I'm reading on the Ministry of Homeland Security blog about their supposed "further steps to enhance passenger privacy". Later on in the post, Agitprop Commissar Bob blathers about "privacy concerns". Now, if you Google "TSA modesty" you get a whole bunch of articles like "With Modesty in mind, TSA Rolls Out New Body Scanners" (this at NPR). This is a lot of Hotel Sierra. The constitution doesn't protect "modesty". The Fourth Amendment doesn't use the words "privacy concern." Once we let the Ministry of Homeland Security define the problem as "modesty" or "privacy concern", it makes it sound like its YOU and your prissy ways that are the problem, not the slobbering Leviathan that has its hands in your trousers or up your skirt. The Ministry is clever about this, it perhaps has reached a new level in linguistics, by defining both "vulva" and "testicles" with a single word, "resistance". I think the whole rotten edifice, from Herr Minister Pistole right on down to the lesser zombies at the checkpoint could be brought crashing down if every male TSO had to say the words: to strangers two or three times an hour.
