Folks -- I posted a similar thread "over there" and would like to pose the same question to my cyberfriends on TUG. I believe the TSA is engaging in a new intimidation tactic towards those of us who opt out and question use of the word "resistance" by asking if the clerk is going to come in contact with a specific body part. I posted about my Dulles experience a while back and I've read enough other similar encounters to believe a TSA-wide tactic is to order their clerks to be sensitive and state that they are personally offended by the use of a genital term and that use of this term in conversation equals "interfering with the screening process." At Dulles about a month ago, everyone from the female most dragon to the suit who told me they were offended acted as if they were reading from a script. None of them sounded the least bit offended; it was a deliberate and trained response. The threat of being arrested for interfering with the screening process was also scripted. So, I throw this out there to find out if anyone else has had the same experience over the last 8 weeks or so? I'd like to enlist other TUGers to find out if this new "sensitivity" to use of genitalia terminology is a new intimidation tactic. I encourage others who opt out to ask a question about a genital being touched, using the proper name, and see what reaction you get. I'm not looking for anyone to get into any situation in which they feel threatened. I'd just like as many others as possible to go as far down this road as they dare just to figuratively "pull the trigger" and see if the clerk takes the bait and reacts with the same script. If there are enough of us who report the same experience -- tough because of the reduced flying most of us are doing these days, I will try to get some media attention.
