    Political Correctness dictates tolerance even if we aren't really sure as to motivations.

    Unfortunately, people do not consider anyone else other than themselves.
    My sensibilities and abhorrent objection for some one in their underwear/swimsuit on public transportation is negated by 'tolerance' and 'political correctives'.
    Now it is a 'free for all' and relegated to the lowest common denominator.
    I hate flying anymore.

    The company should have the right to deny boarding!

    Kinda looks like the milk isle at your local Walmart. I'm calling BS on this.

    Agreed, though I think it may be a little upscale from Walmart.  I just came from Kroger's and they have shelving just like that seen in the background in their drug and toiletries department.

    I am not sure, but I think it is one of those quick grab a sandwich/smoothie/snack places with the portable reach in coolers in the background.

    Was she allowed on the flight?  As far as I know the airline has no power to enforce regulations concerning attire within the terminal area itself, unfortunately that is still a "free speech zone".  What can you do?  Now, if she herself is a Concierge Key™ or her daddy is, or she's some other top-tier flyer who brings top revenue, I expect maybe the rules might be relaxed somewhat in the name of customer service.  That is what I always heard regarding the gentleman who flies in lingerie.
     
    Besides just being stupid the shirt is clearly in bad taste, but I think she has more guts wearing it outright than the moralistic hens she's set off squawking about it; none of whom would probably have confronted her in person about it but instead came to the internet to tut about it, bravely and anonymously of course.
     
    Y'all's saying she needs to curb her freedom of expression on account of your sensitivities...who's being politically correct now?

    No, they are saying she is acting like a fool and that the shirt she is wearing serves no purpose other than to get attention.
     
    I think you have confused "freedom of speech" with "acting like an idiot to get attention".
     
    I think Monica Lewinsky summed it up best.
     
    "“We all want to be heard, but let’s acknowledge the difference between speaking up with intention and speaking up for attention.”

    Our Freedom of Speech exists so that we are able to hear all of those speaking with intention. It does not exist to serve the needs of those seeking attention.

    Congrats on breaking the one sentence barrier.
     
    I would answer your question if I had an ounce of respect for you.
     
    I might have some respect for you if you had not spent the last few years posting stupid, asinine comments.

    You made your decisions.
     
    Decisions have consequences.
     
    You have spent years making yourself an irritant with pointless, asinine comments, now I have no respect for you.
     
    I know you libtards hate the idea of taking personal responsibility and accepting consequences for your decisions and behavior.
     
    It's not my fault I don't respect you, it's yours. Own it.
