Airlines ban men from sitting next to children
On Stuff today there was an article about Qantas and Air New Zealands policy of not allowing men to sit next to unaccompanied children, apparently on the assumption that men are not to be trusted. How is this kind of blatent discrimination allowed? Is this a sign of the increasing levels of fear and distrust in our society? Fear perhaps born of the modern independent age and lack of true community?.
