That'* not exactly what I had in mind, but since this is a family forum with a lot of YOUNGER people on here.

both sides were wrong here, i think.

she was an idiot for not realizing that they might be an issue.

they were idiots for letting it get to that point.

TSA was totally at fault. There is no way that nipple rings set off those sensors. I should know, I have one. Went through just fine. Same goes for earrings. I've never had to take them out. And IIRC, policy states that if the possible threat is verified visually they can okay it. They didn't have to make her take them out. I think it was a blatent case of invasion of privacy, discrimination and even possibly sexual assault. I think that she should totally press charges. She would have my support.

She should have known better and had them taken off ahead of time. Lesson learned I say.

Some piercings you can not take out or else they will heal over quickly. My tongue for example, the bar cannot be left out for more than half an hour or it will start to heal. It also depended on when she got the piercing done. Was it a fresh piercing, and what gauge steel was used?? Still there are several thousand people who fly with piercings and you don't ever hear about them having to remove them.

Why was she singled out?? If it were such a big deal, it would happen more and more, and then those people with piercings would be warned ahead of time.

I don't see how it is her fault at all. The piecings aren't WMD or anything stupid like that. I'm not taking my dang piercings out for anyone. They don't set off the detectors there isn't that much metal in them to do so. You can see by the picture how small they are.

The wand is more sensative and my bra hooks have set that off before, but I think the guy was a perv and just held it there until it beeped because then he had to practically feel me up to make sure I wasn't lying about wearing a bra
