Knickers in a Knot – Pat Down or Naked X-ray

Posted by madjillmom on November 16, 2010

When I boarded my flight out last week from a small nearby airport, I was patted down by a woman.  It wasn’t a problem.  My only wonder was why I was chosen for pat down since I didn’t set off the metal detector.  I would also easily do the x-ray thing that gives someone a pretty good look at everything.  I am willing to do both these things as necessary to have the privilege of flying somewhere.  If you don’t want either experience, then travel a different way.  The groin check is now necessary due to the underwear bomber from last Christmas. I will be very pissed off if there is an exception made for Muslim women. Flying is a privilege, not a right. If they need to see what is in my jeans, then they need to see what is going on under the burqa.
