What not to wear? Clothing a security line issue



Yahoo News

Just read this article and thought I would share this here since the heightened TSA restrictions have become a hot button topic lately everywhere.

It essentially is a practical guide on how to 'not' be requested for an enhanced patdown by the TSA agents.
No matter what your stance on the TSA guidelines, and I suspect that most people in all walks of life are against it, it is worth a quick read.

Brief summary, the harder it would be for you to hide something with your clothing, the better it is for airport security.

in all sincierity

the time and cost for this nionsence takes wont pay back it self in anyway ,

the longer it takes to get onboard less flights are made.

edit



Opponents argue the more intensive screening violates civil liberties including freedom of religion, the right to privacy and the constitutional protection against unreasonable searches. Federal officials insist the procedures are necessary to ward off terror attacks like the attempted bombing of a Chicago-bound plane last Christmas by a Nigerian man who stashed explosives in his underwear.



this is the problem in a nut shell ,

law sais one thing and is clear about it

the federal officials dont recognize law but want private policies that you bend over for ,

However, the tickets are already bought and paid for.
Even if the plane flies empty, there is no money lost for the airlines, in fact the less weight would probably save money or fuel.

The only way to make an impact financially is to not fly altogether. I already choose not to fly unless absolutely neccessary. I prefer to drive and to see the country.

New Air Travel passenger uniform mandate:

a**less chaps and nothing else.




This was pretty obvious, and didn't need a whole article to explain that baggy clothing was liable to get you targeted; doesn't make it right. We need to stop this soon; we need to end the TSA intrusion into our privacy before there are checkpoints every square mile of land.

I agree, no need for an article to tell us this.
I think it is a good sign that this is getting some coverage on a broader scale now.
Although the scope of the article makes it seem like this is something that we just need to get used to, so dress appropriately.

I agree that the media in many instances has an agenda, either to push a certain paradigm, or to just maintain the status quo.

This article seemed to be nothing more than simply a pro-TSA policy piece. They didnt come right out and say it, but recommending to readers to avoid baggy and concealing clothing is more or less the same thing.

If I should decide to fly,I will dress anyway I please.
I will still wear my ankle-length skirt and a loose top.
If they give me any grief,I will simply pull up my skirt
and top for them!After I have blinded them and rendered
them helpless.I will board the plane and take my seat.

I agree with you there. One should not have to make these types of arrangements to be able to fly.
I just have a sneaking suspicion that this will become more commonplace and before long it will become accepted.

The "What Not To Wear," goes beyond: "Clothes loaded with metal studs are suddenly a no-no, as are bras with underwires. Slacks instead of skirts are preferred. Any baggy clothing can require extra inspection." There is a dirty little secret that no-one is discussing in MSM. Have you read about this?


Menstruating woman subjected to TSA grope because panty-liner obscured her vulva on pornoscanner
Cory Doctorow at 11:49 PM Wednesday, Nov 24, 2010

A self-described "rule follower" went through an airport pornoscanner wearing a panty-liner (she was menstruating). Because the hygienic item obscured the screener's view of her [s]vagina[/s] vulva, she was made to endure a humiliating fondling, "so invasive that I was left crying and dealing with memories that I thought had been dealt with years ago of prior sexual assaults."


"These new scans are so horrible that if you are wearing something unusual (like a piece of cloth on your panties) then you will be subjected to a search where a woman repeatedly has to check your "groin" while another woman watches on (two in my case - they were training in a new girl - awesome). So please, please, tell the ladies not to wear their liners at the airport (I didn't even have an insert in). I'm a strong, confident woman; I'm an Army vet (which is why those camo liners crack me up), I work full-time and go to graduate school full-time, I have a wonderful husband, and I don't take any nonsense from anyone. I don't dramatize, and I don't exaggerate. I'm trying to give you a sense of who I am so you won't think that this is a plea for attention, or a jumping on the bandwagon about the recent TSA proposed boycott. I just don't want another woman to have to go through the "patting down" because she didn't know that her glad-rag would be a matter of national security."


There are plenty of TSA apologists who say that objections to the TSA's invasive "pat-downs" are just whining from people don't want to go through the backscatter radiation machines -- we bring it on ourselves. But as we've seen, anything out of the ordinary -- wearing a fabric pad during menstruation, artificial limbs, medical prostheses, etc -- can send you off for a date with Doctor Jellyfinger, Junior G-Man extraordinaire.

By declaring war on the unexpected, the TSA has set in motion a policy that makes the lives of cancer sufferers, disabled people, people who've had major surgery, and many others who're already having a hard time even harder.

I know a lot of Aussie travellers who won't even go to America for business meetings anymore because of the airport stupidity.
And I'm sure Australians are not the only ones.

As for going without panty-liners - I hope their cleaners are trained in cleaning bloody puddles when the gushers are being screened.

And what's this about not being able to see the vulva?
Those liars had told us the scanner doesn't see under the underclothing anyway!
Makes me wonder what sort of image they really see . . .
