Groped by a woman, provided she doesn't look like a man.

Airport screeners get more aggressive with pat-downs

Exposed: Naked Body Scanner Images Of Film Star Printed, Circulated By Airport Staff

Inverted Body Scanner Image Shows Naked Body In Full Living Color





The stupid thing I see in this scan is the gun. Wouldn't that have set off the metal detector that you go through before you choose whether to be scanned or groped?

Somehow, I hate to say it... but I will:

My initial reaction is that I would take the grope by a woman. I would want to see her first, to decide whether I might rather take the radiation of a naked body scan, or just not fly. I might have to explain the object she feels in my pants. If she looked like a dyke or a dog, I would have to take one of the other options.

If you say you want to opt out, and you see a man with his hands out, or an unacceptable woman, can you change your mind without getting even more airport security attention (like a backroom interview or strip search)? Could you look over the security guards and say, "I'll take that one!"

Call me sexist or what you will, but I wouldn't want my wife to be groped by a male security guard even if she was OK with it. I would be OK with her being groped by a woman if she was OK with it and I could watch.

Opting-Out of a Full-Body Scan? Get Ready for the TSA's New Molestation Pat-Down
Quote:
how about this for the new TSA motto: "submit to our humiliating security theater or we'll gleefully grope you." It's catchy!

The videos aren't that interesting, even though youtube is not doing very well getting them to play. You might have better luck downloading them to watch (really just listen to them).

It's being reported that he is likely to be fined $10,000 for walking out.

read that yesterday. very interesting...

i would do the same. if somebody is gonna do a search, i'm leaving the airport.

plus as the past weeks have shown, its much easier to just send bombs on fedex and detonate them than it is to go into an airport with bomb material up your ass.

Sandra Elliott of Denver said she is no prude but that a recent pat-down at John Wayne Airport was so humiliating that she is considering no longer traveling to see her grandchildren in Newport Beach.

"These women's hands were thrust firmly in my crotch. They pulled up my sweater and stuck their hands inside of my pants, plus thoroughly groped my breasts," Elliott said of screeners she encountered before her Nov. 1 flight back to Denver. "Please know that I am not a prude. I am not adverse to being touched by others, sometimes intimately, but this was absolutely overboard."

And now we can use a new pick-up line: I want to grope you like a TSA agent!



aaaand this gives me an idea for Halloween next year. I am going as a TSA agent. I will profile and grope anything that comes my way.

I think I'll tell them I have AIDS, haven't be touched in a while, and to enjoy them selves. In reality, me having AIDS would pose no actual risk and for them to insist on other methods would be discrimination. Epic shit may follow.

LOL dude, but seriously this is genius

I for one will just simply refuse to fly, if every one does the same this problem will go away pretty fast. I understand some need to fly for business but this is ridiculous so unless you have to, simply don't

I'm guessing that the cartoon is a joke, but I think it possible the picture of the airport security computer with this "joke" set as the desktop wallpaper may be real.
