Banned From Plane For Pro-Choice T-Shirt? Woman Claims Censorship Over Obscene Top

Kim LaCapria

This week's fake outrage award goes to the woman who claims a pro-choice shirt got her banned from an American Airlines flight.

Essentially, the woman, only identified as "O," was ordered to change her top or leave a flight- a top emblazoned with a pro-choice slogan. And one might immediately say, "that's censorship! Don't people have the right to free speech and political views anymore?!"

Except that it seems that the message's delivery and not its content was the issue at hand for the woman banned from a flight due to her pro-choice shirt. Because for some reason, that woman chose the say she was scheduled to fly as the best venue to trot out a shirt that read, "if I wanted the government in my womb, I'd f*** a senator."

Clearly, the profanity was at issue with the woman's shirt, despite the slogan's prominence in recent months as we watch women's reproductive and contraceptive rights take a massive beating politically. Oklahoma Sen. Judy McIntyre (D) was even photographed at a rally with a sign bearing the slogan, and later told HuffPo:

"I saw a sea of signs that caught my eye, but this one in particular -- I loved its offensive language, because it's just as offensive for Republicans of Oklahoma to do what they're doing as it relates to women's bodies. I don't apologize for it."
