Flying tonight

Actually not. In fact, by lunchtime, I’ll be where I need to be, geographically speaking. But there’s no link like a manufactured tenuous link, so here’s an insurance ad from SA involving aeroplanes for your perusal/enjoyment.

Very good. The jury is still out on this insurance company, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not sure quite how the South African Constitution allows for them to choose to insure one gender but not another (and then, what of those individuals identifying as transgender?).
The only reasons I haven’t delved deeper into this are:

a) There are many more, more important abuses of the Constitution going on, and we shouldn’t distract the experts from their work on those, and
b) It doesn’t really affect me very much. I’m just curious as to how it works and as to what happens when someone starts “1st for Whites”.

In the meantime, the ad people have free rein to stereotype blokes as much as they like, a free rein which they are using… freely.
