Offended at 20,000 feet

Insensitive, Racist, Sexist Airline Safety Video Scrapped

I have hidden the terrible, offensive video below the fold. I am such an old fart, pre-PC cretin, misogynistic raycis that I can’t see a single thing wrong with it. I think it’s charming, sweet, and even a little funny. I think it’s one of the most enjoyable and adorable little films I’ve seen in ages. And I think all the women are gorgeous, from the swimwear models to the ANZ spokesperson to the native Cook Islands dancers. 

That pretty much settles it. If I think it’s great, then in today’s Bizzaro world, you know it’s Satan’s own spew covered in Hitler sauce and served with a double side of Evil Boooosh. I smell sulfur!!

Air New Zealand has scrapped an in-flight video, which features bikini clad Sports Illustrated models, after an online petition signed by thousands said it was offensive.

The airline came under criticism for the “Safety in Paradise” video —featuring models Christie Brinkley, Chrissy Teigen, Hannah Davis and Ariel Meredith running through safety pointers while looking glamorous in their bikinis on the shores of the Cook Islands.

Some 11,000 people signed an online petition asking for it to be removed, claiming it “completely disregarded” passengers who found it offensive.

“This video is culturally insensitive; it disregards those who are conservative by nature and are uncomfortable with its imagery and disregards passengers who have been exposed to sexual assault,” Natasha Young, author of the petition wrote.

I’m fairly Conservative. This vid doesn’t leave me feeling disregarded. Wait, WTF does “feels disregarded” even mean, anyway? Is that like “social justice” or something? And folks who “have been exposed to sexual assault”. Wait, what? Exposed to it? What, you saw someone being raped? Or you were yourself molested? Or were you college roommates with a morning-after accuser? That don’t jive. Anyway, what about it? Do you think that means the rest of the world, especially a distant South Pacific island where they only recently adopted White Man’s crazy idea of wearing clothing anyway, that distant little sparsely populated island where there isn’t anything to do except go to the beach, the empty, private, unseen beach ... do you the rest of the world is going to sit there on the sand in Paradise covered up from nose to toes because you once saw a girl get a surprise kiss from a guy she wasn’t interested in? Or is it the baby, those little people who are naturally naked from the get go, and mostly naked most of the time anyway?

Some people really have a stick up their arse. And I suppose that’s some kind of sexual assault these days too. Funvacs. Sucking all pleasure from life for everyone. Guess they get some kind of sour grapes power rush from that.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
