Agreed. This is beyond horrible & disgusting. I've posted both articles on FB & Twitter & would suggest everyone else do the same if you use these.

This is really disgusting.
Let me see if I have this correct: You want me to tell my child that when a stranger wants to touch them all over their body EVEN in their private areas it should be considered a game? How is this any different than what a pedophile would say to my child as they were trying to molest them?

And this is why we are taking the train to FL for vacation this year.

Oh I dare any ......... to say that in my earshot as if the child is not my own i will be giving that parent a earful, the so will the ......... clown and pervert will be just the start of it. Seriously parents just need to start filing criminal complaints against these clowns as this is BS. If i had kids of my own and they attempted this, that ......... would be regretting touching my kids immediately and with reminders for a very long time.

It isn't. The formula looks like this:

[TSA statement to prepare children for grope] = [pedophile statement to prepare children for abuse]

"That's Ok, Johnny-the nice man in the blue shirt is only playing a game."

What cerebral lightweight at the TSA thought this truckload of cr*p up?

Makes you think that some pedophile is in charge of TSA policy formulation.

If I were the parent starting to hear something of that nature, I would immediately call a halt to it, get the supervisor, and have them rehearse the whole thing over with me first. Then tell the groper to keep his mouth shut while I tell my child whats happening.

That or get the heck out of there. Really, flights aren't worth it.

Many pedophiles (according to published profiles) will not only call it a game, but offer rewards or gifts like electronic toys, candy, or stickers for compliance and/or silence.

This is so vile, I am livid.

As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I remember the "let's just think of this as a game" talk from the d'bag that couldn't keep his hands off of me.

Any TSO that participates in trying to convince children that a pat down is a game is aiding sexual predators and conditioning children to allow themselves to be touched by strangers when those strangers call it a "game."

This is an absolutely disgusting practice and so sickening, I am physically nauseous.

There are no words to fully describe what I am feeling right now.

Watching the TSA is like watching a blind man cross the freeway. Only in this case, a very bad blind man where you're rooting for the cars.

Now the TSA is doing an MJ. Come on kids, let's play rubba rubba at the airport.

the TSA rank and file now have even more cause to be proud of their uniforms... what a loser organization.
