A happy couple boarded a Southwest Airlines flight with the man pulling the woman behind him on leash.
A Man, A Woman, And A Leash On Southwest Airlines
The question here is think of the children! Like, what do I say to my five-year-old when he says, “Daddy, why does that woman have a leash around her neck? Why is he pulling her?”
“Well son, when two people love each other…”
Nah, not going to have that conversation quite yet.
I don’t think the leash is in good taste. Some see it as demeaning to women, regardless of consent. Plus, I’m not sure where you draw the line between being desperate for attention and simply living your life.
I won’t lose any sleep over this and would not have complained if I was on the flight. If I were a flight attendant I probably would have let it go too. But I do think Southwest’s ambiguous dress code could have stopped the couple from parading through the aisle like that.
I’m not into public displays of affection…even a quick kiss. And out of consideration for the more sensitive, even if I was into this sort of thing I would not expose others to it.
But that’s clearly not the world we live in.
