Some Lousy Stripper Is Upset Because She Wasn't Allowed On Her JetBlue Flight Dressed As A Lousy Stripper
This is Maggie McMuffin. Maggie is a burlesque performer and also a friend. This is what she was wearing last week when JetBlue told her she was dressed inappropriately and couldn't board the flight from Boston to Seattle she had paid for. She was connecting in Boston from NYC, also a JetBlue flight - which had no issues with the way she was dressed.
No explanation was given except that the pilot said her clothes would prevent her boarding the plane. The flight lead asked if she had anything else to wear, and told her if she didn't they could rebook the flight for her. Maggie ended up having to go to another terminal to buy a pair of women's sleep shorts in XL for "proper coverage".
Despite contacting Jet Blue at length, all they have done to "make it right" is refund her for the swim trunks and give her less than $200 in credit. The company apologized but the pilot did not. They have not offered any explanation for their behavior.
Sexism is alive and well in this world. How does what Maggie was wearing effect her ability to fly? It doesn't.
Please share this status. Make this go viral. Maggie did not deserve to be treated like this.
Do we have an update on what strip club/burlesque bar Maggie works at so I can avoid that place of business like I went halfsies on an abortion with one of their regulars? Seriously, people are paying to watch that women take OFF her clothes? I would pay double to buy her some matching animal print sweatpants just so I could finish my cocktail without leaving her buried up to the top of her knee-highs in my projectile vomit.
Whatever, obviously that outfit floats somebody's boat enough to keep her employed so I won't criticize her choice of profession too much. That said, I will criticize her bringing her profession to the airport with her. Hey Mags, you want to be able to fly without hassle? How about actively avoiding reasons in which you would be hassled? That includes showering and changing after having a bunch of old men breathe their stale pervert breath all over your oversized work panties during the midnight shift. The airport - and more so the process of flying - sucks for everyone, but it sucks far more when looking at the pasty thighs of a woman that would likely light up like a fucking Christmas tree if she was hit with a black light. TSA's entire job is to shame people, so if you don't want to subjected to that shaming then don't show up dressed like someone that deserves to be shamed. Wearing the sexy zebra halloween costume from the 'Big and Tall' section is getting you flagged every time, and as someone that doesn't like to sit next to scantily clad women unless they are at least mildly attractive, I appreciate the airlines diligence in upholding some semblance of a dress code.
P.S. Maggie McMuffin? I don't know if that is a real name or a stripper name but it sucks to the highest of heavens just the same.
