I had a couple of other posts in mind but they will have to wait because this story is just too good to ignore.
Right Said Fred had a one hit moment in 1992 with a song that still sticks in the back of people’s minds today- “I’m Too Sexy“. It was a goof on a male model’s own view of himself and it inspired numerous parodies.
(”I’m too sexy for my car too sexy for my car Too sexy by far And I’m too sexy for my hat Too sexy for my hat what do you think about that” ).
That’s just one line of the song – but you get the point. It seems to have also inspired some employee at Southwest Airlines to decide that a passenger was too sexy for the plane.
Who is allowed to make such a decision if an airline – by its own statement – has no dress code? They must have a special “I’m Too Sexy” customer care associate to size up these matters and provide on the spot removal of people who are too sexy for the ride. (“Okay – you there Toots, with too much of everything, you have to go”. And go, she did; straight to Playboy – smart girl). But let’s get past the fact that this young woman was, in fact, very pretty, a blond with large breasts and dressed sparingly, in what is a very common outfit these days. SW Airlines claims that it simply doesn’t accept clothing that would offend their flyers. This would have to mean that they have either polled their flyers about sexy clothing or have an arbitrary rule about where the line is drawn. I wonder how that works? Do they measure male ground crew erections to determine this? That might be a way. Or tote up the number of female ground crew who crack on the size of the passenger’s breasts – though that seems a little biased to me. Could we see this passenger’s vajayjay? No – that was covered – as were the bosoms. Did they expect a gang rape on the flight?
Just exactly who is this censor who made the decision and what prompted it? It’s sexist, ageist, presumptuous and insulting – the first two are covered by free speech and the last are just really bad PR. And how did this person simply disallow a customer to board. I didn’t think the airline industry was that fiscally healthy that they could pick and choose who flies and who doesn’t. Is there now a new “no fly list” that covers clothing choices? Suppose you were on a flight with religious people in their various garb? That might be offensive to some. I happen to love saris, but suppose an employee thought that six yards of fabric wrapped without fasteners was potentially too sexy? What about spaghetti straps? Over the knee boots, stilettos? And what does it say about the male passengers on board. Does SW Airlines assume they are all so sex-crazed they would disrupt the flight drooling over this woman’s outfit? What if she had been a gymnast? I suspect this could never happen on Air France.
No, no. I suspect it wasn’t so much the outfit as it was the breasts and thighs in the outfit. Therefore and hence, I shall steer quite clear of Southwest Airlines, thank you very much. With such an arbitrary policy one can never be too careful or too sure it seems. The risks are simply too – well- risky. Too final you say – I don’t think so, because, despite being of a certain age – I know that I’m far too sexy for their planes.
