But it is the gay and trans people that are the sexual perverts?   Seems to me if we have to ban straight men from being on airplanes because they are unable to control themselves around women and in public.   

Antonio Sherrodd McGarity tried to claim he didn’t do anything wrong and in fact “thought it was kind of kinky,” court documents allege.

A man on a Southwest Airlines flight from Seattle to Phoenix is facing federal charges for pulling down his pants and masturbating at least four times in front of a female passenger, beginning shortly after takeoff, according to a criminal complaint first obtained by The Daily Beast.

Antonio Sherrodd McGarity was arrested by officers from the Phoenix Police Department when Southwest flight 3814 landed at Sky Harbor International Airport on Saturday, the complaint states. However, McGarity told cops that he didn’t do anything wrong and in fact “thought it was kind of kinky,” it says.

The incident started early on in the three-hour flight, when McGarity commenced his indelicate behavior, the filing alleges.

“McGarity was seated in seat 11F and the female witness was seated in seat 11E,” the complaint states. “Shortly after taking off, and while the aircraft was in the air, McGarity exposed his penis by pulling down his pants and shorts and began masturbating.”

 

When the female seated next to him noticed the lewd behavior, she began taking pictures of McGarity. When he fell asleep after masturbating for roughly an hour, the female passenger told a crew member about what she had witnessed and was allowed to move to another seat.

The complaint states that when the Southwest Airlines flight landed, Phoenix Police officers interviewed the woman, who reiterated she had seen McGarity masturbating “on four separate occasions, using both his left and right hands.”

McGarity was also interviewed by FBI agents, who allegedly admitted to his in-flight behavior.

“McGarity advised he asked the female witness if she minded if he masturbates,” the complaint states. “According to McGarity, the female witness put her hands in the air and said, ‘it really doesn’t matter.’”

McGarity thought the response was “kind of kinky” and believed the female was comfortable with him masturbating, the complaint adds.

In a statement to The Daily Beast, a Southwest spokesperson said McGarity had been slapped with a lifetime ban.

“On April 2, we received reports of inappropriate Customer behavior on flight 3814 from SEA to PHX. The situation was reported to Crewmembers while inflight, and the Captain contacted law enforcement to meet the aircraft upon arrival,” the airline said. “We immediately placed the passenger on our No-Fly List, resulting in a lifetime ban from traveling on Southwest.”

It was not immediately clear if McGarity had retained a lawyer.

Last year, a Southwest Airlines pilot was arrested and charged with exposing his genitals during a 2020 flight from Philadelphia to Orlando. That incident was “not witnessed by passengers,” according to court filings.

The Federal Aviation Administration last year ​​launched a whopping 991 investigations into passenger disturbances, a 441 percent increase over 2020. In 2022, there have so far been 1,035 unruly passenger reports, according to FAA data.

  1. This is actually rather humorous. What a nerd! Glad he got banned for his actions. (Wonder if he was a Republican? If so, he probably figured he’d get off. (Whoops! Bad choice of words.)

    1. Hello Nan. Not sure how I missed this comment before, but I love it. Don’t you feel bad for people like this guy? I do. It is one thing for a teenager to be desperate to scratch that itch and even worse for those kids that have been taught it is a horrible sin to relieve themselves, but fully grown adults have no excuse. The entire incel movement where they are seemingly proud of their inability to find anyone who wants to have sex with them and they are unwilling to work on fixing the reasons why. I got into trouble once for suggesting the incel crowd help each other out by just having sex with each other since they were so desperate. But seriously what drugs was this guy doing that he had such a need for relief he needed to do it in public around strangers at such a legal risk. It doesn’t matter if he thought she would like to see him do it that is an issue all on its own, but the idea that he would do a sex act in public knowing how puritan the US is and how quick to put people on the extremely draconian sex offenders list. So if he were that desperate he could have gone to the bathroom for what time was needed. I don’t get these people. But I feel sorry for the woman to have to watch an unwanted sex act, but I feel she missed a great trolling opportunity to really wreck his self esteem.
