In a country based on freedom of expression and in which anti-choice, anti-woman, anti-gay protestors and harassers have free reign for their campaigns to control women, we can not allow even one woman to be silenced because her pro-choice t-shirt "offends" American Airlines' staff.

      The person who was out of line, and should have been pulled from the flight, was the Captain.

      Your company provides a service to the passengers. Your censorship of this woman's shirt is offensive at a level that goes to the heart of our country -- the right to political speech.

      Nobody would have been harmed by her shirt. Some might choose to be offended -- but that is their choice, and it is not your duty, nor even your right, to intervene on their behalf.

      It is not your job to protect people from exposure to ideas that might differ from theirs.
