I can't.

Everybody needs to read this.

I think I'm going to be sick.

I am not even fucking kidding.

If for some emergency I have to fly, I happen to be on my period, and they tell me to remove my tampon during the gropefest, I will tell them that shit. One woman's already been made to remove her pad.

I refuse to go through the porno/radiation scanners, and I refuse to go to a private room for the gropefest. I want witnesses to lessen the chance of them groping me more than they're already ordered to do, and to help back me up if they do.

This is something I said in another post about the TSA's fuckery:

...that's how it's supposed to be in the States, re: same sex person patting you down. Not only does that cause a lot of problems for people that are gay/bi/intersex/trans/whatever else doesn't fit the binary, it doesn't completely remove the risk of a TSA employee feeling you up for personal enjoyment. For all I know, the female employee patting me (I identify as a straight cis female) down might grope me even more unnecessarily than she's already ordered to.

I forgot to mention sexual assault victims, the disabled/handicapped, and those whose faiths don't allow anyone, even a doctor, to touch certain parts of the body.

This shit needs to stop. It shouldn't have ever started in the first place.

If this article didn't piss me off enough already, this did:

"Yet another reason why I would do poorly in the army...I wouldn't not be able to let something like that slide and Id end up snipering my own men."

"furthermore, and forgive me for making a semi baseless characterjudgement, you don't seem like the sort of cloth-eared, thoughtless, stupid, reckless, dull, pointlessly-patriotic, xenophobic, murderous cunts that make for a model soldier, particularly in the United States.

correct me, of course, if i'm wrong"


EXCUSE ME?!

Both my parents, several family members and several friends of mine have served or are serving in the military, and they are not anything like that.

Most. Soldiers. Aren't. Do not judge the many by the actions of the few idiots out there.

Edit to clarify:

I've seen numbers that range from one in six to one in three women being assaulted/raped in their lives, so really, I can't say I'm surprised. I don't trust any of the male statistics, because the majority of those are not reported due to the idiotic belief that men can't be raped, or that it makes them look weak.

What pissed me off about the article itself was the fact that the military is sweeping this shit under the rug. Don't get me wrong, I'm aware that a lot of colleges and businesses do it too. It's to prevent any negative light shown on them.

Thing is, though, it's wrong. It needs to stop. More people need to speak out, to let it be known that they won't stand for it.
