It was unfriendly skies for L Word actress Leisha Hailey when she was escorted off a Southwest flight for kissing her girlfriend. The airlines says it was because of behavior, not gender, and that passengers were complaining that the kissing was "excessive." However, Leisha is calling it discrimination and is rallying for a boycott of Southwest on Twitter, tweeting: "Since when is showing affection towards someone you love illegal?"
I wasn't on the flight, but I seriously doubt Southwest would have taken the same actions against a straight couple kissing. And this isn't the first time lesbians showing affection have been unfairly targeted. It's also not the first time Southwest has been accused of discriminating against a group of people. Last year, actor/director Kevin Smith was kicked off a Southwest flight for being "too fat" to fly. I'd hate to be on the airlines' PR team! What do you think of Southwest's actions against its gay passengers? Would you boycott an airlines for discrimination?
