After reading this entire post, I have to agree with the airline. This is not a matter of free speach. It is a matter of the airlines having a right
to enforce dress codes.
In the late 70s or early 80s I had a t-shirt with a picture of two geese mating in flight. The caption underneath said "Fly United." I also had on
with pigs in a similar position entitled "Makin Bacon." I wore both shirts quite often.
The difference is where I didn't wear them. I didn't wear them while visiting my mom. I never wore them to church. As a matter of fact, the only
places I did wear them were to concerts, bars, and parties.
Why did I self censor? Because it would be inappropriate to wear them where they would cause offense. I understood that these shirts would be
offensive to some folks and I only wore them where that sort of thing would be appropriate. I feel that it is infantile to wear something offensive
and the become upset when someone is offended.
