Thank-you, Southwest. I wish more people and businesses would stand up like this. I am tired of being confronted with the boobs and underwear - or worse- of total strangers. If she walked past a seated child in that skirt, she gave that kid an eyeful right up her dress. A child standing next to her could see more than he or she needs to as well. That's indecent exposure, as well as just plain garden variety selfishness.
If this girl was so 'embarrassed' to be asked to adjust her clothing, why did she appear on national television (where the same request had to be made?) in the same outfit to repeat the story.
As for freedom- we actually do not have the freedom to wear what we want. She can't go nude, she can't cut open the parts of her shirt that cover her breasts, and a man who got on the plane wearing a skirt that short would be arrested for indecent exposure. We do, however, have the right to say what we want, and that includes the freedom to point out that some people who ought to know better like to dress like prostitutes.
