    So PERFECT! Sharing everywhere. I already know the boycotts have begun. Lets have everyone kissing! and swearing… for good measure. Get this bitch fired!

  2. My husband and I fly SWA a fair amount when we travel. You can bet that’ll change in light of this. SWA can spin this until it gets dizzy and throws up, but it won’t change anything. They still kicked two women off a flight for being publicly gay. That means they don’t need my money.

    To be fair they were not kicked off the plane until the got loud and started cussing the flight attendant. She was only doing her job and asked them to stop because homophobic passengers complained about them kissing. We really should be mad at the people who complained about the ladies showing their love. Granted I would be just as made if I was asked to not kiss my bf on a flight, but making a huge scene is not the way to handle it. Just saying.

      Just for the fact that they were asked in the first place gives them every right to get upset.

      Yes the people who complained sould be blamed. But should Southwest for enabling them and starting this whole event.

      Unless SWA would make the same request of a hetrosexual couple who kissed then they ahve a double standard and are in the wrong IMO
