you are a pervert unless giving up your seat, says British Airways.
We all know that if you are not of white Caucasian appearance, you are being assumed as a terrorist or a drug smuggler at airport security. Authorities may refuse to admit so, but it is pretty well known that the percentage of non-white, non-Caucasians being picked up for detailed and often humiliating search is much much higher than white Caucasians. (Of course, they would occasionally randomly pick a few innocent white Caucasians to cover up their racist profiling.)
After the security check point, if you are a male, you will be assumed to be a pervert according to British Airways' policy if there's a youngster decided to travel on the same flight. Of course, you will also be humiliated in view of all other passengers.
BA cabin crew patrol the aisles before take-off to check that youngsters travelling on their own or in a different row from their parents are not seated next to a male stranger.
A 33-year-old hedge fund manager Mirko Fisher, flew with his pregnant wife on the sexual discriminating British Airways. He booked his wife a window seat, and he took the middle seat. Somehow a 12-year-old boy took the other seat of that row. A male steward forced Mr Fisher to move his paid for, assigned and confirmed seat.
Mr Fischer is suing British Airways, and I wish Fischer win the case.
"This policy is branding all men as perverts for no reason," Mr Fischer said.
