A lesbian actress who starred in "The L-Word" said she kissed a girl and got escorted off of a Southwest Airlines flight on Monday for doing it.
Leisha Hailey took to Twitter to call for a boycott of the carrier after a flight attendant told them other passengers had complained after witnessing the affection.
Her first tweet said: "I have been discriminated against." She later added, "Since when is showing affection to someone you love illegal?"
Southwest Airlines Co. responded on its website that Hailey was approached "based solely on behavior and not gender." The airline's four-sentence response said passengers were characterizing the behavior as excessive.

They want to flaunt it and convince the kids its normal, makes them easier to groom that way. Yes I aid “they” and “they” know who “they” are.
Somehow I doubt it was a simple kiss.
A quick peck on the lips likely wouldn’t have caused much of a ruckus with passengers. I heard on a radio program this morning that these two “L-words” were making out. If that is the case, it wasn’t appropriate. It wouldn’t be appropriate for a hetero couple either.
You totally understand liberal elites...
Probably more like a tonsillectomy.

It’s inappropriate for the public, simple. When are these libtards ever going to get it? Even when I kiss my Gf in public, I do it in an instant.
20 years from now, some idiot will begin kissing his/her dog and say ‘why can’t I show some affection for someone I love?” The same BS propaganda I see at every fag city..the “I love but why can’t I marry” BS. And beside the poster is an AIDS office.
I think you're right. It's no coincidence that this happened just as her movie is being released.
Actually, she was paying attention to everyone around her and they’re exactly why she did it. Aside from being a lesbian, she’s apparently an attention whore.
it was not just the SW stewardess, it was also the OTHER passengers who were complaining.
Not only a PR stunt, probably stoned out of her mind or on pills.
Cudos to Southwest for kicking them off the plane, SAME AS ANY OTHER MISCREANT.
Sounds like a setup for a PR stunt or a lawsuit. After all, they weren’t hosed down.
The lady needs to shampoo her hair and Lysol her mind.
The two managers at his place of employment are lesbians. They live together and everyone knows they are lesbians. But, they don't flaunt it and they keep it to themselves. Nobody cares. He told me a woman got hired that is also a lesbian and the subject came up and she told others she was also a lesbian. He told me that when she discovered that no one cared, she started to flaunt it until she got a reaction and the cried discrimination.
That's what this actress is doing. Flaunt her sexuality until she offends someone enough and now she gets to be a victim
She callls herself a lesbian; I guess I should have called her that instead of a lady. Well, whatever, she’s still got dirty, stringy hair and a disordered mind.
As goes the commercial:
Southwest Airlines - the RIGHT call!
Way to go SWA
I’m certain she would have been warned prior to being kicked off. Sounds like she didn’t heed the warning. Too bad. So sad.
