Some readers may have missed the news this week of Virgin Australia being the latest airline exposed as believing all men are paedophiles who cannot be trusted to sit next to unaccompanied children. This type of misandry in airlines goes back at least 12 years now and we've covered it plenty of times before, for example when British Airways were forced to withdraw the policy by equality hero Mirko Fischer.
Virgin say they are going to "review" the policy, but to m even that's unacceptable. I know it's sexist, as do readers, as do they, and when discriminating like this in such a disgusting and harmful manner then the only logical and decent action is to stop immediately and apologise. Some of the news coverage has been particularly good this time around, and it's interesting how the story has spread to different countries, so rather than say any more I'll simply share some of the links with you:
