I haven't gotten on a plane in years. One of my biggest fears is that one of the kids will have an emergency and need me immediately. I'm within driving distance of two of them, the third lives too far away to make driving practical. I will not go through a scanner which would leave me open to being groped. Although I don't think I could get through security with my dignity totally intact I've been thinking how perhaps I could get through with some of it. My husband thinks I'm nuts with my plan - and maybe I am so input or criticism from any of you will be taken in the spirit it is given. I remember years ago that swimsuits used to come with these hard plastic bra inserts. Not silicon, not foam - these were hard plastic that covered the entire breast area. I found something similar on the internet called "breast shells" used by breastfeeding women to keep clothing from irritating that area. Looks similar to the plastic bra inserts I remember. My thinking is that perhaps putting something like that in my bra would at least give me some sort of barrier from the groping - as well as looking probably better in a sweater than I ever have before - but I digress. The bottom area is a no brainer. Lots of choices of feminine protection to choose from - would keep probing fingers from going too far. Am I crazy to think any of this would help? I know I just couldn't stand there like a victim and not at least try to make the gropers job harder. Am I grasping at straws here?
