What we do know about full-body scanners is that you can wear whatever you want to try and evade the prying eyes of the TSAheavy wool sweaters, pleather pants, and even the finest vicuña coatbut the machines will display all your naughty bits to whoever is on duty. For this reason, the UK is understandably upset that full-body scanners violate child pornography laws, since they essentially reveal genitalia. Thus, passengers under the age of 18 are exempt from full-body scans while the matter undergoes further discussion by the airport council.
This got us thinkinghow dirty are these full-body scan images, anyway? Armed with the full power of Google Image search, we set out to find the nakedest, most revealing full-body scan pictures available on the webwhich are probably TSA testers anyways. And below are the results...
Bum pics! Look at those big ol' butts! What's more, look at that big ol' gun and that big ol' knife
Ooo yea, look at how hot and sexy this naked man is! No, he's really not, is he?
To tell you the truth, the above images remind us more of CSI-type stuff, like chalk outlines and autopsy photos than sexy pictures. Going through airport security is not a who's hotter naked contest; it's a who's carrying the most dangerous items contest, and full-body scanners are calibrated to pick out knives and not G-strings (although they will see a switchblade in your G-string). And if it's an issue of making passengers embarrassed and developing a bad body image, well that's what we have magazines for!
How do you feel about full-body scan privacy? Would you gladly get virtually naked for a machine, or would you rather keep your private parts private?
