Not really. I was mocking the double-standard, and not people of either sexual orientation. Buzz off.

what does sexuality have to do with it? First off, NOWHERE in the article does it state the F/A's sexuality. Second, if you are ASSuming he is gay, you are just stereotyping male F/A's.....and also making an ASS of yourself. Third, if the table was turned and it was a female F/A and it was male passenger who did this, the SAME outcome would occur. So I don't see why it is shocking to see a guy press charges for sexual harassment...regardless of his sexuality. Also, this case is about more than a simple "grab of the ass". This lady got into an argument with the F/A so essentially, she did more than just touched him inappropriately. I say kudos to the F/A for not letting this one go because if it was the other way around, he would be charged for doing the same thing in a heart beat.

I am quite sure this isn't the first time this has happened, but in the post-9/11 era, it sure is stupid and wrong at any time. I would be willing to bet this woman was intoxicated and/or was with a 'hen party' group.

WASHINGTON - A woman was charged Wednesday with sexual assault after an altercation with a flight attendant on an airplane flying from Charlotte, N.C., to London, an official said.

"During the altercation, she grabbed his buttocks," Bruce said, adding that he based that information on police reports.

You just don't touch any part of me especially if I am on the job.

I agree 100% with you on this if it happens in a bar or in whatever public place it'd be between two human beings. But in this case it was following a verbal altercation between a passenger and an airline representative which makes the situation very different.

You guys are pathetic. OK, the F/A was probably gay. I'll give you that. (I'm a gay F/A.) But why on earth would you assume that the lady in question was anything other than a tired old drunken troll? You are (foolishly) assuming that every story involving an airplane contains a hot young girl. (That kind of thinking runs rampant here.)

Maybe all of you would want to read the article more carefully... The woman was arrested and charged with sexual assault by the police, and I believe that the F/A did not sue her.

By the way what she did was a crime. So it was a given for her to be arrested and charged. Even if the F/A did not complain I am very sure someone else on the flight who witnessed the incident would have.

I think it isn't really right to jump to conclusions about people's sexuality here... sensitive topic.

Any F/A, male or female, gay or straight will tell you we get tired of being poked at, patted, knocked on (like we're a front door?), and GRABBED. I had a woman one time who got a handful of my blazer, and literally reeled me in like I was her prized trout.

Nine times out of ten, they're just trying to get our attention, and their manners go out the window. In this instance however, the article alludes to an altercation between the crewmember and the passenger. The passenger then CHOSE to become physical with the flight attendant, obviously as he was walking away. As this followed the altercation, the passenger was likely attempting to demean him. I have a feeling this was less the "flirtatious" tap or pinch, or even a sexual gesture, but more likely a physical action made in anger.

"During the altercation, she grabbed his buttocks," Bruce said, adding that he based that information on police reports


The woman was already in an altercation with the flight attendant when the act occurred

When the airplane landed at Gatwick Airport, Sussex police charged the woman with disrupting a flight and sexual assault, Bruce said.

The more important thing here is that she was arguing with the flight attendant before she grabbed him. She was charged with disrupting the flight. The sexual assault is something that occurred as a result of the altercation. It was not merely a case of the flight attendant walking down the aisle and a woman grabbing his behind.

If a girl is harrassing me and grabbing my ass or any part of my body and I am at work or busy with something. I am not going to be able to enjoy it, because it isnt being done in a more private place, doing that in public is NOT something I like. It humiliates me and demeans me in a way i don't like.

if she persist, you can bet I will call it up as sexual harrasment if she doesn't stop.

If that makes me gay then so be it.

Not EVERY guy, straight or gay likes to be harrassed like that especially in a public manner.

This is PC gone mad. It was an ass grab. BFD. Any male who complains at that is either a prude, or has piles.

Why do they call it the mile high club? Usually you are several miles high? If one was to have sex at a high altitude airport like DEN, ASE, or ABQ would that count?

I don't care what the sexuality of the FA is. If it was a man who grabbed a female FA's butt you still might have got an assault charge. Different people have different thoughts on the subject. There may be some FA's out there that would love to get a butt squeezin' but I am sure most of them would not like that kind of thing from a stranger.

Generally there seem to be a double standard for men. Men are usually seen as the sexual harassers, but women can cross that line too, as seen with this case.

I see women all the time that I want to squeeze their butts, but I can control myself. This woman should have shown some restraint. An aircraft isn't a night club.

Please grow up.
I know there is a double-standard between men and women (and male flight attendants and female flight attendants) but if somebody takes offense to inappropriate touching, it is wrong no matter the gender or sexual orientation of either party.

To OOer and the other hormone-infused teenagers on this site, the flight attendant has the discretion to make a case out of this or not. If he (or she) felt that this was unwelcomed, unwanted, or put the flight attendant into a compromising position, then he/she was right to call the authorities. If it was something that a "Please don't do that again!" could have resolved, then maybe that was another option. We don't know because we were not there.

Not sure if the butt-grabber in question was heinous or anything, but if a hot chick grabbed me derrière and perhaps said something flirty, I'd flirt back.  

But I can understand if the F/A (gay or straight) was offended, but as far as going to the authorities, perhaps a bit exorbitant. HOWEVER...

If it was a man who grabbed a female F/A's cheeks, then, I am almost certain it would go down the way it is now. Equality at its best.

The lack of maturity on this thread is just appalling. What's worse, a lot of the asinine comments are coming from people who are really old enough to know better.

For those of you boys fantasizing about getting your rear grabbed by a woman, this was NOT flirting - it is clearly stated that this was done in the context of an argument, and was done with the same intent as, say, a shove in the chest.

And those of you insinuating that any man who doesn't enjoy getting his rear grabbed, whatever the context, is some kind of "fruit", consider that there are some of us who are married or otherwise in committed relationships who would rather not get felt up by strangers...

True. If the woman grabbed me there in the context of an argument, I see your point. It would just get me more angry and would probablly do the same thing the ole chap did.

BUT, if it was an unsolicited grab, then, I am ok with that, personally. As long as she doesn't look like Sarah Jessica Parker, I am cool with it.  Smile Like I said originally, if it's done in a flirty way, squeeze away.  Smile

This isn't a discriminatory statement, but no straight man would ever file suit over that.

It's a pathetic statement.

I am a straight man and you can bet your bottom dollar if someone grabbed my ass, I'd seek to have her arrested as well.

Uh oh, self appointed political correctness/morality enforcers present on thread. Be aware and follow all instructions or be subjected to an onslaught from the self appointed liberal cause police. You have been warned.

God what I would do to rid the world of all political correctness.

That said, this whole situation seems absurd. I don't believe she grabbed his ass in a loving, flirty fashion. They were in an argument before she performed this action, I believe. Maybe she hit his ass or tried to pinch it or something. Regardless, it's absurd. I definitely wouldn't sue but neither would I protest if she got in trouble after I had gotten into an argument with her. On the other hand, if I was an FA and even if it was some pretty girl touching my behind, I would either politely ask her to stop or somehow avoid her location, because that happening while on the job is a little innapropriate. Now if I was a passenger and I got my ass grabbed, well, that's a different story.  Wink  biggrin   bigthumbsup   sly

I couldn't agree more.
Frankly, I don't see what being straight has to do with the ass-grabbing. Did the passenger ask the FA's orientation first? I doubt it.

It was inappropriate and definitely crossed the line.
