Apparently, many Southwest Airlines passengers are not flying out of John Wayne airport, where two weekends ago, two women were seen barely clad, strutting their stuff. One look around the aiport is enough to convince a person that there is a "dress" standard that involves a certain amount of cover up, which is NOT oppressive, burka comments from other bloggers aside. Even teenage girls and boys, who daily experiment with new fashion styles, are snickering at these people.
How do the bloggers here define the limit? If a woman shows up looking like a Victoria's Secret model in a photo shoot, that makes them happy and they'll either ogle or look the other way? Is a bathing suit adequite attire for riding a subway, a bus, an airplane? Sorry!! I have a 10 year old son, and women wearing 4 inch heels, the briefest of shorts, bare midriffs and plunging necklines that display more than ample cleavage, especially when they bend over from the waist to dig through their bags looking for their ID ("Whoops! I didn't realize that I needed to show you THAT!") make even HIM uncomfortable.
I am thankful there are people who have the courage to stand up on behalf of the other hundreds of thousands of people who pass through airport every day. These underdressed passengers SHOULD be embarassed that they are asked to cover up, though they should not be intentionally humiliated or abused.
