At 6:14, a TSA drudge makes Maria Muldaur’s prediction come to life.
Via Huff Post, Ashley Jessica, a 27-year-old Ph.D student from Toronto, didn’t go to the San Diego Airport looking for a good time.
But it’s all good, because the TSA explains:
About halfway into the procedure, a TSA agent feels the area between Jessica’s breasts, and Jessica puts up her hands as if to protect herself from further touching.
Less than two minutes later, the agent appears to run her hands all the way up the inside of Jessica’s leg. Jessica pulls away and becomes visibly uncomfortable.
“OK, you need to hold still for this process,” says another TSA agent, who is off-screen.
“She just touched my vagina!” Jessica replies. “Seriously! That was not my upper thigh.” (Jessica eventually submitted to the pat-down and was cleared to fly to Toronto.)
In review of the closed-circuit video, it is abundantly clear that the two TSA officers conducting the pat-down carried out their responsibilities in a professional and polite manner and according to procedure, offering the passengers the opportunity to have the pat-down conducted in a private setting and taking time to explain each step along the way.So if you want to touch random women’s body parts (and I refuse to be drawn into the “vagina is an internal canal and not on the surface” debate again), put on a blue shirt, behave in a “professional and polite manner,” and offer to do it in a private setting. So says the government. Unless you’re a college student, where even thinking about touching of any body part would be intolerable.
