NY Post – They’re not hookers — they just look as if they could be! A dozen scantily clad women rallied outside City Hall yesterday, decrying a bill they say prevents beauties wearing skimpy clothes from getting a fair shot at hailing a yellow cab. The proposal, which will soon get Mayor Bloomberg’s signature, slaps stiff penalties on cabbies who ferry prostitutes and get a cut of the cash. But yesterday’s collection of bartenders and shot girls said that hacks will now be scared to pick up any woman wearing a short skirt or spiked heels — and noted that sometimes, even legitimately employed women have to flaunt it to make a living. “They don’t even know who is a prostitute or not!” said Diana Estrada, 27, a Sofrito bartender wearing a cleavage-baring spaghetti-strap dress. “You don’t have a shirt on that tells if you’re a prostitute or not.” She frequently takes cabs home to Astoria after leaving late shifts, and she’s concerned taxi drivers will pass her by, since she wears short-shorts or miniskirts. Currently, the city’s Taxi & Limousine Commission has the authority to strip drivers of their licenses if they knowingly partake in sex trafficking. But the new bill — which the City Council unanimously passed Wednesday — would require the TLC to both strip a driver’s license and slap them with a $10,000 penalty if he’s previously been convicted of sex trafficking. On a first offense, a driver goes to a city hearing, where his license could be revoked. The proposal could make cops more willing to arrest drivers who are innocent, said taxi-union boss Fernando Mateo. “I will challenge any one of you to tell me which one of [these women] you would consider to be a prostitute,” he said yesterday. “They’re all sexy.”
Hey Bloomberg are you out of your fuckin mind bro? First 20 ounce sodas and now this. Let me ask you a question, Bear Jew – how the fuck are normal sluts supposed to get cabs under this new rule? Whether they are actual prostitutes or just dressed up in a prostitutes uniform, these broads have places to be. Sluts need to travel too, Bloomberg! I mean this could be the death of the booty call as we know it. You think the chick dressed in the short skirt with her tits out is gonna leave the bar to hop on the subway, transfer to the bus, and walk a couple blocks to go suck your dick? For sure not. Late night cabs for chicks is basically a shuttlebus for sluts. Door to door delivery of chick who’s down to fuck. If every yellow cab out there is weeding out the sexy chicks the whole goddam system falls apart.
Only Bloomberg could come up with a rule to try and stop prostitution that results in more scantily clad women walking the streets.
