I have not flown in months, so I have not had the "pleasure" of dealing with the TSAholes in a long time. I had two flights last week and I had my first opportunity to opt out of the Nude-o-scope in PHL. I was in the families and medical liquids line (BIG MISTAKE....soooooooo slooooowwww...) because I had two protein drinks that I had to take through with me. (I am unable to eat solid foods before noon, so I had to bring them along with me.) EVERYONE in my family line went through the NOS. I was disgusted that no one even questioned what the (expletive deleted) it was. I got to the front and when the TSO motioned me toward it, I said, "I opt out." I was then shuttled to the penalty box to the left of the NOS. It isn't really a box, but it is just an area about 18 inches wide that is roped off by those ribbon things. The TSO female on guard at the end of the penalty area asked me why I opted out and I said, "Because I can." She protested that it isn't an x-ray and when I asked her to explain what it was, I got nothing from her. She also said something to the effect of, "Well, if you opted out, why are you leaning against it?" I was not leaning on it. In fact, I was on tippy toes trying to keep an eye on my bags, which was exceedingly difficult since the NOS blocked everything. My stuff came through and I was taken to the mat for my exam/probe. What I am about to say is upsetting to me, but here goes: It was not as bad as I had thought it could have been. That is not to say that I approve of these moronic gropings or of the TSA in general, but the woman taking care of me was not a total bitch...unusual in PHL. I had donned my new one-piece jumpsuit so that there would be no fingers down my waistband. It worked like a dream, of course. I did not get the "resistance" talk, which disappointed me. I wanted to ask about that and ask if she'd be feeling my naughty bits. Anyhoo... My protein drinks were put into a magic machine and were cleared quickly. I was on my way. Dammit, I was looking for a fight and I didn't get one.
