Retarted world and most comments here just enforce that. As if someone kissing or showing affection is somehow your business even if you were forced to stare at it for hours.

Ironically, it is spelled "Retarded" (If you don't know why it is ironic, well... that just makes it funnier!)

Also, the term is offensive. As is watching ANYONE making out on a plane... as is having to deal with ANYONE getting agitated with the flight attendents.

See? It wasn't the 'kissing'!! You people are such lemmings!

I KNEW it wasn't what most of you were accusing these women of.


Southwest later insisted the problem was the abusive language, not the kiss. "The conversation escalated to a level that was better resolved on the ground, as opposed to in flight," it said.





After days of incensed reaction from Hailey, her friends and the lesbian and gay community, however, Southwest backtracked, saying it was offering a full refund for the flight and had "reached out to extend goodwill" – a form of words that fell just short of an outright apology.




Enough said. I hope some learned a lesson and stop following the leader.


Oh get OVER yourself. The rest of us made reasonable assumptions. YOU, however, came in with flights of fancy! SO whether you believe the women or not, it turns out they DID get themselves chucked off the plane. Through their own behaviour, no less. You sound as if you're as pompous as the women in the story.

First off, I stopped doing 'likelihoods' back on Sept 11, 2001 so that doesn't work for me anymore.

Now how can something theoretical be bollocks? I didn't say it happened. I said for all we know that might have happened BIG difference!

So please, don't come after me so aggressively because no one knows what happened, right? So how can my hypothesis be wrong? They are proposals, not facts! So let's straighten that out first.

Where are the passenger's testimony? How do we even know other passengers were bothered? Because the attendant said so? Really? Hearsay doesn't cut it either.


Am I to understand that your position is that no one ever does anything out of spite.....ever? Especially causing trouble to an alternative lifestyle couple? Really?


You're putting the onus if not the blame on these women. Like they HAD to have done SOMETHING more than what they're saying.....


I on the other hand am exploring the possibility that it MIGHT'VE been the flight attendant whose was the provocateur and either made this up and/or exaggerated the issue to get these women or woman in trouble.

Again, why is my scenario so off the wall? Because I am thinking outside the box and against the majority?
There is very little to go on so......give me a break!


September 11? Irrelevant to this discussion. Am I to understand that your position is that of 'anything can happen'? Incorrect. The Yankee candle on my bedside table isn't about to turn into a giraffe anytime soon so that argument holds no water either.

Please stop trying to champion the cause of poor innocent gay people. Firstly, we're quite capable of doing that on our own, thanks all the same. Gay people aren't angels sent to test the mettle of homophobes. We're people just like everyone else on the planet, with all the flaws and good points of everyone who isn't gay. And that includes arrogance, hubris, the need for attention and in some cases, downright idiocy. Some gay people are also absolutely amazing but for the most part, we're just like everyone else with one small difference.

Your argument that everyone else on the plane was out to 'get' the two women has been shown to be completely incorrect. Whether it was their kissing or their language that got them thrown off the plane, it was their own fault, and that is the point I was making. Your wild theories made just as much sense as some of the 9/11 theories I assume you subscribe to, going by your post. And let me make it clear that I don't believe the official story either. I do, however, employ common sense and reasoning which is something you might want to start doing.

I never claimed that people don't do things to others out of spite but that argument has been shown to be incorrect also. Like I said earlier, people don't get thrown off planes for their sexuality.

You can think outside the box as much as you like and I applaud you for doing so, but you can't apply to your feelings about 9/11 to all other situations. Sometimes things are exactly as they seem.

If you have a problem with people making out then dont watch. Or get strong meds. It's not your business.

I knew I didn't like Southwestern when they decided to charge fat people double.

I never flew Southwestern when they weren't overbooked. So they suck at reservations, they don't really like fat people, and they don't really like gays.

I am so glad I have a broom to ride.

Not sure what side of the fence you are regarding this, but if you are of the belief that somehow this was an injustice then I would respectfully like to point out that it has nothing to do with affection being anybodies business. It does however, have everything to do with the airlines policy. I'm pretty sure it's not appropriate to "show your affection" in most public places outside of some hand holding or an innocent kiss. If someone was offended it most likely had nothing to do with who was kissing, but rather the extent at which they were kissing. I'm sure a couple of lesbians giving each other a kiss, in an appropriate matter, in the way that I would kiss my other half when I'm crammed into a plane with 1 or 200 other people, would not get them thrown off of a flight.

