The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) may finally have gone too far and the folks at Flying Pasties may have found a way to take back our power.
Since October 29, the TSA has been selecting random passengers to go through their new enhanced x-ray machine that reveals all about what is underneath their clothing. And those who refuse? Get the unique pleasure of being fondled by a TSA worker.
Reports are streaming in from people who have been violated and groped, but it seems our choices are limited: It's either deal with it or don't fly.
Luckily, someone thought of a fashionable way to keep our dignity and also mess with those violating TSA eyes. "Just hidin' my junk," says one rubber pasty made to cover male genitalia so the pasty -- not the private -- is visible. It's also designed so the screener can read the message.
Some other messages:
Only my wife sees me naked
How about one that says what many of us think:
Give them a laugh while they are reviewing hundreds of boring naked people:
Objects are larger than they appear
Tell them you don't want them to see you nude:
Chat with them about your legal rights:
The Fourth Amendment: 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 no Warrants shall issue, 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 you are flying soon and especially if you are flying on National Opt Out Day (November 24), leave extra time for security and keep your sense of humor intact with a rush order on these babies.
Are you against the new security measures?
