Relevant Now: Commando Kilt-Wearing

As you may have already heard, today is “Opt Out Day,” in which people intend to protest the TSA naked x-ray machines by refusing to go through them and instead get a pat down. Some have even called for more drastic measures—Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic has come up with the brilliant idea for men to wear kilts, commando-style, through security. At the same time, the Scottish Tartans Authority has issued a warning about hygiene and wearing kilts without underwear. While it’s actually the tradition to go underpants-less with a kilt, the association makes the following plea: “We are saying, please use common sense and decency, as it can be unhygienic and it can be offensive. If you are out and about in a kilt, then remember to show some decorum. If you are hiring a kilt, then wear underwear because some of them are left in a horrible state.” (Eww!) There was no word on whether the well-timed statement was in response to Opt Out Day … or if they’re just having a bit of a cleanliness problem in Scotland at the moment. [New York Times]
