US Airways Allows Man To Wear Women's Panties Days After Kicking Off A Flyer For Saggy Pants

 

Days before a college football player was arrested on a US Airways flight at San Francisco airport following a dispute over his saggy pants, the airline allowed another man wearing women’s panties to fly.

A man who flies US Airways in women’s skimpy clothing, including little more than undergarments at times, said Wednesday that he does so to make business travel more fun, and complies with employees’ requests to cover up – though they rarely ask.

The 65-year-old Phoenix man, who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition that his name not be published, said he was unaware that a photo taken of him wearing ladies’ blue underwear and black stockings at the airport in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on June 9 had thrust him into a debate about racial profiling, travelers’ security and appropriate airline attire.

“No one would believe me if I didn’t take his picture,” Tarlow, 40, of Phoenix said. “It was unbelievable.”

US Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder defended the airline’s decision to let the man fly, saying employees acted correctly.

“We don’t have a dress code policy,” Wunder said. “Obviously, if their private parts are exposed, that’s not appropriate…So if they’re not exposing their private parts, they’re allowed to fly.”

The airline has said Marman was exposing a body part on June 15 when he was repeatedly asked to pull up his pants.

His attorney, Joe O’Sullivan, said surveillance video would show his client’s skin was not showing. He accused the airline of racial discrimination since Marman is African American.

So what do you think of the situation?

    What the “F”! If I was sitting next to “Terminal”, the name was given to him by Nik Richie from the the dirty.com, I would be more disturbed than sharing space with a kid who is sagging. What guy does not sag. This man has been spotted in airports across the country and he is dressed in those fashions all the time. thedirty.com website has a lot of pictures of this “Terminal” man posted. I don’t get it.

    Wow they’re gonna pay to make this go away personally if I saw the young mans junk I’d say something like “yo buddy cover that up” but an old man half crossdressed would cause me to avoid using that airline altogether I am not racist or discriminant towards gay bi or straight men or women who crossdress for the matter but atleast do it with taste man or woman you can’t walk around like that and respect yourselves or others around you and finally i’d be willing to bet the young man with sagging pants had baggy boxer shorts on right so unless he kept popping out of them why were you staring at the slot
