You are totally wrong. Lacking a posted written dress code, you cannot arbitrarily pick and choose which passenger's attire is "appropriate" or "inappropriate." To do so violates the Freedom of Speech/expression and Equal Protection sections of the US Constitution. The only exception might (and I emphasise - might) be if a passenger's attire clearly and openly displayed male or femal genitals.
I have often seen a nursing mother on SW flights displaying a lot more of her breast than the young woman you tried to deboard. I have seen men with very open tank tops displaying a lot more chest than the young woman you tried to deboard.
As far as SW being a "family" airline; what do you think the other airlines are? I have never been asked if I had a family on SW, Alaska, NW, United, TWA, Western, Continental, Pioneer, or any other airline. No other airline, to my knowledge, has a dress code other than the common law protections against public displays of genetalia.
Who do you think you are? The US Taliban? This is exactly the kind of think you might expect in Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan.
You can be sure I will never fly on SW again unless you issue a personal and public appology, admit your error, promise to behave yourselves in the future.
