Hey TSA, Frisk This!November 16, 2010 No Comments
The new American airline regulations are meeting stiff resistance from the public. They don’t understand why they have to walk through a machine which shows them naked, but will not reveal anything hidden in cavities. They are angry that their only other options involves having their genitals groped by a stranger.
The new frisking guidelines have a security official running the palms of their hands up your thighs until they reach the testicles or vulva, which must be touched. The buttocks and breasts are also cupped.
One method of protest suggested has been to opt out of the scanners and force the security officials to do the frisk, which would clog up the system.
But I think Jeffrey Goldberg has a much better idea:
- Kilts. Think about it — if you’re a male, and you want to bollix-up the nonsensical airport security-industrial complex, one way to do so would be to wear a kilt. If nothing else, this will cause TSA employees to throw up their hands in disgust.
Of course, the only way to go would be traditional. This method is not for the faint of heart, but kilt-wearers have has a long tradition of throwing on their tartan as they throw up their middle finger to authority.
