Subject: Would you let strangers take fully nude pictures of you?
Body: That'd almost be like rape, right? If it was something you didn't really want to do...
So what if it was mandatory if you wanted to fly anywhere through major airports?
And what if the company raping yo.. taking the pictures of you naked named their cameras "rapiscans?"
Sounds pretty ridiculous, but it's exactly what's happening. Watch this video to see a few demonstrations of what I'm talking about...
The things can see through all of your clothes, layer by layer, down to the pores in your skin, and they're trying to make them mandatory in all airports.
Pretty awesome right?

This may be off topic, but don't care... comparing body scans to Rape is loathsome... it doesn't come close to the level of Rape and the ramifications of such a thing. Why doesn't it surprise me that a male wouldn't know this? or so cavalierly make such a comparison?

They blur the images so that the resolution is only good enough to detect foreign objects, and the operator is never co-located with the scanner, so they don't know who they are scanning. I would be more concerned about another source of public exposure to radiation. We get enough from cell phones, microwave ovens, and the doctor's office. Now we have to zap everyone who flies? I bet it's just a HAARP conspiracy to experimentally charge humans with RF radiation to study the human auroral effect.
So if you couldn't leave your city without having full-body naked images taken, you wouldn't feel the least bit violated?
You really think that because I'm a guy I can't "understand" how bad rape is?
Obviously having naked pictures taken of you isn't the same as being held down and sodomized, and I'm sorry you can't understand my way of making analogies. Why doesn't it surprise me that a female would be overreacting to such an obvious concept? By the way, that's a bit of sarcasm.
Why don't you give us an honest expression of how you have come to feel the way you do about this issue instead of dropping a cavalier comment full of anger and resentment?
Are planned airport scanners just a scam?
New technology that Gordon Brown relies on for his response to the Christmas Day bomb attack has been tested – and found wanting
By Jane Merrick
Sunday, 3 January 2010
The explosive device smuggled in the clothing of the Detroit bomb suspect would not have been detected by body-scanners set to be introduced in British airports, an expert on the technology warned last night.
The claim severely undermines Gordon Brown's focus on hi-tech scanners for airline passengers as part of his review into airport security after the attempted attack on Flight 253 on Christmas Day.
The Independent on Sunday has also heard authoritative claims that officials at the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Home Office have already tested the scanners and were not persuaded that they would work comprehensively against terrorist threats to aviation.
Has anyone been through one of these Rapiscans? Please Report!
This recent filed attack has brought up the talk of those full body scanners, which reminded me of this... a month or so back i went through the Tulsa airport. They had these full body scanners. In the media they say the places that they were testing them at made them purely optional but that's 100% LIE. there was nothing explaining the equipment or saying it was optional, that it could see your body or anything or the sort. They also then patted everyone down like a cop would even AFTER they full body scanned everyone! Not just me, everyone. Also while waiting for my flight a handful of f16's or some military type fighter planes where buzzing around the airspace... WHAT on earth is so high risk about Tulsa? It's not even a big airport.

...I'm sure most of the people operating these scanners aren't really getting that much enjoyment out of it. If said operator got to sit there and scan super models all day, it might be enjoyable to have such a job, but being all kinds of people fly on planes and therefore get scanned... 90 year old woman, 500 pound men, I don't think the scanner operator is getting off from doing this.

Tie this in with how the "christmas plane bomber" plot was obviously a set up/ploy by our governments, and the way they're constantly rubbing their evil doings in our faces, and we've got ourselves a pretty cut-and-dry case of new world order BS.
Yeah, they sure found an excuse to have these things implemented everywhere rather quickly. Fishy Fishy. Of course I've seen this # for years and now have the ability to see right through all of the bull#.

Are you serious? Did you watch the video I linked to? Have you looked at anything more than the name of these things before giving up and assuming they're nothing special?
Are you seriously comparing a thermal image to things as clear/clearer than this...
Show me one thermal image from the past twenty years that rivals the detail on the guy's cockandballs in the video I linked in the original post....
Now think about how your mom, grandma, wife, daughter, sister, brother, husband, son, or grandpa would feel about having complete strangers take that kind of picture of them and the ones they love.
You're disgusting if you can defend this kind of thing.
Remember when people said it was ridiculous to think that our emails could/would be sold to governments/corporations? Celebrities and children are about to make a lot of sick people a lot of money...
