WestJet-note

On Sunday, a sexist note, scrawled on a napkin, was left for WestJet pilot Carey Steacy.

You see, Steacy is a woman and ‘David’ feels that “a cockpit is no place for a woman.” He also feels that “being a mother is the most honor. Not as captain.” He then goes on to admonish, “We’re short on mothers, not pilots, WestJet.”

THERE’S A NATIONAL MOTHER SHORTAGE, PEOPLE. BRACE YOURSELVES.

David also wishes that WestJet would alert him when “a fair lady is at the helm” so that he can “book another flight.” (I’m guessing the reason he feels women are incompetent at the controls of an airplane is BECAUSE PERIODS.)

Steacy posted a response of her own to her Facebook page:

I respectfully disagree with your opinion that the ‘cockpit’ (we now call it the flight deck as no cocks are required) is no place for a lady. In fact, there are no places that are not for ladies anymore.

Get it, girl.
