Crazy. Movement, Uprising

2012-04-18 18:54:52.957639+00 by meuon 4 comments


"A man who said he was fed up with being harassed by airport security stripped to his birthday suit while in an airport screening lane Tuesday evening and was arrested."

I've had that thought run through my mind.. standing there in line. One person doing it is crazy. two might be gay or sexual, 50 and it's a movement or uprising. The trick would be to entice the rest of the line to do it at the same time.

You know, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. They may think it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

For years now I've been dreaming of a performance that would likely get me arrested, but would be *oh* *so* satisfying. I'd walk up to the airport line wearing a perfectly ordinary business suit. I'd take off shoes, belt, and jacket, as one does, and then I'd blithely carry on: first the shirt, revealing a plain white sleeveless top, then the pants, revealing plain white boxers; then I'd doff the undershirt, and the boxers, and finally walk through the scanners wearing nothing but a very brief piece of gold lamé.

Instead, I just make a point of wearing my kilt whenever I fly, and then refusing to go through the pornoscanners.

I've been hassled by TSA to take my sweater off, politely refused, hassled some more and finally said "Fine. I don't have anything on underneath, but FINE." They back track REALLY fast as I start unbuttoning. One time after that happened, a female TSA agent told me that they'd had a gal take her sweater off, leaving her in a bra, and that the TSA agent doing the asking (happened to be male) had her put the sweater back on pronto, bumbling all the way.

Whether I have anything on under it or not, I normally consider my sweater/jacket - and certainly scarf and/or belt - a part of my outfit and resent having to put myself back together again. A person can take a lot of TIME to carefully arrange that scarf you just want me to whip on and off, buddy. ...so just don't wear it flying...I know.

I think the answer isn't to start mass stripping, it's to get in line with just one layer in the first place. Then when the TSA tells you to "take it off" and you do, and you're nekkid...well, you should not be arrested. After all, at that point you were just following instructions. Can you make your pants fall down when you take off your belt? I think if that happened enough - again, with nothing on underneath - it would do the trick....

I had my first experience of going through airport security with my HeartMate II hardware attached (including batteries).

For someone who likely looks "wired to explode" to some people, it was painless and took less than 5 minutes.
