Planes, trains, and genitalia

Would you expose your genitals to a complete stranger just to get on an airplane? That is no longer a hypothetical question as plans move forward to install scanners in major airports. And this article should disabuse of any notions that the privacy and dignity violations won’t get abused. They already have.

Images of your total body in graphic details will be taken. Those images will be viewed by at least one total stranger. Those images can also be stored, printed, and distributed despite any reassurances you will be given.

Really, how many indignities is too many? When is enough enough? How about random cavity searches? If we don’t push back now that is surely next.

Hit them where it hurts; boycott any airports that put these things in, starting with Heathrow.