If it isn't my business don't make it my business. Makes sense right? Because the second you start acting like a teenager in front of 200 other people, you've pretty much made it our business. By your theory if I witnessed a crime in progress, let's say an assault, I shouldn't call for help or acknowledge it because it isn't my business. Correct? And before you chime in with "those are two different arguments" or "those are two totally different situations", they really aren't. Anything you do or say in public, is in fact the rest of the world's business. Whether you like that or not. So are you saying people, gay, straight, or indifferent just be allowed to scream vulgarities and perform sexual acts anywhere they please? Why shouldn't they? It isn't your business. I've been a season ticket holder of a pretty popular collegiate football team for pretty much the duration of my entire life. There are a handful of people in my section that like to scream the words ##profanity### etc. Now, it makes me cringe when I hear it, not because I don't ever speak with a foul mouth, I do all of the time, when I know I'm not running the risk of pissing someone else off and ruining an experience for them. Have I let one slip a time or two, sure. But I certainly wouldn't appreciate some 30 something year old man screaming f bombs every time something went wrong, while my child is sitting 3 feet from him and this fact is blatantly obvious to the man with the mouth of a sailor. The only reason I don't bitch about it, is because I have a little thicker skin than most, and you are right, for the most part it isn't my business, and the people that really just don't want to hear it generally point it out to the people that are there who are designated to receive those types of complaints, and then they handle the situation. And get this...sometimes nobody even has to complain, the people who would handle the complaints do something about it without being asked. Disgusting world we live in, I can't cuss, or smack my girlfriend, or spank my child, or receive oral sex...or, wait for it........make out ANYWHERE I WANT. What a sham right? Because it's nobody else's business if I want to act like a childish prick wherever I please.

You're kind of drifting way offtopic. Assault and sexual acts in public are against the law. Showing affection to someone is not and kissing is not an unlawfull act. By your logic anyone who has an ugly mug is my business if they dare go outside.

Airliners have stupid people and policies. It's been shown several times. Someone might get boot from a plane just for looking like middle eastern person. That's one thing I'm against. Also I'm against the retards who reported this as an offensive behaviour in the first place.

That really says it all right there. Yeah, no one that is barely famous would do something stupid to ruin that barely fame would they Lyndsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Brittany Spears, I can do this all day.



Publicly. Not personally.


I'm out of here.


What planet did you write that from? You think those people have little private issues that only I am privy too or did they go out in a public ball of flame? I am not talking about Mel Gibsons private phone calls, I am talking about his screaming to people that jews start all wars.
You know the difference but then you would have to go back on the argument you are so entrenched in.

So what you're saying is that heavy petting in a crowded public place is A-OK and that no matter how hot and heavy it gets, no one is allowed to say anything because it's not their business? Are you for real? What if I come and have sex with my boyfriend right outside your house, in full view of you and your family? I'm 100% positive you'd have plenty to say about that and you know good and well that it would make you a hypocrite. Get real.

Or make something up? Something that'll make the company look bad? See? I can play that game, too.

If the two women were sitting holding hands, and one leaned over and gave the other a kiss, no ones gonna care. Guarantee it. Going too far. Just what do you think "too far" means?

I haven't displayed any hypocrisy whatsoever in this thread so your response is a gigantic fail on your part. You are claiming that anybody anywhere in public can do whatever they want and other people shouldn't say a damn word about it. You know full well that is absolute garbage and to be perfectly frank, your point of view is moronic at best.

As always there is two sides to every story... I have flown southwest for years and have seen/sat next to the gayest people I've ever seen and I live by San Francisco. They are not Homophobic, I'm sure there was an argument or something that made others uncomfortable because I have never seen anybody harassed. I've flown on a plane with a group of guys with black and pink hair with princesses Tattoo'd on their necks. They were kissing an nobody kicked them off or asked them to stop, they weren't causing a scene or anything so why would they?? I'm guessing they just wanted some attention and see their name in the paper so they made a scene an got themselves kicked off a plane.

You dont even read my reply and you call me a hypocrite. So that kind of fits the definition...

Again your definition kind of hits close to your own ankles. Should you read what is written and then make a reply you might get some level of success.

For whatever reason, you seem to be unable to grasp that it is the EXTENT of the kissing that people are objecting to, not the act itself. Before you tell people to read your posts, you might want to do that yourself and at least TRY to comprehend what is being said.
