You could say that about anything. Wearing shorts and a tank top at a black tie dinner is inappropriate. If the clothing the woman wore in the pic was what wasxworn I dont see anything inappropriate about it.

People need to stop getting offended over anything that they dont like. It’s your personal choice not to wear such clothing. That doesn’t mean it’s illegal for other women to wear such clothing.

This had nothing to do with the pilot; so whatever. Doesn't sound like you're aware that commercial airline pilots don't own the jets. Not sure what you're babbling about smoking for.

He is "the captain of the ship" and is the unchallenged dictator of what happens on his airplane when out of port.

Not disputing that, but again, this story has nothing to do with the pilot.

This girl seems annoying.

If she really had confidence in the way she dressed, she wouldn't make such a big deal out of it.

Nobody likes a hoe, and a global awareness of the term "**** shaming" will never change that.

Here's another article about it:
https://www.news.com.au/travel/trave...4835cc5d8be835

I don't see this as a matter of "****-shaming." She's apparently a casual dresser who prefers the fitness-enthusiast look, and she came across a misunderstanding over whether her top was actually an undergarment. The picture in the article shows the top from the side and with her arms covering the front of her midsection, which is a curious way to demonstrate the top's acceptability. We don't know whether that was the only picture she took, or whether that's the picture the news site chose. In the picture linked in one of the posts above, it does look to me like a sports bra. I wouldn't make that call if I were a flight attendant, but I'd defer to a woman on it.

In the letter from Jetstar, they did apologize to her. In her video at the bottom of the article, her recounting of it didn't say anything about ****-shaming and focused instead on the rudeness with which the flight attendant spoke to her. What I see here is that the ****-shaming comment was a little sloppy and not at the core of her grievance, but the news source's title makes it sound like the core issue.

Probably the author of the article brought in that terminology to make it more click-baity.

I sometimes think more people should have grown up in a semi-sketchy neighborhood near DC, like I did. One thing you learn there, is that you mind your own damn business, because if you don't, you might get shot. You sure as hell don't go around trying to "shame" anybody or "call them out" for whatever gets your britches in a bunch or offends your delicate virgin eyeballs, if you know what's good for you.

Somebody getting all fussy about an outfit like this...seems like somebody who likes to stick their nose in other people's business and make unnecessary drama. She wasn't indecent or unhygienic. Unless the airline has a posted dress code forbidding the exposure of the midriff somewhere, somebody needs to calm down and quit being a nosy Nancy.

But that's just like...my opinion, man.

I think the video at the bottom is a different woman.

I suspect the original woman is possibly a difficult person. The airline apologized and she went off again. The top does look bra like. She was offered a blanket and another passenger offered her a jacket.

It IS a bra. And while there's nothing wrong with it, this falls into the lines of "at what point do we draw the line?" Similar to the bra-less spaghetti-strapped tank-top issue we had going on a while back. If this bra is allowed, another woman may decide that her VS lace bra is the equivalent, since they're both essentially the same thing -- a bra.

I once flew to South Carolina with a woman wearing a Straight-Up Fishnet blouse. Nothin' under it.

Ah, the good old pre-9/11 days...
