You may watch the video here….you are forewarned that a young lady wearing little and tightly-clad clothing is featured in the video.
They asked her to put on more clothing. She asked for a blanket and covered herself. She is thinking of filing a suit because she was “ashamed and embarrassed” from the whole incident. Well, so were the people forced to be with her in tight confines for several hours!
Ugghh…and the whole feminist shlock on how she was picked on just because she was a young woman…hello, she was a young woman making other people uncomfortable! And I’m guessing the blanket was cozier than bare skin on an over air-conditioned plane. 😉
Write to Southwest and tell them you support their actions to protect decency for all their customers!
Here is the letter I wrote, feel free to copy and add your name or additions to it:
Dear Management at Southwest Airlines,
I recently viewed a CNN clip online about the incident with Kyla Ebbert, a customer who was asked to add clothing to her attire to appear decently on the flight to Tucson.
I am writing to offer my support and gratitude for your airline staff in making the stance for decency and modesty in their work environment. So many times, I have had to sit in close proximity to women who show way too much of their bodies than is comfortable to be seen…and I am a heterosexual woman! I did not think I had any recourse to address my seatmate’s attire. Now, on any flight I may have in the future with Southwest Airlines, I will address any discomfort I may have to an attendant.
You have the right, as a privately-run company, to have standards of dress for your customers. Stand by them and make them clear!
There are many, many men and women who are sensitive to modesty issues. I hope they join with me in offering their whole-hearted support for your actions.
