White men also don't think they have to wear masks, from what I've seen at my local convenience stores.

Second-biggest group is men who are POC.

I don't know that it's their color, but having a penis seems to work.

Meanwhile, we women once again must pick up the pieces of the carnage they leave in their wake.

Hmmm...
Let's take out gender, race, and anything else that changes opinions on these issues.

Are they / you / me being an asshole?

On the downside, the REAL assholes who are asked that question will inevitably answer "No. I am not the asshole.

So, we have to have laws that determine asshole-ish behavior. And lawsuits. And lawyers. And jury's.

And we wonder how we change it.

Don't be an asshole.

Or as alternate explanation, the male flight attendant was simply trying to de-escalate the situation when the purser (I.e. the female attendant with a lot more experience) saw what was going on and dealt with the situation in a professional manner. Teachable moment for the new guy but we can do without the racist rants here.

It could be worse. We men only commit 90% or so of violent crime...oh...wait.

Isn't it safer to be in the back part of the plane?

Maybe it was something to do with window seat, or service time.

2021-10-17 12:41:56 PM  
As much as some people like to denigrate flight attendants, such as by calling them sky waitresses, it's really obvious when you have a really good one vs a bad one. I've been on flights with nothing but bad ones and some of the passengers were barely in their seats for taxi, takeoff, and landing. Good ones shut all that crap down with a please and a smile that says to even the drunkest loud mouth that it isn't a request and arguing isn't an option.

I don't see masks on anyone but little old ladies and healthcare workers anymore - other than in the mirror; I didn't make it this far in to die from Delta, and it's clear that trusting the vaccine as a solid floor rather than a safety net for the trapeze is foolish.  And if it does get me, at least I can go without the guilt of thinking of the people I probably exposed before I got sick.

And three quarters of the healthcare workers are wearing them under their noses all sloppy-like.  I don't dare say anything.  Would you like to be criticized after mopping shiat, changing diapers & getting yelled at by old people all day while you struggle with mountains of American healthcare paperwork?  I don't feel that would go over very well.

It was his seat. The issue was he wouldn't allow the black woman to get into the seat next to him, which was hers.

Commenters called the male flight attendant's actions "systemic racism" and "the real problem" featured in the video.

It's not systemic.

2021-10-17 1:16:44 PM  
You know how many times I've seen this issue arise on a plane? Just because somebody is too lazy to move or fails to understand your mortal fear of an identical seat elsewhere does not make them racist.

If I pay for seat X, and you block me from getting to seat X, while not being a member of the airline staff, your reason for blocking me is irrelevant.  You're wrong, full stop.  So sit there, in your wrongness and keep being wrong.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Are masks not required on flights anymore?


It's still federal law but enforcement seems to depend on the airline and the particular flight. I was on an AA flight yesterday and everyone wore a mask, most of them properly. And everyone I saw at PHL was wearing them inside the terminal building.

Are you an idiot?  Your point would only make sense if the woman have told the guy to vacate his seat, she didn't, she asked him to get up so she could get to her already paid for seat and he refused saying he didn't want her sitting next to him and the white attendant was willing to entitle him by having her move to a different seat.

I had the same issue on a West Jet flight a guy was in my seat and didn't want to move. After a long day of traveling and delays I was seconds away from starting some shiat that would have made international news. Thankfully a flight attendant saw the issue and got it sorted out before anybody had to die. This was before Twitter back in the days before every minor annoyance qualified as a major incident. We were tougher back then and just moved on with life.

or the guy just didn't want ANYBODY sitting next to him and was being an asshole about it.

When I did fly, I'd hope that I'd have an empty seat next to me.  It occasionally happened, but when it didn't, I'd just be an adult and deal with it.

not seeing racism (which is a type of "assholery"), just seeing an asshole in a seat and a male flight attendant who only cared about getting the plane off the ground, and not passenger service.

good on the other flight attendant for doing the job properly and not rewarding the asshole.
