Given the way some people dress today I don't see what the problem is here, but apparently the pilot thought they were too short. I wonder if the pilot is a woman (lol) and I would appreciate some comments on this from our female contingent as they always possess a far more critical eye than a mere male such as myself. Be that as it may, here's the story.

SEATTLE (KOMO) -- A Seattle burlesque dancer says an airline stripped away her dignity when they told her to change her clothes if she wanted to fly.

The performer, whose stage name is Maggie McMuffin, says she was flying on JetBlue when an airline worker approached and said the pilot decided her shorts were inappropriate. McMuffin says it was her only outfit and offered a compromise.

"I could tie a sweater around my waist," she said. "I could get a blanket from you guys, and they said, 'If you don't change your clothes, you're not going to be able to board this flight.' "

Passengers at SeaTac Airport had mixed reactions to the story. Some travelers, such as Maryanne Garner, said the shorts aren't appropriate for flying.

"I would hate to sit next to someone dressed like that, honestly," she said.

But others, like Kendall Merry, says "to each their own."

"I wouldn't wear them on a plane, but she is welcome to," Merry said.

A JetBlue spokesperson says, "Our contract of carriage allows JetBlue to deny boarding to any customer whose clothing may be offensive to the viewing public." The spokesperson also said, "we support our crewmembers' discretion to make these difficult decisions."

Starting trouble eh Cincy.

Considering what one sees on the red carpet or at the beach or the food store for that matter, that outfit was downright modest. Who were they afraid of upsetting ... some of our recent refugee immigrants traipsing about with bags over their heads ?

@algernonpj
Cincy has been frustrated before when our female members remain mum and don't comment on one of his "juicy" stories.

I'll have to say they made a rather arbitrary decision here. I'm with Al Gore on this one [and algernon and cincy].



It certainly appears there is, no controlling legal authority here that says short pants will void your ticket to ride!

She's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
But she don't care

She said that living with me
Is bringing her down, yeah
For she would never be free
When I was around

She's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
But she don't care

I don't know why she's riding so high
She ought to think twice
She ought to do right by me
Before she gets to saying goodbye
She ought to think twice
She ought to do right by me

I think I'm gonna be sad
I think it's today, yeah
The girl that's driving me mad
Is going away, yeah

Oh, she's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
But she don't care

I don't know why she's riding so high
She ought to think twice
She ought to do right by me
Before she gets to saying goodbye
She ought to think twice
She ought to do right by me

She said that living with me
Is bringing her down, yeah
For she would never be free
When I was around

Ah, she's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
She's got a ticket to ride
But she don't care

My baby don't care, my baby don't care
My baby don't care, my baby don't care

Here's a somewhat related article from a woman's perspective;

Enough with Hollywood’s Pendulous Boobery
Michelle Malkin
May 24, 2016,

From runways to red carpets to Instagram and Snapchat, celebrity overexposure is inescapable. We’re drowning in underboob. Bombarded with sideboob. Nip slips. Crotch slips. Bare-bottom flashes. All of the above, all at once.

The problem, my fellow Americans, is not that we live in an age of wardrobe malfunctions. It’s that we live in an age of dignity malfunctions.

It’s one thing for the notorious Kim Kardashian, sex-tape celebrity-turned-sex-tape celebrity, to trounce into the Rome Opera House flashing her cartoon cleavage and industrial-strength Spanx for the cameras as she did last weekend.

The trouble is that the Kardashian deviancy is now the norm among female entertainers who consider themselves trailblazing feminists.

Oh Dear, Jet Blue just apologized.....

JetBlue apologizes for banning burlesque dancer wearing 'inappropriate' outfit

A burlesque dancer is accusing JetBlue of "slut shaming" after she was asked to change her clothes before boarding a flight from Boston to Seattle.

Maggie McMuffin (a stage name used by the passenger) says she was returning home on May 18 after several performances on the east coast when a JetBlue crew member told her that the outfit she was wearing wasn’t fit to fly.

"A few minutes before boarding was set to start, the gate lead approached me and said there was a problem and that what I was wearing was not appropriate," McMuffin told KING news. The dancer says she had been waiting in the boarding area for about 45 minutes before anyone approached her.

McMuffin was wearing a tiger sweater with striped black and white Daisy Dukes and thigh-highs—and she had already worn the same outfit on the first leg of her flight that day from New York to Boston, also on JetBlue.

She said the gate agent apologized then told her that what she "was wearing was not appropriate and the flight crew had discussed it and the pilot had decided that I needed to put something else on or I would not be allowed to board the flight.”

She explained that she didn’t have anything else with her—even suggesting she wrap her sweater around her legs or wear a blanket-- at which point she says the JetBlue crewmember suggested she go buy something. Instead of missing her flight, McMuffin ran through the airport terminal and purchased a $22 paid of pajama bottoms to cover up.

There is some truth to this but there is also a dual rationale for it.

(1) Women have a different perspective on events, especially those involving women. I love to hear what they have to say on such subjects, or at least I think those I perceive oriented in some way toward women.

(2) I have always found the women on this forum to have particularly acute intelligence and I enjoy what they have to say, especially when in involves issues such as under (1) above.

What an article! LOL.

Well I personally wouldn't be caught dead in those shorts. I'd feel like a reject from Alcatraz back in the 30's.....just don't do stripes. Heh.

With that said couple of observations:

1) Have these guys seen what Hollywood wears out in public? At least this gal's butt is covered, short yeah, but covered. Some of the stuff I've seen from the left coast can't even say that these days.

2) Honestly, I'm more offended by the burkas they allow on the plane. Who the heck knows what weaponry is hidden under those things~! And yeah, they do pack some, ask me how I know. At least with this woman I can tell she hasn't got a bomb under there anywhere.

3) And then there's the TSA. I have to go through a nude scanner and they are worried about the shorts? Seriously?!?!?

One thing that is not mentioned that I could see.....was this pilot by chance a Muslim? If so, explains a lot.
