Listen Closely...

Some people that I like and respect have taken me down a button-hole or two over this post. After giving it some thought, they're right and I'm wrong. I was much too insulting in my criticism of the Life-loving Fat Lesbian Separatist Feminist (her words, not mine,) and I apologize for laying it on too thick.

With that said, I still strongly disagree with her position, and I stand by my contention that she is wrong to act as if flying on Southwest or any other airline is a "right" when it is merely a privilege. If you chose to travel on their planes, you do so in the manner they prescribe. If you don't like it, start your own airline.

Done, and remember, you'll never here me repeat an apology, so I hope you listened closely the first time.

Your skin is much too thin.

Don't let your apologist friends talk you into apologizing to Jihadists offended by cartoons.

Will your future post read,

"France, I owe you an apology."

Never apologize. Never explain.

Why should you apologize? It is not the airline's fault she is too fat. I saw her picture. She is not just 'fat'; She is a whale.

Maybe airlines should stop selling airline tickets to people who are over a certain weight. I read somewhere that Americans are getting so fat, airplanes have to burn extra fuel to stay in the air. And I suppose this extra expense is supposed to come out of the steward's salary?

I quite agree with you, actually. Accessibility concerns are for those who are disabled - they don't have a choice in the matter. They can't suddenly repair their disability. Ms. Whale, on the other hand, has all sorts of choices, and they start in the diet aisle of WalMart (which I may add is usually twice the width of other aisles). If she can afford to buy all the extra food it takes to maintain that weight, then she can afford to buy the extra ticket.
