Recently a TSA screener decided to make a joke about the contents of writer Jill Filipovic’s luggage, which included sex toys. After arriving at her hotel, Filipovic was unpacking when she discovered that her bag had been searched by a TSA screener who, having seen the sex toys, wrote on a TSA document: “GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL" (see below picture).
“Total violation of privacy, wildly inappropriate and clearly not ok, but I also just died laughing in my hotel room,” wrote Filipovic on her blog.
While proving themselves adept at identifying women’s sex toys, TSA screeners missed a loaded gun inside a checked bag at Los Angeles International Airport recently.
67,000 passenger loss claims (potential thefts) have been filed against the TSA since 2003, a figure the federal agency finds completely acceptable.
