At Inverted Body Scanner Image Shows Naked Body In Full Living Color, it is reported, “The full body scanners to be rolled out in airports across the country not only produce detailed pictures of your genitals, but once inverted some of those images also display your naked body in full living color. And you don’t need to be a graphics wizard to pull off the trick – inverting a photo is a simple process that takes one click and is an option available even in the most basic image editing software.
Airport screeners will have access to huge high definition images that, once inverted, will allow them to see every minute detail of your body. Even without being inverted, the images already break child porn laws in the UK. Reassurances that airport screeners won’t be able to save the images will provide little comfort to parents who know that the crystal clear image of their naked son or daughter being ogled by a TSA thug can merely be snapped with a handheld camera for their enjoyment later.
TV news reports have been deliberately misleading viewers by blurring out faces and genitals of people in images produced by the scanners. When it comes to the real thing, your sexual organs and those of your children will be on full display to officials in back rooms, and with a simple inversion trick, your daughter’s naked body in full living high definition color will be there to be enjoyed by screeners.”
After reading this, I wrote on Facebook, “Who cares??? I say, hey some time ago I know I signed up for this crazieness, so I’m just enjoying the ride however it presents itself in front of me. If I’ve gotta fly, it’s easier to just accept it and focus on my next good thing, rather than fuss and fight about man’s rules.”
I’ve got friends who fly frequently and they are not happy about the new airport security rules. Some of them complain long and loud about what they’re not allowed to take on board anymore. Others just follow the rules, even if it’s an inconvenience.
I’m with the second group. I mean, I would be if I had to fly, which I seldom do. I’d simply find out ahead of time what is permitted and do that. The Transportation Security Administration even has a guide online How To Get Through The Line Faster. It doesn’t seem so tough to conform.
Is it the same as it used to be, back in the day? No.
Is it an inconvenience and an embarrassment for some? Sure.
Would it be easier to drive? Not usually. People fly to save days of driving time. People fly to get there quick and return quick. For me, the quickest way to get anything done is to find out ahead of time what rules there are, get myself in compliance and get on with my happy life. That includes not whining about any unfair or inconvenient rules. And that includes not worrying about airport scanner personnel seeing a detailed pic of anyone’s nude body.
You gotta hand it to the guys who decided to make people feel shame about their bodies. They knew what they were doing. They knew the way to control people is to shame them and guilt them into submission. You’re a sinner and this is why and only via my (fill in the blank) church/group can you come to salvation and that will be $$ per week please – but it buys you salvation. Then, they are so worried about their salvation and get wrapped up in fighting for what someone else told them is right that they forget that all they wanted to do was get to Seattle in the first place.
But complaining about the guys that put all that into motion is just something else to waste time complaining about. The bottom line for me is: Whatever is happening is happening, and if I want to do it, I follow the rules to get where I want to go. And I get my mind back on my happy things to come.
