Women sure have been doing it for years including serving in the military flying various aircrafts. The airlines don't screen for people based on their sexual orientation, there's not a question on any test or application, which requires someone to reveal their orientation. This would be ridiculous. But, it doesn't matter. Common sense and logic have been thrown out by liberals. And their modes operando is to scream at anyone trying to share the truth. Attacking them personally instead of debating an issue.
The problem with their pitiful argument is that the cockpit has no gender connotations. It was a word that morphed over centuries, when planes weren't even invented. Most historians place the origin of the word in the 1500's and that it had to do with locations in boats and ships. When planes were invented, they used the word "cockpit," just as vessels before it.
Does the above truth matter? No. Liberals create a world which doesn't exist. Just like their critical race theory. Disgusting!
