This needs to go viral. Anybody who still flies and prefers not to go through the backscatter machines, is potentially subject to this kind of systematic abuse by “guards” who sometimes disappear inside their militaristic uniforms.
BTW: Some of the backscatter machines are to be taken out, returning me and those like me who hate them to a time before we had to choose between the two evils of extremely dangerous X-Rays and possibly abusive “pat-downs.”
I’ve always chosen to be groped over to be X-rayed. And to date, have had only one Nazi female guard whose invasive, sadistic pressure to my groin I could have done without. That’s one incident out of about fifteen times flying since the backscatter machines went in. I can just imagine how someone with a history of abuse would, or would not be able to, integrate this kind of violence.
Now that I have a new titanium plate in my wrist, I’ve lost the choice to opt out, and must opt out, get groped, or not fly. Sure wish I could teleport and/or bi-locate already!
