Puritanism and PC? Do those really even go along with each other?

Yes, the anti-pornography movement could be viewed in such a manner. When groups take a stand against sexism and objectification (not an unreasonable position) by demanding censorship outright regardless of the consensuality of involved parties they are brushing up alongside the views and actions of religious conservatives.

There is generally a convergence between different groups with a disdain for freedoms even if they arrive at that point for entirely different reasons.

In this instance though airlines should be allowed to maintain dress codes even if they are arbitrary and unfair; at least she gets some airtime out of it.

Are 3 posts on her supposed lack of undies really necessary? It's kind of disturbing, given your age, that you are fixated on this enough to make 3 comments on it. And also given your life quest to never judge people. Well, black folk, anyway. Guess that doesn't apply to women, huh, deep.

We expect our professionals to dress a certain way. Obviously her dressing this way and the flight attendant dressing this way are two things which bear no similarity to one another in the comparison context we are discussing.

It is certainly common sense to dress yourself appropriately when going to church or to court. But people wear all sorts of things on flights, especially those heading to tropical places. I think they look like morons and I enjoy watching them shiver on the flight where the temperature is below that which can sustain human life (no wonder we need those disgusting polyester blankets), but I wouldn't insist on them changing their clothes.

If you keep them unbuttoned so I can see your chest fur, then yes.

Andrea Dworkin and James Dobson have lots in common, and not just a fear and hatred of and for sex.

I don't see how this is really much different from a nice restaurant or nightclub having a dress code - no jeans, sneakers, etc. I think people perceive airplanes as a public domain or something. And we only saw the "after" photo.

What's next, are you going to place size limits on spandex?

You going to require baggy clothing on planes?

Some of you are being ridiculous...

If Southwest had a dress code they intended to enforce, they should have had it posted all over everything you sign off on when you buy your ticket, as well as publicly where everyone can see it.

I would,..but not in the way that she should wear something different. It would me make uncomfortable because the chance to be called a sexual frustrated pig when i looked is very big i guess.

What do you consider minimum dress-code?

I'm not advocating dress codes on airplanes.

I can't bear sitting next to someone doused in heavy perfume/colgogne (especially on 12 hour transPacific flights) but I wouldn't expect them to be escorted off the plane and told to shower up first.

So Southwest has a publicly posted dress code for everyone to comply with?
