That card like many others get overplayed and becomes worthless.
It's just like the blacks claiming racist it's very over used but still way too effective
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I don't define chillul Hashem as the Daily Mail looking down on a practice.  They look down on most of our halachos and minhagim--just it doesn't usually make the news.
+1
not saying I agree with the practice or that it is halachicly justified but following halacha is not a chillul hashem no matter how the masses view it. A chillul hashem is when you profane G-d's name by NOT following halacha... The q is, is this in line with halacha? They think yes so no matter what we say they will continue.
At least that is my understanding

As to a solution a friend was telling me about an app where you post your upcoming flights and find ppl on same flight as you and choose your seat accordingly - purpose being of course to find that cute girl, but I guess it could be used to accomplish the opposite

Believe it or not, my Rov told me that when someone's wife is Niddah it's preferable next to an unrelated woman on a long-haul flight...

Well I guess maybe they don't. I just think they need to R-E-L-A-X.

How about this leading to a headline in the most read news aggregation site in the country for what any sane person would consider a selfish interpretation of law.

Still not the definition of chillul Hashem.  Chillul Hashem is when you don't follow halacha.  You're free to disagree here on the halacha, but their position has a very reasonable basis.

If it's an issue of halacha where does common sense come in?
