Female Pilot Receives Ridiculously Sexist Note from Passenger

WestJet Airlines pilot Carey Steacy, mother of two and pilot for 17 years, received an insanely sexist note from a passenger — “David” in seat 12E — telling her that ‘the cockpit of an airliner is no place for a woman.”  Oh yes, he did.  Check it out for yourself (along with my suggested response):

“FAIR LADY!”

P.S.  Without fair ladies-turned-Women Airforce Service Pilots, aircraft would not have gotten to airfields from the factories in WWII.  Good day, sir.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

  • Wow. Just, wow. What an a**! As a Christian myself, I would also posit that the man never actually read Proverbs 31, because that woman is clearly shown to be strong, capable, and even powerful. The words often translated “virtuous woman” can also be translated “woman of valor.” So take that, Mr. Religious Troglodyte!
