    Travelling to my brother's for TG, as is my yearly tradition. I am going to go thru the pat down.

    1) to see what it's like

    2) I have had enough radiation for a life time in my cancer therapy

    3) free grope

    If the line is long, I am just gonna sigh audibly...."only gay guys go thru the pat down." .... come to think of it, that may be the only guys in line, so it might not help. ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    I just got back from a trip to Chicago and didn't see anyone getting patted down at either airport (Ft Lauderdale or OHare). I don't see what all the fuss is about. I think it's being blown out of proportion by the news - big surprise.

    I just flew to and from DC, and all I had were the metal detectors. People complain about the scanner because they don't want some random person who they will never see again to see an outline of their junk. What's the big deal? They'll see hundreds of people every single day. It's not like they're going to remember an individual person.

    Just because it wouldn't matter to them doesn't mean it doesn't matter to that one individual. It matters to them and that should be enough.

    Now, maybe anti-gay gay republican politicans won't need to have sex in airport bathrooms... the pat-down may satisfy their urge just a enough to hold them off.

    I don't care about the TSA screeners looking at an outline of my equipment. In fact, I'd be flattered at hearing the gasps of awe. icon_lol.gif

    But I think about my dearly departed grandma, who was as modest and shy as anyone I've known. She would decline to fly rather than let someone take an electronic peek under her clothes. And considering that, I think this goes too far.

    Who's going to do the pat down, that is the question.

    So what do you figure the guy doing the pat down would do if you already had a raging hardon...try it and let us know the outcome. I don't fly so I won't get the chance

    You're just too irresistible to expect them to refrain!

    5ebastian saidTSA pat-down leaves traveler covered in urine

    A retired special education teacher on his way to a wedding in Orlando, Fla., said he was left humiliated, crying and covered with his own urine after an enhanced pat-down by TSA officers recently at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

    “I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn’t even speak,” said Thomas D. “Tom” Sawyer, 61, of Lansing, Mich.

    Sawyer is a bladder cancer survivor who now wears a urostomy bag, which collects his urine from a stoma, or opening in his stomach. “I have to wear special clothes and in order to mount the bag I have to seal a wafer to my stomach and then attach the bag. If the seal is broken, urine can leak all over my body and clothes.”

    On Nov. 7, Sawyer said he went through the security scanner at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. “Evidently the scanner picked up on my urostomy bag, because I was chosen for a pat-down procedure.”

    Due to his medical condition, Sawyer asked to be screened in private. “One officer looked at another, rolled his eyes and said that they really didn’t have any place to take me,” said Sawyer. “After I said again that I’d like privacy, they took me to an office.”

    Sawyer wears pants two sizes too large in order to accommodate the medical equipment he wears. He’d taken off his belt to go through the scanner and once in the office with security personnel, his pants fell down around his ankles. “I had to ask twice if it was OK to pull up my shorts,” said Sawyer, “And every time I tried to tell them about my medical condition, they said they didn’t need to know about that.”


    Thats disgusting.

    When traveling, we should all demand a photo copy when going through the scanner to post in 'adult photos' on our rj profiles.

    Took my mentally disabled sister to the airport today so she could fly to Tampa to be with our dad for the holiday....I escort her onto the plane and she is one of the first on the plane , and then I leave the plane and the rest of the passengers start to file on...so I didn't fly but still go through all of the security and everything...The concourse we used did not have the scanners so it was a pat down and metal detectors..... what an offensive, fucked up process!
    This would be a dream job for some really depraved gay guy that is still a virgin.....I mean really!.....Only 2 groups of people are allowed to touch me that way....one is my DOCTOR, the other is MY LOVER... and the rude, inconsiderate, unprofessional, unkempt, P.O.S. that was there, will NEVER be either!....There are people in prisons for what these TSA "screeners" are doing and they are called "SEXUAL PREDATORS"....I asked my screener afterward. if this was how the TSA was rehabbing Sexual Predators as pat-down screeners?...I got a really dirty look from him and the other screeners. I walked away and said fuck you.......I hope I never see these TSA agents in my neighborhood needing something on in my offices wanting something....It will be a very cold reception.....
    If any of our RJ guys are TSA agents that do this screening....I think I'd keep it to myself....don't expect alot of sympathy or understanding.......the TSA and the government are dead fucking wrong and over the line here...anyone passing the buck and doing someone else s dirty work is no defense.....TSA's John Pistole, should be FIRED!....The rude, inconsiderate and insensitive TSA agents that caused the gentleman with a urine bag to dump on himself, and the many other horror stories I have heard, seen or read...every one of these TSA agents should be FIRED and then CHARGED WITH MULTIPLE ASSAULT VIOLATIONS .......this is bullshit.....I refuse to fly any longer, because TSA violates our constitutional rights by assuming and treating us all like we are all guilty until proven innocent by them...and the TSA is a mistake....regulating and strip searching and patting down the general public is ridiculous...because the VAST MAJORITY...like 99.99999% of the public are the law abiding citizens....and not the terrorist and criminal. Those are the people that are not operating on the same set of rules....
    I am further incensed that all of those telling us just how important, or safe, these new processes are and how they will improve security.......don't ever go through this same security check.....Not TSA's John Pistole, not Sec. of State Clinton, not President Obama, NONE of them......WRONG!!!!! WRONG!!!!! WRONG!!!!! ......can ya tell...this PISSES ME OFF!...If you haven't been through this process yet....let us know when you do.......as far as I care...the terrorist have won and are no longer relevant in this argument....our own government, through the TSA, has changed the US Constitution and has now institutionalized sexual assault, strip searches and guilty until proven innocent.... enjoy your flight, served with "a grope" and a dose of radiation and a bad attitude......hope the airlines collapse....

    A fellow I know via blogs and Facebook went to OAK last night to put his daughter on a flight to New York. He has lost a lot of weight after gastric bypass surgery and -- after having been ordered to take his belt off -- he had to hold his pants up. When he got to the scanner and was ordered to assume the position his daughter calls "the demented moose", his pants fell down.

    As he was trying to reassemble his belongings and his dignity, a (female) agent accused him of "trying to make a statement" and did not seem satisfied with him already being embarrassed; she wanted to pick an argument with him. He would not give her the satisfaction, but I hope he got her name and reported her. This is a soft-spoken, devout and educated man who does not draw attention to himself. I'm sure he was mortified enough before this stupid wench had to add insult to injury.

    From the sound of things, all y'all who've been "molested" during the new pat-down procedures should file a class action lawsuit.

    I've looked up the TSA procedures, and check the Code Of Federal Regulations [Title 49, Volume 9, Chapter XII, Part 1500-1699] and cannot find anything that requires them to touch your genitals. What they are doing is still against the law. They just think we're stupid enough to let them get away with it.

    Charge the fucking bastards with molestation. That's exactly what they're doing.
