Sanctimonious Censorship Vs. Sanctioned Smut: Just How Friendly Are Those Skies, Delta?

Delta Airlines is the latest multi-million dollar corporation to cave to the leftists and their demands of “inclusivity.”

They used to offer edited versions of in-flight movies such as “Booksmart” and “Rocketman.” But then along came the harpies.

“Booksmart” director Olivia Wilde was on a flight when she noticed that lesbian sex scenes and words involving female genitalia were missing from the film.

Wilde has since encouraged every airline everywhere to stop working with the editing service that deleted the same-sex hookup scenes.

Entertainment Weekly’s digital director, Shana Naomi Krochmal, also noted that Delta’s version of the Elton John biopic was missing certain…details.

Besides the two directors, a whole lot of other folks got a bit ranty on social media over the edits. Delta has since restored the cut scenes on both movies.

Why? Because of diversity and inclusivity, I guess – those nauseating SJW buzzwords defined as “our liberal worldview matters more than yours, conservatives, so suck it.”

Here’s what Delta had to say regarding the LGBTQ+ scene cuts:

“We value our in-flight entertainment options as a means to reflect the diversity of the world. We are reviewing the processes of our third-party editing vendors to ensure that they are aligned with our values of diversity and inclusion.”

Well, that’s just really great, Delta. Way to prove you’re enlightened. See my slow clap?

But what about the sweet little old granny who has to walk past someone’s screen to use your pathetically tiny restroom? Are these entertainment options and editing processes aligned with her values?

Or how about that 11-year-old boy who might suddenly get very curious about that near-porn the guy in front of him is watching? Will you be there when his parents have to answer awkward questions?

This isn’t about being homophobic. What two consenting adults do in the privacy of their own home is not my concern. And it isn’t about censorship, either. I work in a public library and fully support the First Amendment. Yet even there, our computer lab policy is quite clear about what kinds of material patrons can access.

If anyone else might be able to see what another passenger is watching – even accidentally – shouldn’t all in-flight movies be suitable for any age? You couldn’t get away with letting just anybody into a movie theater showing R-rated films, yet they’re somehow magically sanctioned on an airplane?

Don’t misunderstand. I’m not trying to tell anyone what they can and can’t watch, or should or shouldn’t do – and I’d appreciate being shown the same courtesy.

Appropriateness in a public venue is the point here. This might be difficult to face, SJWs and LGBTQ-plussers, but IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU. Maybe, I don’t know…listen to some tunes or take a nap. Try acting like adults, instead of whining about adult content. Wait a few hours and watch anything you like when you reach your destination.

Otherwise…get your own rocket, man.
