"KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has produced a Twitter ad meant to pay tribute to Gay Pride events now taking place in Amsterdam. The only thing is, the tweet serves to do the exact opposite.
The ad shows three sets of seat belts. The first consists of two 'female' ends. The second pairs two 'male' ends. The third depicts a male with a female end and is clearly the only seat belt pairing that actually works.
If KLM equipped its aircraft with set number one or number two, its entire fleet would be grounded for safety reasons. And if even one passenger’s seat was outfitted with double male or double female ends, the plane would not even be allowed to pull away from the gate because of the safety hazard presented to that one passenger.
Only the set of 'complementary' seat belts protects passengers from harm. The others have no real value. In fact, they invite danger.
One of the best responses to the airline’s tweet came from Rick Canton: 'Fly Royal Dutch Airlines, where your only chance of surviving a crash is buckling up the heterosexual way.'
If the seat belts, aka 'safety belts' consist of either two male or two female ends, they don’t actually form a 'belt' because they can’t connect. They remain simply two rainbow-colored straps, rendering the term 'belt' a misnomer. As such, the first two pairings do not qualify to be identified as either 'belts' or as devices of 'safety.' Because they are non-complementary, neither term applies.
In this way, the KLM ad offers a perfect explanation of why same-sex 'marriage' is an impossible notion.
