Pornography is in the eye of the beholder. If this increases safety, then it needs to be implemented. If someone finds the x-ray like depiction of bodily appendages titallating, perhaps they need to see a psychiatrist, not a civil liberties lawyer. I'd much rather provide the anonymous depiction, then undergo the face to face patdown; but I'd rather undergo either than to become a grim statistic of terrorism.
If only it were a perfect world, but it's not.
