The war on women's bodies continues...

Another day, another airline scandal. This time, United Airlines has been called out for barring three young girls from a flight due to attire deemed inappropriate by the company. In this case, the “inappropriate” clothing was leggings. Yes, folks. Leggings. The story exploded over the weekend when an outraged onlooker started tweeting about the situation. Twitter kicked into high gear, with users immediately expressing righteous outrage.

However, it turns out that the situation is actually a little more complicated than we all thought. Still not great, mind you, but complicated, namely because (as per usual) people are missing the point.
