I don't, to clarify, think it was discrimination (another passenger made a request to not sit next to a woman, the airline offered the female passenger an upgrade to vacate her seat, she accepted). While this gets at a much larger issue of religion and society (things I won't touch here) it raised a very interesting discussion inside our car (my ladies were with me - one even sitting RIGHT NEXT TO ME).
All three of us had different takes on this situation.
- The kid didn't care. That is essentially a quote/the entirety of her comment.
- I thought it was handled fine - that the airline coming to ask the woman to move with an improved situation waiting for her was ideal.
- The third person in the car thought the fact that the guy was even indulged in this was nuts.
