This is not acceptable, THIS IS NOT NORMAL. Sociopaths have no need of privacy, like little children playing with their privates in front the guests. (For new visitors, this trait (primitive, undeveloped sexuality with privacy unnecessary) is simply an aspect of the devastating arrested development of sociopaths, the primary sociopathic throughline.)
I hate to think what’s ahead when some enterprising bomber shoves explosives up his *ss.
China and Israel do not do this, deeming it ineffective and against norms. A serious terrorist would use the cargo hold I suppose, but let’s not mention that. Or walk across the open borders.
“In fact, these machines don’t detect the kind of powdered explosives used in January’s attempted underwear bomber attack!” http://wewontfly.com/opt-out-day/
So if it’s not effective, what is the point? Constitutionally recognized natural rights? Dignity for the ants in the antfarm? I don’t think so.
The TSA does offer an alternative, a patdown palm face up with genital contact:
Flight Attendant Tells Her TSA Sexual Assault Story;
Traveler to TSA Agent: “If you touch my junk, I’ll have you arrested.”;
Welcome to America — TSA Screener Accosts 3 Year Old Child at Security Checkpoint;
New “(Enhanced Pat Downs) require screeners to touch passenger’s genitals”.
There seems to be a common reaction across the political divide:
Apparently the TSA also has a problem with sociopathic bullying in the workplace. Small penis jokes lead to TSA worker beatdown, Rolando Negrin, TSA Worker Arrested, Assaulted Colleague Over Genital Joke. I can almost hear that sociopathic “cackling jackass laugh.” Actually I have heard that laugh from non-sociopaths, usually the sons of sociopaths.
There is no doubt that actual sociopaths would be attracted to working for the TSA. The TSA should brain scan all employees, from the most senior to the most junior, for sociopathic brain structures.
