    How, in good conscious, could anyone think this woman is dangerous and subject her to a partial undressing? I really wonder if the TSO perps feel good about themselves after this kind of stuff.

    That is such a brilliant post from FliesWay2Much, and is an excellent summary of the mentality of checkpoint workers.

    It's a lot of fun to watch cognitive dissonance surface though when you finally crack their shell.

    I wouldn't let up on a certain 2-striper who was witnessing me witness my wife's most recent "pat down". She began showing signs of duress through unconscious, subtle physical cues, and as we neared the end I laid it on, "Your family must be proud of the job you do here, harassing people and touching their sex organs." I knew then, by the look on her face that I had gotten to her.

    That's why it's important that every time we repeat the lines:

    Is your family proud of what you do?
    My husband/wife/lover used to run their fingers through my hair like that.
    That's how my dad/uncle/older brother used to touch me there. How odd.
    Touching my labia/breasts/testicles/penis like that for a job is disgusting!

    It wears on them. And it wears them down. One front of this war against TSA must be psychological warfare back at the people "just doing their jobs".
