Opt Out of a Body Scanner and Embarrass the TSA workers

There are reports of malicious activities with TSA workers using the body scanners at various airports. From poking fun at the passengers body parts to printing out the x-rays for personal use, the use a body scanner violates our privacy rights. I would rather get a full pat down than go through a body scanner. TSA is using an obtrusive way to make the passenger think twice before asking a pat down, and use the body scanner instead. It is likely that TSA is making the rigorous pat down as a deterrent.

If these TSA employees continue to belittle or embarrass these passengers, I would personally make it a point to embarrass them back. If they want to cup my private parts, I would moan to put the inspector in an embarrassing moment. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
