Gay Couple Ordered To Stop Kissing And "Touching" Aboard Flight

A gay couple were ordered to stop kissing and "touching" aboard a flight last month. When they protested about the demand by the stewardess, they were ordered to drop the protest or the plane would be diverted. Oh let me guess, they would have been charged with terrorism or some other bullshit trumped up charge. The kissing and "touching" was limited to a head on a shoulder and a kiss on the cheek. Other passengers backed up their story.

The response from the airline was the following:

A spokesman for American Airlines told the US magazine that the crew's injunction to the men was reasonable and had nothing to do with the fact they are gay.

"Our passengers need to recognize that they are in an environment with all ages, backgrounds, creeds, and races," he told the magazine.

He added: "Our understanding is that the level of affection was more than a quick peck on the cheek."

Oh of course, they were practically having sex on the flight. Is that what American Airlines is insinuating? This absolutely has everything to do with the fact that they were gay. Heterosexual couples kiss and touch each other on flights all the time. Yet we don't hear about them being told to stop. Hell, people even have sex in the bathrooms on flights. But they're not singled out over it either. Get off it American Airlines!! Anyone with a brain knows exactly why they were singled out. It's because they're gay, and you couldn't handle that. I hope the couple files a discrimination complaint against the airline.

When will the homophobic bigotry end?
