I survived childhood sexual abuse. The very nature of it is eerily similar to what goes on at airports today, so it is doubly traumatizing to me. As for any survivor of sexual abuse of any kind, one of the most egregious actions at the current security playhouse production by TSA is the forced loss of dignity by having control over one's own body forcibly removed from yourself. Whether one agrees to undergo whole body imaging (AIT) scanning, even with ATR, or agrees to undergo the opt-out "pat down", the innocent passenger must cede control of the body to a stranger or not fly that day and possibly face fines. I share this background because it's important to recognize what TSA is doing at checkpoints today is sexual abuse. Period. I know because I've both been sexually abused and because I've transited TSA airport checkpoints over the last year. There is an interesting piece at msnbc.com regarding the current Sandusky scandal at Penn State. I share it here because it explains why people will willingly go along with, and even demand, that TSA do these things, not recognizing them for what they are. Let's call it what it is. What TSA does at checkpoints today is sexual abuse. Now consider how it affects the psyche of the public at large. And before the sanctimonious rubes inhabiting the halls of DHS/TSA who become appalled because, after all, they aren't in the locker room shower after hours penetrating young boys, you must remember that sexual abuse takes many, many forms. Look into your own soul and see these things for what they are.
