    This is from November. I believe they have backed off of this kind of feel over. In this video, the screener is all over the breast, and right up the crotch of this poor kid. Maddening. This has changed though, a bit has it?

    Nov. 1 was when they felt up my wife ...

    ... under her bra.

    Nope, they are still doing this style of groping.

    This month at MEM I watched, and vociferously complained, as they did same and worse to my wife.

    Yeah, they actually lifted her shirt so the A.S.S. could stick 2 fingers to the second knuckle into the waistband of her pants.

    She also went further up her leg than in this video, at which point I asked, loudly, why they were rubbing her labia.

    I was corrected that they do not "rub" genitals. :confused:

    Wait, who corrected you? The organism doing the screening or another one standing around?

    Because if it was the one doing the screening...that's just unbelievable. "HURR DURR I DUN RUB GEN...GEN...GENERALS!" *rub rub rub*

    "What are you doing right now then?"


    It's a shame you didn't nab video of that, because that would go viral in a nanosecond. "TSO says it doesn't rub genitals at the same time as it rubs genitals."

    It was the 2 striper witnessing me witness the groping.

    I was told specifically I could not stand in the area I could best witness the grope as I would be standing in the way of the screening, and then she stood exactly in that spot. Challenged on it her response was, "I need to witness it." Uh, dur, OK. :eek:

    The conversation went down something like this:

    "We do not consent to rubbing of genitals."

    "We do not rub genitals."

    "That's odd, because mine have been rubbed twice now, and you are not authorized, in any way to rub my wife's."

    "We do not rub genitals. The hand is slid up the inner thigh until meeting body resistance."

    "And what do you suppose is at body resistance."

    "It's where the leg meets the body."

    "So you'll be coming into contact with her labia there?"


    "Well, what else is there but her labia?"

    "Sir, it is body resistance."

    "Do you have a labia? Do you suppose if I slid my hand up your thigh until meeting your body's resistance I most likely would contact your labia?"


    "So you are going to touch her labia?"

    "We don't rub it."

    "That's disgusting! Does your family know you touch genitals for a living?"

    "I'm just doing my job."

    And that's when I learned that MEM is a 3-ring circus.

    I love it. Personally, I find this sort of thing (humiliating people in public) hard to do, but this is great if you can pull it off smoothly. Make them reluctant to grope us.

    I don't recall if you disclosed publicly here what your profession is, but let's just say that barbell has had a lot more experience in dealing with people up front & personally than most of us.

    So It's just another lie, that they don't touch sex organs anymore. Sattso says changes are coming. I wonder what they are. Maybe oils and soft music..

    Took three of my teenagers to smd flying to dest with no train service. No scans there. Told them what might occur and let em knowthey need not comply. All three advanced black belts, not raised to be doormats, oldest boy 6. 3,aggressive but nice. Makes a good anti tsa scarecrow. Sucks that I have to worry so much about this
