In Defense of Korean Air Stewardesses

"GI Korea" reports on a classic case of feminists threatening state power against the rights of a company — Will Korean Airlines Stop Hiring Only Female Fight Attendants? Here's the story in a nutshell:
    South Korea's official human rights watchdog urged Korean Air Lines Co. on Wednesday to stop banning male job seekers from applying for flight attendant positions, saying the policy violates a law banning sex discrimination.

    However, Korean Air said it has no intention of abiding by the watchdog's advice because it "seriously" violates an individual company's rights to formulate its own hiring system.
Let Korean Air be Korean Air and let Southwest Airlines be Southwest Airlines. The company faces a "maximum penalty of a 5 million won ($3,810) fine." Comments the GI, "Let’s see, pay a $3,810 fine or keep hiring attractive women that I am willing to bet the majority of the airline’s customers would probably want?"

I hope not to have more than one one-way flight in my future, and I'd rather have one of the lovely (albeit somewhat scary) lasses pictured above than some gay dude serving me my free drinks as my last memory of air travel. That said, I'd jump at the chance to be seated on a long haul flight next to Justin Raimondo, to talk politics and, if I could get a word in edgewise, the religion he was born into.
