As anyone who thinks about it would realize, the sexualization of the TSA has resulted in some serious morale problems at the TSA, sparking comments like this:
“Molester, pervert, disgusting, an embarrassment, creep. These are all words I have heard today at work describing me, said in my presence as I patted passengers down. These comments are painful and demoralizing, one day is bad enough, but I have to come back tomorrow, the next day and the day after that to keep hearing these comments. If something doesn’t change in the next two weeks I don’t know how much longer I can withstand this taunting. I go home and I cry. I am serving my country, I should not have to go home and cry after a day of honorably serving my country.”
My only disagreement is… you aren’t honorably serving your country.
Simply taking orders isn’t honorable. That defense went out a long, long time ago. Everyone who really serves takes an oath similar to this:
I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
You, at the TSA, are not supporting or defending the Constitution. You are violating it. You know that you are violating it. That is the quiver that crawls up your back every time you put your hands on someone who is obviously not a danger to any American. At this point, the only way you can serve honorably at this point is to quit, or stop performing the invasive searches. Who is going to know if you stop grabbing people’s genitals? Who is going to complain?
As long as this goes on, you are an enemy to the Constitution, a domestic enemy.
