I flew recently and was picked for a "random pat down". (Oh joy!) Honestly, it's not that big of a deal. This lady just patted me everywhere and in more personal places would stop and warn me and say "I'm going to pat you right here with the back of my hand", patted me with the back of her hand and went on. She seriously said it like 10 times until finally I was like, got it, back of your hand, just do it!!! I didn't feel like my privacy was invaded, I didn't feel like my rights were being taken away, it's just not the huge ordeal everyone making of it. If it keeps ONE person from bringing a bomb onto a plane then I can sacrifice being patted with some random lady who I'll never see again's back of her hand for 2 seconds.
Now, if the airlines decide that bombers are going to start shoving bombs up their rectum and need to do a full cavity search? Well, I'm going to be taking a lot more car trips! But seriously, it's not that bad.
