Guess what year this was published in an editorial!

(if the image has stopped working, it says "Women in bars mean trouble. Any policeman can testify that, even forgetting the unfemininity of it, women in bars are headaches. And how about the poor man who wants some escape from women?")

The answer is 1964, because women had been legally banned from bars in many New Jersey cities starting in the 1930's, 40's, and 50's. The NJ Supreme Court did not rule that the women-in-bars ban was unconstitutional until 1969, Hoboken lifted its ban in 1971, and Jersey City did not officially lift its ban until 1974.

From 1953 through 1970, United offered men-only flights between New York and Chicago and between Los Angeles and San Francisco. No women (passengers, that is; of course the stewardesses were female), no children, complementary cigars.

I for one regret the loss of male camaraderie free of homo eroticism.

Pretty sure a men’s only flight from Chicago to San Francisco today will have plenty of homo-eroticism.
