Nude Body Scanner or Groping Patdown?

Nude body scanner for me, please.

And I can't believe that some people are so vain that they actually think a TSA worker, who is being sentenced to see nude-ish outlines of people all day, are suddenly going to get off on their body.  We live in Fat America.  You're no more beautiful nor more ugly that 90% of other people out there.  Certainly not to arouse or disgust Mr. TSA security man.

I don't think this is an issue, people.  I mean, obviously it is an issue, but the only folks with a legitimate gripe, as far as I can see, are the pilots.

I suppose we could NOT have full body scans, and no pat-downs.  And then we'll have another 9/11 and everyone will complain about how lax airport security is.

Or we can suck it up, and walk through the damn machine.  And if you don't want to do that, or have the patdown, take Amtrak.  It's really that simple.
