133 Words or Less: Egregious TSA Hypocrisy

The TSA recently fired two agents caught in a scheme to allow a male screener to grope “hot men.”

According to NBC News, the male agent signaled a coworker when he spotted a guy he wanted to grope, then she would enter the sex of the passenger as female, triggering an anomaly requiring a groin patdown.

“These alleged acts are egregious and intolerable,” the TSA said in a statement.

So, if some dude chooses to grope me because he thinks I’m hot, it’s “egregious.” But if I’m picked for routine groping based on TSA policy, it’s totally cool! After all, groping is a standard TSA checkpoint procedure. I guess I’m supposed to feel better if I receive a federally approved grope.

Seems like egregious hypocrisy to me.

A grope is a grope.

    Americans have been subjecting themselves to groping and frisking without questioning it. They don’t want to think very hard about the logic and rationale for TSA security procedures.

    I can’t figure out why this is in the news now.


    “Wow, I’m a 17 year old girl who just got back from a school trip on Sunday night, just a few days before you posted this. Our group flew from Dulles on the way out… And wouldn’t you know, every single girl (15-18 years old) was body scanned and/or patted down, but zero of the boys were. I felt uncomfortable but was assuming they had a reason, but this … this makes me feel scared and angry and violated. Who knows why, maybe they had a reason or maybe they just wanted to look at a bunh of naked young women.”
