How To Keep Your Private Parts Private In Airport Security

Rebellion against the new TSA airport security measures is beginning to escalate. People are already pulling stunts, inventing protective pasties, and this coming Wednesday (“Opt Out Day”) promises to bring the drama (we’re secretly dying to see what happens even though it’s sure to cause a major air travel hassle). For those who wish to protest a bit more peacefully, there are now also underwear options thanks to Rocky Flats Gear, a company that produces undergarments for both men and women (bras, panties, tighty-whities) with strategically placed x-ray-blocking fig leaves. When you go through the full body scanner at the airport, the patches block the image, so you can attempt to retain some dignity. Of course, these might prove useless if the TSA thinks you’re hiding something and then forces you into the pat down. Worth a try though, maybe? [Rocky Flats Gear] Keep reading »

    Airport Security Plays With Pliers

    Back in 2004, Nicole Richie caused alarm when her nipple piercings set off airport security. While the reality show star got to go after she flashed TSA (Transportation Security Authority) officers, when you’re some nobody from Texas, they bring you a pair of pliers to fix the problem. On February 24th, Mandi Hamlin, 37, was asked to remove her nipple rings after they made the metal detector beep in Lubbock, Texas. Ms. Hamlin offered to show her body jewelry to TSA officers, but they told her that her only option was to take them out if she wanted to board her flight. At the time, she complied, crying from the pain of having to remove the rings with pliers since the skin had grown around them. But now Ms. Hamlin is asking for a public apology. She’s brought out famed feminist lawyer Gloria Allred, to stop this from happening to other travelers. “The last time that I checked a nipple was not a dangerous weapon,” Allred said. [CBS]
