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

Or, your children's junk.

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.

Thanks so much sophie for the link hint! Here's the "Mother Jones" article.
I must say that I find the "cavity search" comment extremely offensive. But, in a way, it truly emphasizes my point. My outrage about being seen "naked" by strangers is NOT about body image or prudity. It is about my right as a human being to make certain decisions about my body. We teach that very right to our children. I certainly go to my ob-gyn and submit myself to necessary tests. This is different. And the basis for its "need" is different. A very slippery slope indeed.

Didn't mean to extremely offend anyone. My comment was directed at SoyJames and somewhat tongue in cheek. I'll go on the record as decidedly against nonconsentual cavity searches. And against nonconsentual nakedness.
