    What a hysterical bunch I share this board with. Honest to Pete; next I expect to read that TSA agents are Martians and plan to implant microchips in us during pat downs.

    Just have a good cry over this, JB, and then somehow, find the strength to go on.

    I don't think I agree with Maddy on the TSA overall, but in this instance I do. Maybe there could be specific instances where this has some merit, but to seriously worry about calling pat-downs on children a game leading to sexual abuse sounds hysterical.

    What I do not get is why you are trying to blame this on TSA hysteria when it is clearly a result of child abuse hysteria. You know about that don't you, the same thing that gets people to call police if a parent lets their child walk to school unsupervised?

    I'm torn because it truly does desensitize young kids to the concept of strangers touching them in their private areas, but even an enhanced pat down isn't the same as a sexual violation.

    If the child flies (and is made to go through pat-downs) often, then perhaps I can see this having that desensitizing effect. How often are the children going to be going through this process I wonder?
