A doctor displays what she wore on-flight that was labelled as too revealing. They say America is s free country, but off duty Dr Tish Rowe found out not so fast. Dr Rowe was leaving Kingston, Jamaica headed to Miami, Florida with her summer look when a
jealous flight attendant put a damp on her summer ensemble. Dr Rowe was stopped by a flight attendant for how she dressed, and was told to cover up her breast and a** with a jacket or face being kicked off the plane. Dr Rowe jumped on social media saying:
So, American Airlines just told me I couldn’t board the flight without putting a jacket over my ASSETS. My shorts covered EVERYTHING but apparently was too distracting to enter the plane. I guess that’s why they are AMERICAN airlines.
Rowe explained her experience with this one flight attendant who had issues with her outfit:
“She looked at me, and these are the parts that are hard to put into words,” Rowe wrote. “She looked at me with the kind of the look that mean girls in high school give a girl that no one likes, like a look of disdain of, ‘You’re nothing.’ And the first words out of her mouth were, ‘Do you have a jacket?’”
When since flight attendants became fashion police? Seriously, worried about the clothes a woman is wearing that is too sexy in their mind. Are we not passed their stone age arena in life. And by law can the flight attendants do this? Dr Rowe displays the ignorance on the flight attendant in photo below essentially making it known that even in her sex clothes- she has a brain….
Dr Rowe was later allowed to board the plane after placing a blanket around her waist which was satisfactory to the flight attendant. The doctor stated that she felt angry and uncomfortable along with feeling sick from her negative interaction with the flight attendant. She quickly resulted to writing about her interaction which she views as therapy for her. Dr Rowe added this to Twitter about the situation, saying:
We are policed for being black. Our bodies are over sexualized as women and we must ADJUST to make everyone around us comfortable. I’ve seen white women with much shorter shorts board a plane without a blink of an eye. I guess if it’s a ‘nice ass’ versus Serena [Williams] booty, it’s OK.
Does it just come down to jealously by pencil thin white woman over a black woman’s curvy, bountiful body or is American Airlines placing a policy in place that is unjust ? I wonder…what does American Airlines believes will happen in-flight of a woman that has dressed sexy?
