    So, those of you defending him being asked to remove his t-shirt on the grounds that it might make others nervous, what would you do if a guy (or even a female) came on the plane with scary tattoos? Maybe tattoos of guns and knives, threatening tattoos. Would it be okay for them to make him or her cover their tattoos because they make others nervous? After all, in this day and age, shouldn't people know better than to get those tattoos and still want to fly on an airplane because of other people's stereotypes and misconceptions? Isn't that what the world is all about these days, catering to the people who stereotype and take things the wrong way? Heaven knows we wouldn't want to try to challenge or change those misconceptions or overreactions.

    He wasn't asked to remove the shirt, she airline attendant left after speaking with him supposedly to get another shirt but she never came back andasked him to take it off or to cover it up. That's why I don't get what the big deal is.

It said the airline attendant saw the shirt and never came back, perhaps someone saw part of the shirt with the top part being obscured by folds of fabric and just wondered what kind of person would get on a plane wearing a shirt that said "prepare to die." Once they understood it was in the context of a known movie quote the matter was dropped. Why in the world is this even in the news, other than it being sort of funny, it's not news.
    I flip out if I board a plane and see these people!!!



    but I call Homeland Security right away if I see these people even driving near the airport!!

    I resent that. Some of my best friends are racists. I even let them use my bathroom.

    I wasn't defending the airline necessarily, I was just saying in today's climate he might have made a better decision on what to wear on an airplane. Tattoos are permanent, not the same thing. Comparing it to bias against tattoos and skin color is blowing it out of proportion. All I'm saying is that out of his whole wardrobe, another shirt might have been a better choice on that day. Is it silly for people to be freaked by a movie quote? Sure, but flying can be a touchy thing these days, not saying that people are right by being so sensitive, but it's well known they are, so why stir the pot unnecessarily?

    I doubt he was stirring the pot though. It probably never occurred to him that someone would freak out over that.

    If I had that shirt it wouldn't even occur to me that it would make people nervous on a plane.

    True, he may not have thought about it.

    I don't know why, but this oddly reminds me of the time my husband tried to wear a shirt from a seafood place called Crabby Dick's that had a double entendre saying about crabs and dicks to a casual BBQ Christening party. He had no clue it might be inappropriate until I pointed it out.

    ETA: He's not as dumb as this makes him sound, he's just a typical man about clothes...one shirt is as good as any other to him.

    I would insist my husband wear a shirt saying Crabby Dicks to a christening BBQ but only if we were flying there.
