It's an excellent point

The 81-year-old Holocaust survivor who was insulted by a Haredi gender bigot on board El Al's flights is suing the airline, and makes a good point about his behavior, and theirs:
The 81-year-old retired lawyer said El Al airline would never have agreed to a non-Jewish person saying they did not want to sit next a Jew, and this was "no different".

"I don't believe El Al would move a person in those circumstances," Ms Rabinowitz told The Guardian.
I get the feeling that, if he'd asked not be seated next to a homosexual man, they wouldn't have complied with that. So why is "homophobia" wrong, but gender bigotry perfectly okay?
Despite being allocated seats separated by a screen, the ultra-Orthodox man in question asked a male flight attendant to move the pensioner.

After being offered a "better seat" by the El Al flight attendant - which Ms Rabinowitz said clearly was not - she guessed her neighbour had requested the change and confronted him directly.

In particular she said that the Torah does not require opposite sexes to sit separately.

"He started to tell me it was forbidden by The Torah. I interrupted him to say the Torah says nothing about a man sitting next to a woman," said Ms Rabinowitz.

"He conceded I was right, but said there was a general principle that a person should not put himself in a dangerous situation."
Well look at that, he practically admitted he was resorting to cheapjack defenses for his own narrow visions. And topped it off by implying she's a "danger". I guess he must despise biblical Deborah too for her prominent role as a judge in ancient times. He should be subpoenaed in the lawsuit, as he has a lot of explaining to do for the court.
