UPDATE: It’s happened.
*Warning: Guys, you might want to skip this one.
As I listen to all the chatter about the TSA’s new “enhanced” pat down procedures I’m forced to wonder what will happen if I have my period when I refuse to go through the Naked Machine (r). The first couple of days are really heavy. I don’t just use a pad, it’s a bit more like an absorbent flotation device that fits between my legs. Plus, given that I’m not guaranteed access to a bathroom exactly when I need it, I am going to overprotect myself, if you ladies follow my meaning.
So, I’m wondering what those nice TSA gropers are going to do when they encounter a giant menstrual pad. Or a Depends for that matter. I’ve read one account where the TSA groper actually went INSIDE some man’s pants because they were loose. Just saying, I do not recommend that proceedure on bleeding women. Just…don’t go there, mmmmkay?
Also, as I am writing this I’m thinking that the Underwear Bomber wore in his pants a bomb about as bulky as a heavy period pad.
This should be interesting.
