This time, it's about those idiotic full-body 'see you nekkid' scanners TSA installed in the airports because they are absolute morons who couldn't catch a terrorist when his own father turned him in, and generally should go DIAF.

I used to fly a lot. Guess what - now I do not. I drive/bus/take the train/don't go. I can put up with having to take off my baby's shoes (ooooh, look at the little terrorist? Maybe I hid a bomb in her diaper!) and other idiotic measures (really? 3 ounce rule? What's to prevent someone from buying a bottle of coke in the airport and combining your little 3oz liquids into one big liquid molotov in it?) but this is it. I am out. I've been slowly phasing flying out.

I draw a line at some anonymous sicko seeing me naked (the only people who are allowed to see me naked are my husband and my doctor. I severely doubt the minimum-wage TSA shmuck is either) and I do not need more radiation in my system, especially with my poor genetics (ooooooh, it is so so so safe, says the government! Just like all the other things we said were safe and turned out not to be). And I have no desire to be groped by a stranger (thank you very much, it happened to me once before, then it was by a pervert and not the most pleasant college experience of my life. Maybe the guy was practicing to be a TSA screener?)

BUT while I may have arguably put up with this on my own behalf, like fuck am I putting up with anyone seeing my daughter naked or groping her or giving her radiation. THE FUCK? What is this, TSA is now run by NAMBLA? Because it's not as if these procedures make anyone safer.

We like to take our vacations overseas, so I suppose there will be one flight a year I will have to get on. We don't take Baby Mousie with us as she's too small so there is no issue with her. And as for me, I suppose I'll have to submit to being molested (no way am I getting radiation and at least there are no pics from the groping). But I am seriously trying to plan the flights so we'd drive to an airport with no machines of this sort and fly from there, even if it's longer/much more inconvenient as all our local airports have installed harass-o-matics.

Don't get me started on our lovely pathetic excuse for a President whose comment was of the effect "TSA is awesome and I am sure there is no danger/humiliation/abuse and the new procedures are super great even though I never experienced them myself." Just shut up, Obama. Honestly. Before you sound even more idiotic than you already do.
