  1. I think this situation is very difficult, because three things are important, no one wants to be seen physically that is modest, no one wants other people to touch their body all over that is righteous, and also the security of flying is important also. I certainly would like some other choice than the two given for security. Is there some other answer? Honestly this makes me not want to fly, I don’t want someone to see my body, and I don’t want someone to touch me all over, yet I do understand the need for security.

    I have considered that I could just treat the two options as a medical activity where invasion of privacy is necessary for safety, but it seems different at the same time.

  2. I vote for body scan. Better than hands all over me. Not sure if that has anything to do with being righteous or not…just embarrassing.

  3. I think this is a direct oppostion to our The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that:

    “ The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and Warrants shall not be issued, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized”.

    If your neighbor came into your yard and you felt her up and her 22 month old babies gentitals you would be thrown in jail and CPS called on you. That is what is happening to innocent people in the pat down searches at the airports. This is not making people feel any safer. I have heard story after story of baby girls being touched in the privates. Pretty young girls and women being picked for body pat downs. Innocent eight year old boy’s having their privates touched. I think this is an outrage. I think the people have had it and enough if is enough!! Why don’t the people stand up and boycott the airlines?
    I think this is a moral outrage, and it does not make me feel safer.
