I have been following this article since yesterday. In case you haven’t yet read about this couple, The Daily Mail has some news for you. They were refused a bus ride by a driver, who said -
“We don’t let freaks and dogs like you on.”
And read what the lady had to say:
“I am a pet, I generally act animal like and I lead a really easy life”
The driver wasn’t right. He should have let them board the bus. It’s their business and they can very well do what they want to do. At the same time, I don’t believe in this practice of chaining each other up, whatever might be the reason. She was right in a way- we do become like a ‘pet’.
Speaking generally- Can’t a person be trusted so as to be released? What about the Right to Freedom? This might not really apply in the above mentioned case, where the girlfriend herself wants to be chained.
Prestidigitator also has a similar picture posted on his blog, where a mother (presumably) was seen walking, with her daughter on a leash.
