You can speak only for yourself, not for your 45,000 fellow screeners. In a barrel that large, you can be sure to find some bad apples. You know that as well as I do. Maybe they'll be weeded out eventually, but in the meantime, our own government ("...of the people, by the people, for the people") is forcing us -- women, especially -- to endure potential abuse and, even under the best of circumstances, humiliation. A government that is responsive to its citizens will put an end to this sort of thing. Then we'll both be happy.
