I wonder if a guy can request a female screener or vice versa?

You can request an x-ray if you don't want someone else looking at your junk.

Or, your children's junk.

I guess a "regular" x-ray machine shows your bones and internal organs. I wasn't aware of any such machines that you walk through at the Sunport. Somewhere else I read that they would give you the pat down search if you objected to the new "see me nude" technology.

I guess they give you the option of laying down on the conveyor belt and getting a ride through!

Does this mean that you don't have to get rid of all metal objects before going through the checkpoint? If so: bonus!

I would be extremely interested, and not in a pervy way, to see what the see-you-naked machines actually show. I mean, is it like the magic glasses that they used to advert in the back of boys adventure magazines, or is it something considerably more abstract? What are the images like?

I would object just because it's absolutely absurd. But as far as being Sensitive About My F-ing Figure, I'd just tell myself what I've told myself before going for embarrassing medical exams or conversations: "Don't even blink. Anyone who went through medical school has seen a lot worse."

Will they provide counseling for the poor bastards who have to sit in front of the screens?

Here's an article from Mother Jones back in October. I can't even tell you how much this infuriates me. The thought of some stranger getting to look at my "junk" because of this country's fear-mongers is beyond my comprehension. If this is not an invasion of our privacy, I don't know what is. If I never fly again, I won't submit to this. I truly don't understand why more people aren't up in arms about this. You get to see me naked if I DECIDE you get to see me naked. Can you say "Police State?"

Enjoy the cavity search. They have a great sense of humor in TSA.
