As the upcoming American Renaissance conference approaches, my excitement grows. But along with the excitement, a sense of foreboding increasingly clouds my soul. Government assurances that their new x-ray machines are perfectly safe mean little to me. They have no credibility. I am in good company, as many have raised serious doubts regarding their safety. But safety is not my only concern. Like so many others, I find the process humiliating.
As for the alternative, being patted down, I do not find that very appealing either. I simply do not relish the idea of another man fondling my privates. But not to worry; Obama says he “understands people’s frustrations“. How comforting! Of course, he has never subjected himself to the same indignity.
The T.S.A. makes sure that passengers are patted down only by people of the same gender. I wonder why this is so. Many of us men would be far more cooperative if we were patted down by lovely young ladies. As a matter of fact, such a policy would probably greatly increase the ranks of air travelers. Clearly, they wish to avoid any semblance of sexual gratification. But, for a homosexual man, what more appealing a job is there than patting down other men. Each morning, he would eagerly look forward to work.
What are the odds that many of those T.S.A. agents are homosexual? Of course we have no statistics because they are not allowed to ask. It is illegal to discriminate against them. By the same token, is it not also illegal to grope people against their will? What if the man doing the patting down was obviously homosexual and what if he was obviously enjoying himself? I seriously doubt even the T.S.A. would allow him to perform this task. So they make it less obvious – and somehow this is considered okay.
What about an obviously homosexual passenger who clearly wishes to be patted down?
Many, in our society, work tirelessly so that homosexuals may be officially recognized. These people want government to recognize homosexual marriage, homosexual civil rights, homosexual pride and even adoption. I wonder how those advocates feel about homosexual groping at airports. How do they explain the difference between a male T.S.A. agent groping a female passenger and a homosexual male T.S.A. agent groping a male passenger?
I am still considering my options if I end up being confronted with a choice between being x-rayed or molested. Somebody suggested that arriving in a speedo would be a good option. That way, the agents can see everything without having to actually touch. Could I arrive at airport security in a speedo without getting booted from the airport? Or perhaps I could pretend to be homosexual and act as if I am truly excited about the whole process. I could even point to a likely T.S.A. agent and say, “I want to be patted down by him!” Then I could pretend to enjoy every moment of it. Would they arrest me for that? What if that T.S.A. agent actually found me attractive? Perish the thought!
