According to British Airways

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1243625/Businessman-Mirko-Fischer-sues-British-Airwars-treating-men-like-perverts.html

Quote:
A businessman is suing British Airways over a policy that bans male passengers from sitting next to children they don't know - even if the child's parents are on the same flight.
Mirko Fischer has accused the airline of branding all men as potential sex offenders and says innocent travellers are being publicly humiliated.
In line with the policy, BA cabin crew patrol the aisles before take-off checking that youngsters travelling on their own or in a different row from their parents are not next to a male stranger.


So now all men are pewrverts?
Remind me not to fly BA.

@mysteryman,
would someone please clue me in on how you go about molesting a kid sitting next to you while in flight? I dont get it, when I molest my wife in flight we need to have a blanket over our laps (and airlines no longer have bankets so now we would need to bring our own), this seems impossible to get away with with in the context of child molester/victim.

@djjd62,
It's worse when they sit behind you and kick your seat. Maybe we need a children's area on airplanes - they could run around a little, play with some toys and we would all be safer.

The only thing worse than having rambunctious kids next to you is having some couple groping each other.

You've obviously never been on a plane full of travel agents.

Well, we take extraordinary measures to keep terrorists off of planes. Why wouldn't we take a little extra measure to protect the kids from strangers?

An incident I heard about was when BA tried to separate Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, from his own children! Apparently they said in alarmed voices, "But he's our dad!" The policy has been in place since 2001, and is also operated by Qantas and Air New Zealand. I recently sat next to a charming little girl of about 7 on an easyJet flight from Barcelona to London, who told me all about her school, her dog, her violin lessons (which she lowered her voice to tell me she hated, "but don't tell my Ma") and her annoying big sister, who was sitting 3 rows ahead with the parents. After we landed her mother thanked me for keeping my little friend amused. It was she who kept me amused.

@mysteryman,
I remember when my old university first began offering escort services on campus for women walking to out of the way places at night as there was a number of bad happenings by off campus young males in a short time frame.

No males needed to apply as women was only safe around others women it would seem and of course no woman would be sexually misappropriate to another woman.

This was many decades age and it raised one hell of a fire storm as every male on campus feel like his personal honor was being call into question most likely by males hating bull dikes beside.

If memory serve me correctly the university just drop the program completely as a result.

Not to worry. It's natural that you would be troubled about being labeled a child molester, djjd62.

Oh, my normally bright wife came up with a wonderful idea on how I might find homes for three kittens and that was to walk over to the park next door and show them off to the families that full the park on weekends and for some reason her and my mind was not in gear that day and my reply was that is a great idea. See you in an hour or so was my comment on leaving.

Now if my wife had been along or if she had been there alone I am sure there would have not been a problem. As anyone might had guess who brains was in working order however after twenty minutes or so of drawing a large crowd of children and informing them that if they could just get a parent to come over and agree all three kittens was open for adoption a woman park employee with a ugly look on her face came hurrying over to inform me that animals was not allow in the park and they and I would need to leave at once.

It funny neither one of us before hand ever gave a moment consideration of how good a fit I was to the serotype of the old evil male pedophile luring children away in a park with the use of pets as bait.

Only male strangers? Have you been reading the news of late concerning cases of women bad acts involving children?

Now the best way to protect the little dears would be to fly them on their own flights with just their parents.

I could then go back to just plain headsets instead of the noise canceling ones I now need to use on most flights.

@BillRM,
I did not set the policy. If they extended it to include women, I would not object.

@edgarblythe,
so we are supposed to let the smallest humans take up a row of either 2 or three seats, when everybody else is crammed like sardines, maybe even fly with empty seats while bumping passengers with tickets??!!

This is the kind of thing that I am talking about when I say that delusions of achieving safety have made moderns insane. We are no longer capable of determining reasonable courses of action, and then pursuing them.

That's not fair ehBeth. Being sat next to a kid and having a desire to sit next to a kid for dubious reasons are obviously different.

You don't know who you are sitting next to until you get on the plane usually. I think that if BA wants to make this policy, they need to do it before people get on the plane. If I was sitting in my window seat and then a kid sat next to me, and either I or he/she was moved because of who I am, I would be offended/humiliated/angry too.

I don't object to protecting our children, but I think this is knee jerk and builds a new stigma against men for a threat that I'm not even aware of. Is there any sort of history of child abuse on planes in the first place? If not, this makes even less sense.

(sarcasm)
What next, separating men and women on the planes? Perhaps we can prevent hate crimes be separating races? I mean, everyone here hates hate crimes right? Yeah, I thought so. Let's separate everyone!

ehBeth,

What a sleezy personal attack. I have never seen you stoop so low. Mysteryman is disagreeing with the policy on the grounds it is unfair. Insinuating that this means he is a pedophile is uncalled for.
