The new standards for frisking people at the airport apply to kids over the age of 12 as well as adults. Some parents have taken issue with same-sex TSA officers touching (albeit with the back of their hands) a child's genitals - particularly after most kids have been taught that only mom, dad and a doctor can touch your private area.


Thoughts?

Well, I used to have to frisk girls that ended up in the detention center and to me it wasn't all that invasive and fairly quick.

I think it's probably ok for 12 and up. Just stinks that it's come to that.

that's really sad, but I guess it'd be fine, I'll be right there with them anyhow
