The past year has seen a great deal of discussion over the heavy scrutiny that school dress codes put on girls' bodies, but they aren't the only institution infamous for doing so.
Time and time again, we've heard stories about travelers being removed from flights or getting their boarding delayed because of what they were wearing. In at least one case, airline staff apparently thought such a matter was worth getting the police involved.
And in each of these cases, we can see that a big part of the problem stems from the fact that these airlines have policies against lewd or offensive clothing, but rarely define what actually makes an article of clothing offensive. For that reason, that judgement is left up to the discretion of the flight crew, who can widely vary in what they deem appropriate.
But in one recent case that saw a DJ removed from her flight, it seems that the problem had more to do with the false sense of security she experienced and how staff expected her to address a dress code issue than the code itself.
