Walking contradiction.

An airport security guard at Los Angeles airport suspected that the head of Qantas airlines was a terrorist and frisked her. Qantas Chairman Margaret Jackson said the guard searched her briefcase and found detailed plans of new aircraft, including diagrams of seat layouts. "The guy said, 'Why have you got all of this?' "Jackson told the Herald Sun of Australia. "And I said, 'I'm the chairman of an airline. I'm the chairman of Qantas.'" The guard reportedly responded: "But you're a woman."
