Airlines Rejects Female Passenger Because Pro-Choice T-Shirt is "Inappropriate" [Language alert]
RH Reality Check ^ | May 22, 2012 | Jodi Jacobson

Posted on 05/23/2012 9:42:15 PM PDT by tom h

Yesterday I attended a meeting of pro-choice colleagues working to ensure women throughout this country get safe, compassionate abortion care. Today, I received an email from one of those colleagues, detailing the ordeal through which she was put by American Airlines on her flights home. They actually forced her to miss her connecting flight and demanded she change her top. The reason? Her politically salient pro-choice t-shirt was offensive to the flight crew.

That sign said: "If I wanted the government in my womb, I'd f*** a senator." ...

I find it amazing just how far the left goes these days to get attention.

I cannot even imagine what the woman looked like, who wore this shirt to the airport. Betcha even the oldest, horniest Democrat Senator wouldn't touch her.

OK, well the airlines did OK.

I find T-shirts with curse words distracting. Yes, I will defend to the death your right to wear garb with such verbiage anywhere in public.

But in a private setting, I prefer to not be assaulted thusly.

And airports are private — cartainly planes are.

(but this is yet another example of what passes for “class” in liberal circles.)

Was this her?

You know she'd do Al Franken.

If she wanted government in her womb she’d want the government to mandate that her insurer give her “free” contraception and pay for the cost of terminating all failed contraceptions - I guess she does want the government in there after all.

She can turn her shirt inside out just like students in school are told to, when they where something vulgar.

It’s not about your sentiments, lady, it’s about your vulgarity.

I won’t.

There is, or used to be, such a thing as common decency. Public venue or not.

Perhaps that is true about Democrat Senators but I think I know of a certain former US President who would hit it in a minute no matter what she looks like.

So? Make a pest of yourself and you will be tossed off. Riding in a noisy, cramped metal tube with a few dozen to a few hundred people is downright unpleasant enough anyway without finding out you are sharing the experience with someone who has the social skills of an angry skunk.

That ticket is not a license to make everyone else on the plane even more miserable.

So this chick actually thought that shirt was appropriate for being in public? Goes to show the maturity of those folks, but then as with toddlers, everything has to always be about THEM.

The 1st Amendment is a harsh mistress. You you have to grit your teeth sometime.

I have always been ambivalent about “public decency” laws.

I am not saying you are wrong — I am just saying in general my feet fall in the “more freedom than not” camp...

She has the right to wear that obscene shirt. AA has the right to deny her service, and the public has the right to ostracize her for wearing it.

Well of course it was appropriate, it was on a sign carried by the honorable Oklahoma state senator Judy McIntyre (D) at a pro-choice rally. /sarc

Sandra Fluke is hot compared to the old b-tch no doubt wearing the t-shirt. Think 60 years old, no makeup, 40 pounds overweight with saggy t-ts.

Perhaps these notorious liberal women will provide you with the appropriate image.

“If I wanted the government in my womb, I’d f*** a senator.” .

Actually, I wore a shirt on capital hill once that said:

“If I wanted the government in my food, I’d feliciate(sp) the president”...

Darned it I didn’t get hit on by Bill Clinton every SINGLE DAY!

I like this one better

“If I wanted the government in my pocket any more, I would keep voting for the dem and RINO politcal whores.”

"Social Contract?????"

PB911 -- I will chalk this up to an evening lapse... The idea of a "social contract" is a liberal construct to create an imagined financial responsibility from those who work to those who do not.

She was spoiling for a fight and got one, but maybe not in the way she expected. And it could have been easier if it had said “have sex with” a senator.

It was the private airline, not the government TSA, who was the heavy here. They don’t have to let you take porn to view on board, for instance. A church wouldn’t have had to let her sit in the pews with that showing. Etc.

She did, but the fix to the problem wasn’t an unreasonable one and it was a public airline with tariffed guarantees and they never have to guarantee a seat. Turning the shirt inside out would have sufficed.

First of all, it's “paid”, not “payed”.

Second of all, the 9/11 Hijackers “paid” for their tickets too. What's your point?

Buying a ticket from an Airline does not give you Carte Blanche to offend your fellow passengers and their children with such a display of disgusting filth.

What a cesspool this country has become. This Media Driven narcissistic “look at me” behavior promoted throughout our Society is like a cancer. I am disgusted how we just shrug off such rudeness that would have been considered outside the realm of acceptable manners when I was growing up.

I’ll clue you in on something. If the pilot says you don’t fly on the plane, then you don’t fly. Start a fuss, be a pain, or whatever: if he says you get off-off you go!

The pilot is the master of the ship and his word is final. I will bet you money that this bitch was told to change the shirt and she created a fuss, so they pitched her.

Airlines haven’t filed tariffs since the Civil Aeronautics Board was abolished in the ‘70s. When you buy a ticket you have a Contract of Carriage with the airline. You pretty much follow their rules or you don’t fly. If you are particularly obnoxious, an airline is free to ban you for life.

You would “defend to the death” someone’s right to wear a shirt like that, freedumb?

Boy.

Well my take on it is that when I saw a car parked outside my house with a F+++ BUSH bumper sticker, I politely told the fellow that he was under no obligation to remove the bumper sticker, but that it might be better for his car in the long run, were the neighborhood children not able to see it.

He understood, and covered up the sticker.

How far this country has fallen. Back in the 1950’s and before it was customary for men to wear a jacket and tie when flying. No one dared wear jeans to Church either.

I feel sorry for the kids of today, I really do.

She wore that shirt because she knew the expletive would get her into trouble, and then she’d whine about how she, as a crusader for women, was discriminated against.

The comments under the article are telling. I especially like how the one sane poster over there (”dventimi”) took the author to task for her “facts”, AND didn’t let her skate when she tried to dismiss his altogether calm and fair argument as “a rant”. Ms. Jacobson doesn’t exactly seem to be the sharpest knife in the drawer.

The other lefties are so histrionic, it’s downright funny.
