Airlines Down-Under Adopt Sane Feminist Logic

It’s always inspiring whenever feminist-style thinking makes an impact in the corporate world.

Air New Zealand and Quantas ban men from sitting next to children on flights.

And rightly too! If given the chance, every man is a potential child-molester or sex-offender. No woman ever is. Men can’t be trusted around innocent and delicate children much in the same way that they can’t be trusted around innocent and delicate womyn. A presumption of guilt is a prudent way of playing it safe.

Auckland man Mark Worsley says an air steward approached him after take-off on the Christchurch to Auckland flight and told him to change seats with a women sitting two rows in front. The steward said it was the airline’s policy that only women were allowed to sit next to unaccompanied children.

“At the time I was so gobsmacked that I moved. I was so embarrassed and just stewed on it for the entire flight.”

Why did they let him go forward, huh? That sends the wrong kind of message. In an equal world, men should be made to move to the back of the damned bus where they can’t bother anybody.

Green MP Keith Locke said today he would be writing to the Human Rights Commission asking it to intervene in what he felt was a clear breach of the Human Rights Act.

The airline needed to recognise that “men are people too”.

“It is prejudicial to presume that men can’t be trusted to have contact with children unless they are related to them or are specially trained,” Locke said.

The nerve of these thin-skinned men! All of this offense-taking is truly a pathetic spectacle. The idea behind the airlines’ policy is not prejudicial because it reflects feminist logic perfectly:

When the Herald asked her if the airline considered male passengers to be dangerous to children, Ms Paul replied: “That’s not what I said.”

See? Male passengers are not a danger to children so it is absolutely vital that men be kept-away from children.

The act of separation means that there is no need to do it. “Separate but equal” makes a really great policy guideline. I wonder where I’ve heard that before?

Anyway, there’s more. So-called “experts” were quick to comment:

A leading psychologist has dismissed as “offensive” and “insane” a policy adopted by Qantas and Air New Zealand’s not to seat men next to unaccompanied children.

As it turns-out, this “psychologist” is actually a fucking MAN, so he’s an ally of child-molestation. But the laughable sniveling which follows is worth a chuckle:

Latta said the policy was sending an “awful” message to society that “all men are pariahs”.

What’s so awful about that message? My fellow vagina-warriors say it all the time.

Latta also suspected the airlines’ policy would contravene human rights legislation against discriminating on the basis of gender.

Wahh! Wahhh! Look at the crybaby.

What you call ‘discrimination’ is what us feminists call ‘advancing the cause of women and children’. It figures that a mere man couldn’t make that distinction.
