Don't get worked up about those naked airport scanners, because TSA agents are mocking your personal foibles anyway

Blogger Will Wilkinson and others are griping about the new “fancy ritual-humiliation scanners that electronically disrobe passengers.”

But a former TSA screener tells us all to put on our man pants and quit complaining about the digi-strip-search because, heck, the screeners are all mocking our personal lives behind our backs anyway.

The blogger (blog title “one empowered woman's struggle against the world”) writes “shut up and get scanned“:

I have seen grown men and women throw hissy fits like a two year old child because they were asked to remove their shoes. This is the stuff you should be ashamed of and worried about TSA officers seeing. This is what should make you feel humiliated because trust me, we may be professionals but when you come through the checkpoint with crazy stuff in your bag or acting like an idiot, we are going to talk about you after you leave. Oh hell yes we are. It is going to become the highlight of the conversation at TSA officer gatherings.

The travel blog “View from the Wing” has more charming highlights here.
