Everyone’s getting all bent out of shape over the new TSA rules. Give me a break!
First of all, you’re only going to get patted down if you set off the alarm or choose not to use the body scanner. For the alarm, just make sure you don’t have anything metal on you! The lady in the above-linked article is a tool. I understand that some people have medical devices (knees, head plates, etc.), but they need to make that known to the TSA up front, and they will get a ‘normal’ pat down.
As for the scanners: use ‘em! You’re not gonna get radiation, so just stop that horseshit right now. Plus, the people that complain about the radiation are the same ones who get smashed at Friday’s once they get through the gate and/or gorge themselves on cheeseburgers and large fries! Clearly, health is not your top priority.
Bottom line, if you don’t like it, you can drive or just stay home. No one is forcing you to get on a plane, so #quitcherbitchin.
