Dawn Henry, 52, is claiming that Delta Airline’s lack of gender options while choosing plane tickets is a “discriminating” practice that prevents her from buying her 21-year-old child a plane ticket.
Taking to Twitter to air her grievances to the world, Henry lamented that the airline is somehow “not allowing” nonbinary people to fly because it forces them to choose a gender with which they don’t identify. The gender designator on the ticket must match with the form of identification used to fly (usually a passport and/or state-issued ID such as a driver’s license) or the Transportation Security Agency may not allow the person to fly. This, Henry says, is the crux of her argument.
@Delta is discriminating against #nonbinary individuals and not allowing them to fly despite legal ID issued by states that allow X on birth certificates and state-issued IDs. This thread is the ongoing saga of me trying to purchase a ticket for my non-binary adult child. 1/x

She details her entire experience with trying to get an “X” gender marker on her child’s ticket, but was no match for Delta’s policy.
She keeps mentioning that her child isn’t being “allowed to fly” based on gender.
The thread continues to rail against Delta for their “discrimination,” but not all Twitter users were on board with bashing the airline:
If ‘they’ wanted a seat bad enough, just pick any choice. Seems to me that they wanted attention more than a seat 🤷♂️🙄

Just pick one and move on 🤷🏾♂️ It ain’t that serious and I’m sure the airlines nor anyone cares what people identify as.

Hello mother your child is either a male or female. What was the child born as? Boom! that’s what you put on the option to buy your plane ticket.
