Immature: A former TSA officer has revealed that he had witnessed his co-workers laughing at the nude X-ray images of passengers going through full-body scanners

A former Transpiration Security Administration (TSA) agent-turned-anonymous blogger recently revealed that his co-workers routinely make fun of passengers' nude body images while reviewing them in backrooms.

The unnamed ex-TSA officer, who writes for the blog Taking Sense Away, received a note from a reader which said: 'Tell us, please, what really happens in that private room and why the TSA does not want it seen in public or recorded.'

In response, the blogger wrote that while he has not experienced or heard of anything outright illegal or illicit going on in the private screening rooms, officers manning the image operator (IO) rooms where passengers' nude X-ray images are reviewed often behave in a highly inappropriate manner.

I have arthritis in my hands that unfortunately causes me to flip these ba$tards the "bird" as I submit to my overlords.

Sorry......

Aren’t the backscatter images far more detailed and clearer than the illustrations shown above?

I would probably laugh at them if I saw them naked, too. People should lighten up!

Human stupid behaviour.

40 years ago, I saw postal workers playing football with an urn on the way to its destination. The package was marked.

The object of Der Gropenfuhrer’s(aside from carrying out orders from His Satanic Majesty) TSA is to demoralize, debase, and defile the American People. They are a bunch of incompetents, thieves, and worse.

Precisely why I wouldn't fly if I could. Get nuked by an X-Ray to see your junk in a photo or get your junk groped by these fat TSA (Touch Sexual Area) union thugs.

Looks like the person on the right is wearing a strap-on dildo. It doesn’t surprise me if they were laughing at her. Since it was concealed, it wouldn’t be inappropriate to share with their fellow officers what they perceived as an attempt to hide the passenger’s true identity.

Reason #2 why I haven’t flown commercial since 9-12-01. If I can’t drive there, I don’t go. Period. Screw the criminal, corrupt TSA crap.

Well, I am sure we are all shocked to learn of this. /s But the piece calls this guy a "former Transpiration Security Administration (TSA) agent", so I guess I am relieved that he is not talking about the Transportation Security Administration. Maybe the people he describes were in charge of breathing.

Just curious. Why do you submit? Do you really, really have to get on an airline's plane? If you are not required by your employment you deserve the humiliation that you get.

I wonder if there is some xray reflective material we could place on our backs or abdomens to let The TSA know how we feel about their scans? like the letters "FU TSA" or "TSA KMA"

If you google backscatter image you will find some images of much better quality. I would image that the quality can be quite good, probably depends on the operator how good the image is. You can bet thou that the images released to the public will deliberately be of a poor quality.

I think boric acid powder in a piece of clothing or some such would work.

There were some clothes online that had the Fourth Amendment printed on them (in the xray pics) .

You can always ask to opt out. It only takes a few minutes. The weird thing when you opt out is they don’t even have you pass through the metal detector.

Buddy, you dont know how giddy one can get after working all night. Maybe if I had not been over tired I would have given the subject matter the reverence you desire. Get lost, fool.

I am saying I would probably laugh at the TSA clowns if they were parading naked, you idiot.

I get your point. Everyone who works at night transforms into power abusing sexual perverts and it’s soooo funny. /s/

Would you please look again at the images. There is nothing sexual about them. They look like androids or robots. There is nothing remotely sensual about the images. They are a caricature of the human body, not an accurate image.

Do you believe people should wear burkas? How about xray technicians viewing xrays of a thigh or pelvic area? Are all xrays to be treated with reverence and never snickered at? Google “xray humor” and you may be appalled.

If it were actual pictures of naked people or naked people, I can see why someone may be offended, but these crude images, give me a break.

You might want to stop while you are behind. Xray techs and docs are not giggling about xrays. That is because they are PROFESSIONALS; not TSA losers.

TSA agents are abusive of innocent people, unprofessional and sometimes criminal.

You did not answer my questions, but have moved on to other topics. I will respond when you answer the questions in my previous post.

That is no different from attorneys having guffaws at your earnestly filling in what you consider your solemn civic duty as a dumb courtroom juror.
