I’m behind the TSA 100 percent in their efforts to secure safety in the sky. If anything, they need more discretion and more leeway to do their jobs properly.
I travel a lot. I put my money where my mouth is. I’ve been through those full-body screens. Big deal. I’ve had TSA officials (women) poking at my underwire bra. Couldn’t care less. If it means the plane is more likely to take off and land safely, you can poke away all you want.

The answer, judging from one woman’s written testimony, seems to be yes.
A customer of popular women’s health company, Gladrags, relayed her recent experience at the hands of the TSA via email.
