I'd Rather Go Naked Than Fly in Fear

Posted on Wed, Jan 6, 2010 at 10:11 AM

Wow, what a ridiculous amount of bullshit surrounding the new airport scanners. I have actually been in one of these contraptions as they were testing one at the airport when I flew to Europe last spring. For those who are worried about "people from the airport standing around seeing you naked" and the "invasive" nature of a full body scanner - are you fucking serious?

First of all there are 2 employees whose job it is to look at the scan, second of all, standing in a 3/4 enclosed tube for 10 seconds is a lot less invasive then having some women patting my crotch, and third of all, it takes 10 fucking seconds! I really can't see how the introduction of these scanners will do anything but promote safer and more efficient screening at airports.

And for those of you with "modesty" issues - do you really think people don't have an idea of what the outline of your body is based on your clothes? I know some things are meant to be "slimming" but you're not fooling anyone, so please get over your own vanity for the sake of your safety!
