    Mark Fraunfelder’s 15-year-old daughter was at LAX yesterday, trying to board a flight with a group of other students on a trip to visit some colleges. Unfortunately, the U.S. government had decided ahead of time to hire tens of thousands of strangers to intimidate and abuse her (and others) as they blocked the girl’s safe passage to her airplane.​
    A male TSA screener, who should have been concentrating on checking passenger IDs and boarding passes, was instead glaring at the girl, mumbling. When she said to him, “Excuse me?” he responded: “You’re only 15, COVER YOURSELF!”​
    For the record, she was wearing leggings and a tank top with a large red-plaid long-sleeved shirt. Most viewers would find her outfit unremarkable, but what she was wearing is beside the point. An adult male, who might easily be mistaken for an authority figure by virtue of the fake badge on his uniform, and who doesn’t even know this young woman, publicly shamed her with a creepy, sexist insult.​
    What this loser said speaks volumes about his attitudes: he sexualizes young girls and then blames them for his failure to conduct himself honorably. There is an implicit threat in what he said – cover yourself . . . or else?​
    Or else you might be victimized, and it would be your fault because of how you’re dressed? She’s just a girl, living her life, and this sexist guy presumes to tell her how she should live it differently to accomodate him.​
    Oh, the irony of screeners professing to be offended by a clothed teenager, after these amoral villains spent years creating and eyeballing nude images of innocent travelers. Here we have a man who takes money to put his hands down peoples’ pants, who touches the genitalia of adults and children against their will, presuming to lecture a stranger on what is decent.​
    The TSA didn’t protect Mark Fraunfelder’s daughter. Instead, the TSA dished out another dose of the sexual humiliation at which this agency excels (the only thing at which it excels). The TSA put this lowlife in a uniform and gave him leeway to harass women. This, along with everything else the TSA does, only makes us less safe.​
    I wish we could publish the name of this airport miscreant; we would if we knew it. Instead, we encourage you again to file your complaints during the last few days of the TSA’s public comment session, here. See what other people have already written, here.​

    Yikes. :confused: I don't think I'd have the nerve to wear that "ensemble". Of course, gauze skirts are so not goth.

    Harkins’ work area at the airport, which is reportedly between Terminals D and E, is a bustling place that sees thousands of people, including young children, pass through each day. Harkins previously served as a priest in Catholic churches throughout New Jersey until 2002, when he was accused of abusing two young girls (a new lawsuit being brought by a third women is now in process).

    I had a friend tell me about how a lady was dressed when he ran into town to pay a bill. This was New England during the 80's.

    Loosely knit dress, nothing under!

    She's looking for a daddy - so unless you're 75+, she'd not be interested. :)

    Suppose he dressed like that to avoid a grope?
