Leisha Hailey was told by the Southwest flight crew to "stop."

It's a sad, sad world we live in when an adult can't kiss another consenting adult in public. Unfortunately, we're still forced to live in such a world because there are still hateful repercussions from those who choose to close their minds to love.

Case in point: yesterday, The L Word actress Leisha Hailey was kicked off a Southwest Airline flight for kissing her girlfriend, Camila Grey, an L.A.-based musician. According to Perez Hilton, the two boarded the plane and were already in their seats when they decided to have a pre-departure kiss. The Southwest flight crew noticed and told them that kissing each other wasn't allowed on their airlines because they're a "family" company. Family, as you may know, is often a word used to ostracize anyone who isn't heterosexual. The Real L Word: Lesbian Voyeurism Or Good TV?

The couple was understandably very upset at this. When they defended themsevles, they were told to leave the plane.

The 40-year-old Leisha took to Twitter to further explain her story:

"I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir. Flt. attendant said that it was a 'family' airline and kissing was not ok. This is an outrage. I demand a public apology by @SouthwestAir and a refund. Hate is not a family value. I will never fly this airline.

We were escorted off the plane for getting upset about the issue. @SouthwestAir endorses homophobic employees. No one made her accountable."

Grey also tweeted about the incident:

"So we've joined the ranks alongside @BJAofficial and @ThatKevinSmith for being kicked off an @SouthwestAir flight, this time for being gay. @SouthwestAir We didn't know intolerance and discrimination for slouchy pants, being overweight or being gay was part of your family values."
