Consider that anyone with prosthetic breasts (breast cancer survivors, a lot of transsexuals undergoing the real life test) or the like are going to get flagged as suspicious because those lumps of silicon (external, not internal) are going to be indistinguishable from lumps of plastic explosives.

Likewise FtM TSes which their breasts bound. And "pcking" a fake penis in their underwear.

For that matter, you just *know* that comments will be made about the MtF TSes being "chicks with a dick". :-(

And outside the US there are countries where being discovered to be a TS could be fatal.

Given that they have had to dismiss TSA folks for using drugs on the job (it was on the news tonight) and that there have been numerous complaints about behavior of TSA folks...

Oh yeah, they've had to arrest TSA personnel for stealing from baggage.

They aren't screening worth a damn.

ps. it's not *rude* that folks are worried about. It's bigots and worse.

Trans people already have trouble as it is with TSA as it is. This would only make things worse. So, while it's a bit ironic that it was child porn laws that struck it down, it's good that it was struck down.

Alas, the story doesn't say it was struck down. Just that there will be legal problems with trying to use it on anybody under 18. Very different thing.

Actually I wondered that when I saw the new scanners on the news, hehe.
