Well certainly the object in question didn't unzip the bag and tape itself to the outside.

The tape came from somewhere it didn't just magically appear around the bag.

The airline can protest all it want I suspect they will find it difficult to overcome those simple realities.

Now as for the couple claiming they are not travelling as much because they are emotionally scarred well there's a simple fix for that...leave the object(s) in question at home then one needn't worry about any potential embarrassment.

Once, a bunch of us were traveling and one couple's bag starting vibrating and humming. We all were in line at the baggage check, and of course, we all started laughing, but at the same time were embarrassed, thinking the worst! The couple were hurriedly unzipping the bag and digging and then shouted, "Found it". It was their battery operated toothbrush! LOL

Oh yes please try to convince me that straight couple don't by sex toy.

And I suspect that if a straight couple's bag was rummaged through and their sex toy taped to the outside of their bag they would be every bit as upset as this couple is.

In the same way you or your wife would be embarrassed if your toys, leathers, and torture devices were taken out and shown to everybody. Are you playing dumb, or are you just a moron.

Why did NOM fight, and fight, and fight, and fight to hide all their antigay donors?

Weren't their antigay donors proud? Why did NOM *literally sue states*, brought lawsuits against *American states and their state governments*, to hide antigay donors, stopping at nothing to help them *HIDE* their identities?

Hmmmm?

Hmmmm?

On an anecdotal basis (derived from incidents I know of personally, not this article), I believe the couple and I don't believe the airline for a nanosecond. It seems there are constant problems at airlines with baggage handlers "behind the scenes" who tamper with, vandalize, and snoop through luggage. I applaud this lawsuit.

Curve magazine's Sept. 2012 issue has an article on "How Gay Friendly Is Your Airline" Continental is not listed among the gay friendly airlines. This does not make Continental look to good, shows that your personal items are up for grabs by employee's to do as they please with your property.

It's kind of like packing only what you would feel comfortable with your mother looking through! I agree with you that I never trust anything in my bag not being rummaged through once it is out of my site. I often feel that way about bags in my hotel room.

Probably because of either low pay and disgruntlement or insufficient screening of hirees. Look at the large percentage of lost luggage. There is no reason that any luggage should be lost if tagged properly.

Oh look, its wiener wilt again. For the record the adult sex toy industry is supported in much larger percentage by heterosexual singles and couples. I believe the total dollar amount from 2008 was somewhere around 2.5 billion dollars per year. Which indicates heterosexuals spend a lot of money on sex toys. Plus adult sex toys are only refereed to as being perverted by twisted right wing fundies who have a fear of sex.

Good point(s). A conservative would ignore this type of reasoning, thus perpetuating the problem; I think it's valuable to look at the *FACT* that dissatisfaction with one's life causes one to *bleed negativity* and often to inflict it on other sources. Absolutely agreed.

Perhaps the only safe way to travel with a "sex toy" is to "pack" it in your pants... Think of it as a way to impress all the other passengers too! ;-D

If it vibrates it might have a metal motor and you will have to remove it when you go through the scanner!

Given the innate dishonesty of homosexuals and the recent rash of faked hate crimes, I would not be surprised if this incident had been contrived by the two "victims' in cahoots with a gay baggage handler.
Lawsuits are the new gay retirement plan, and it seems every homosexual desires to earn accolades from his peers as a crusader for the gay cause.

Bingo.

Only the TSA or the queers themselves did this.
It was probably just stupid queers, again.

Anyone who violates the integrity of a quote probably smells like a rat.
