Everyone fly Alaska Airlines! The airline kicked a male passenger off a plane after he catcalled a female flight attendant. Because if there's one place women can feel safe, apparently, it's inside a metal tube hurdling through the sky at hundreds of miles per hour.

The whole incident was documented on Facebook by a passenger named Amber Nelson who was also on board the Oct. 9 flight leaving the Seattle-Tacoma Airport. "Today I had an experience that drove home so powerfully the way it feels to be a woman in the world today," she wrote in the post, which has since gone viral.

She said the passenger called out "ooh, sexy" while the flight attendant was demonstrating how to wear a life vest. She warned him "you need to be respectful" and he responded "c'mon, I'm just playing with you!"

IS THERE ANYTHING MORE INFURIATING?

About ten minutes later, the man was asked to leave the flight. Hallelujah.

Nelson praised the airline for how they handled the incident. "I felt honored as a patron of the airline—and as a woman—because Alaska Airlines supported their staff and those of us on board who were demeaned by another passenger's juvenile and exceedingly disrespectful behavior," she said in her post.

It's a tough world out there for women, but props to Alaska Airlines for supporting women and implementing a no-tolerance approach to sexual harassment. If only the GOP would do the same.
