Florida woman claims she was thrown off Spirit Airlines flight for cleavage-baring blouse
A South Florida woman claimed she was booted from a Spirit Airlines flight from New Orleans to Fort Lauderdale because of her cleavage-baring blouse.
“It’s not even about money,” the unidentified 21-year-old told Local 10 News. “I was really embarrassed.”
But airline staff said she wasn’t removed from her flight because of her wardrobe, but rather because she was drunk and bothering other passengers.
“Nobody was taken off a plane because of cleavage,” Spirit spokesman Paul Berry told the news station. “People are taken off planes because of their behavior.”
He said the flight attendant, while she was addressing the woman's alleged intoxication, did mention her blouse, but more in passing.
At least two passengers, including Supp, took to Facebook and said the woman was approached by several attendants, all of whom said “her bosom was too exposed.”

A Gay Bear Porn Mag Changed My Life
I never expected to find existential enlightenment from the pages of a porn magazine. But when I was 18, that's exactly what happened, after I wandered into one of Portland's many adult bookstores on a lark.
I was browsing the racks when I came across a bare-chested, lumberjack-built man on the cover of a magazine called BEAR. He wasn't waxed or tanned, and instead of the chiseled bodies on the covers that surrounded him, he was bearded, beefy and hairy all over. To my eyes, he was perfect—and seeing him on the cover of a gay magazine was, in that pre-internet era of the late 80s, a revelation.
For homos like myself, BEAR Magazine was much more than a porn rag. It was my first exposure to a subculture that would come to dominate the next decade of my social life. Seeing that cover made me realize that there were other men out there who were attracted to heavyset, hirsute guys like I was. And the magazine itself heralded a new era for a broad demographic of gay men that until then existed mostly in bars and local clubs.
Olympics plagued by bulging ‘moose knuckles’
Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a pressing issue we need to tackle.
And it involves the Olympic outfits for the Australian male rowers.
After bemoaning the inequality in the men’s and women’s beach volleyball uniforms just two days ago (i.e., women wearing skimpy outfits, men basically wearing pajamas), we must say, it’s refreshing to see the tables turned somewhat. For a fraction of a second, the focus has shifted from the sporting triumph to the physical “attributes” of the male competitors.
For some countries, the lower half of their rowing suit is a demure, modesty-maintaining black.
Now, we like to think that we’re mature adults. We pay our taxes, hold down full-time jobs and fill out the Census (just kidding! — that’s impossible), but it’s difficult to look at that image without turning into a gutter-minded 15-year-old.
PAT PATTERSON: BEING WWE'S FIRST GAY WRESTLER, VINCE MCMAHON RETIRING AND MENTORING THE ROCK
As a teenager in the late 1950s, Pat Patterson packed up his belongings and left his family home in French-speaking Montreal, Canada, and moved to the U.S. to pursue his dream of becoming a top wrestler. The only problem was he couldn’t speak a word of English.
Patterson, with a little in-ring experience behind him in Montreal, hopped on a Greyhound bus to Boston, borrowing the $20 fare from his sister, and tried not to look back. “I was 19-years-old, had no plan and barely any money,” the star recalls in his new autobiography, Accepted: How the First Gay Superstar Changed WWE.
The French-Canadian quickly began to impress promoters in traditional wrestling towns like Boston and Portland, Oregon. He even gained the respect of all-time great Bruno Sammartino, who was as close as wrestling came to having a figure with the stature of Muhammad Ali.
Try Newsweek for only $1.25 per week
Nearly 20 years after he first arrived in the U.S., Patterson reached the pinnacle of his career in 1979 when, aged 38, he was crowned the World Wide Wrestling Federation’s inaugural Intercontinental Champion. To this day, that championship remains one of the most prestigious in the organization that later became World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). What most in the wrestling world didn’t realize, however, was that the new champion was gay.
