You know that they don't actually see anything in those scanners despite what the melodramatics on ats go on about?
If I was sexually harassed, I would stand up for myself, as anyone should. It is not acceptable, and I will not allow someone to make me feel
uncomfortable in that way.
As for the body scanners:
Full-body scanners at airport security checkpoints will no longer display explicit "person-specific images" under new technology being
phased in nationwide, according to a statement Wednesday by the Transportation Security Administration. Instead, a software upgrade for the machines
will show a generic body outline.
Critics have pointed to explicit scanned images as a virtual "strip search" and a violation of passengers' privacy ever since the full-body
scanners were phased in last year. But TSA says that situation will change with this upgrade.

So you are making stereotypes about people doing their jobs and automatically registering them as criminals in your mind?
If you label people so easilly, how do you ever leave the house?
I am not "labeling" anyone - TSA agents have a bad rep at my local airport. Here are a some reviews from airport guests:
Overall response of the taff can be a hit or miss. With early morning flights TSA agents are either snide/rude or non responsive when greeted.
The terminals are ALWAYS under construction, the constant gate changes, the surly TSA, and about a hundred more things about this place that just

Small, cramped, kinda run down, and exceptionally snide TSA agents, easily the worst part about a trip to Dallas (too bad it's your first and last
You get the point. You can also easily Google for news stories about TSA complaints in Dallas.
It's not just about looks, though many of them do not look professional at my local airport. It's about their attitudes and their lack of customer
service to people who are paying a lot of money to fly.
And I specified "local airport" as to not wrongly represent other areas... Maybe other airports have spectacular TSA agents, but DFW does not. I did
not mean to come off as judgmental, I probably should have expressed myself a bit differently, but I just did now, so there you go.
and I bet you look like Angelina Jolie.
No I do not, but this has nothing to do with how I look.
What a sad, elitist attitude.
I have an elitist attitude because I do not think that an agency such as the TSA should be allowed to violate my rights and look at me almost naked so
I can get on an airplane? I think you should apply that quote to yourself, as your entire post has been nothing but condescending.
Funny, I have never felt that way. But then I don't automatically label people doing their jobs as sexual predators with a rap sheet that are
checking me out.
See quotes and examples above.
I am not that full of myself....
No, not full of yourself... Just have a negative attitude and are OK with unnecessary laws and regulations that violate your
