If they said it would reduce a terrorist attack down to 0% on an airplane, I'd be all for it. (the scans, not the sexual abuse) But they don't even prevent a damn thing.
I DONT GIVE A DAMN WHO YOU ARE, NO HUMAN HAS A RIGHT TO TOUCH ANOTHER HUMAN FOR ANY OTHER REASON THAN SELF DEFENSE. ESPECIALLY SEX ORGANS.
And they don't even let people walk away, if you refuse the scan they make a huge production out of it, escort you out like your the unibomber(8 hours later), and threaten you with arrest. Yeah, that seems like some great choices there.
This is my point exactly. They don't prevent anything at all. They've stopped screening 12 year olds now. You know what I do if I'm a terrorist? I hand my bomb making materials to a 12 yr old kid, then I let them screen me to their hearts content. Once we're past security, I get the bomb stuff back from the kid. That's not a security hole. Or I swallow the bomb making stuff ahead of time, get flights with a long layover and pass the stuff in the airport bathroom. No problem there.
