Such a non issue. Do you want to fly on the airplane. Choice #1 Go through the scanner. Choice #2 Get a pat down search for weapons. Choice #3 Take a bus.
Get over it

Does he think they are doing this to see his junk? It is simply to keep us safe and to make sure the freak behind him isn't smuggling a plastic bomb in through his anus. That is what it is coming to! Pat me down because I'm more concerned that I live to reach my destination. Anyone who doesn't like it, there are plenty of seats on greyhound.

There is absolutely no reason for these screenings. Uhhh haven't had a " terrorist attack" since 01. Airlines are ridiculous already opening up suitcases going through personal stuff. Opening up laptops. Pat me down I'll walk thru a metal detector. Will not walk thru an X-ray machine to get on a airplane

. Thank you airlines for opening laptops and patting down passengers. Thanks to these precautions, we haven't had a terrorist attack since '01!(although there have been more attempts if u pay attention to the news)

Did the terrorists of 9/11 use laptops to take down those planes? By the way, the airlines are not the TSA. They hate the TSA as much as the passengers.

That's because the TSA is a joke. Low life non caring under paid Government workers. Ever have to deal with them to get security clearance? Joke and not a funny one when it comes to safety.
