay rights have future in this Republic just if Lithuania wish to be tolerant itself. And for the moment its nothing more than small Catholic country with angry post-soviet people.

    And there we have a reflection of the Lithuanian level of education.

  6. Is this seriously a news story.

    As if we do not have enough crap spewed daily at us from churches and politicians.

    THIS is relevant.

    Hello Benjamin Cohen.

    Wake up.

    That’s the sort of comment an insecure 13 year old would say.. Do Lithuanian men actually ever finish their adolescence?

    1. is that a generalisation about all Lithuanian men? Would that also include Lithuanian gay men? Come on get a grip, how are we going to overcome prejudice and stereotypes if that is all we deal in ourselves?

  8. Tried and FAILED to ban Baltic PRIDE – Vilnius 2010 and a jolly good pride it was too!

    LEBIETES MYLI LIETUVA!
    (lesbians LOVE Lithuania)

    …because Lithuania needs plenty of love (and it doesn’t half play with their heads!)

  9. Lithuania is not the only country with such short minded people ,even in Belgium we have. Maybe he should change his plate to ASS-HOLE.

  10. This is quite old news I remember watching the interview(the old man meant it as a joke)

  11. GingerlyColors 29 Nov 2012, 7:15am

    Is it a good idea to have FAG on your number plate? Would that contravene the ban on cigarette and tobacco advertising?
