Putting the ‘eff’ in ‘friendly skies’

Gazette staff May 30th, 2012

One Tulsa woman found getting home a lot more trouble than intended.

According to RH Reality Check, a website dedicated to reproductive and sexual health news, American Airlines recently kicked the Tulsan off a flight because of her T-shirt.

No, it wasn’t one of those Warpaint ones that spurred so many death threats. Instead, it read, “If I wanted the government in my womb, I’d fuck a senator.”

The website reported that the slogan has become popular ever since Oklahoma state Sen. Judy Eason McIntyre, D-Tulsa, held a placard with the colorful saying at a Capitol rally in March to protest the personhood legislation.

Asked RH Reality Check editor-in-chief Jodi Jacobson in a May 22 article on the flight flap, “Yes, in some way this obviously has to do with profanity, but where does that stop? Is she allowed to walk into Target? Is she allowed to go to CVS? She was allowed to walk through the airport ... If we women all over this country are being fucked over, and we can’t say that, where does that end?”

At least when Southwest Airlines famously kicked director/actor/whiner Kevin Smith off a flight in 2010, there was a legitimate excuse. That dude is effing huge.
