First TSA Patdown

March 3, 2011

My flight was delayed today, so rather than go into the microwave oven TSA scanner at San Francisco airport, I “opted out” for a pat down. Its about what I expected except that he physically touched EVERY single part of my body. They run a hand down your back, then do it again, overlapping the last run to make sure that they cover every square inch.

For me, its intrusive but I dont really care. For a woman its much worse. They really do grope you. So your options are 1) get cancer or 2) be violated.

Honestly it makes me want to stop flying.
