The TSA Cares About Your Vagina

Blogger Jill Filipovic of Feministe nearly died over the weekend after finding the above note in a piece of checked luggage that had been screened by the TSA. Apparently, the agent responsible for her screening found a “personal item” of hers in her suitcase, and could not resist writing this creepy little note to voice his or her (but let’s be honest, probably his) approval. In a blog post titled “Your Tax Dollars At Work,” Filipovic writes of the conflicting sentiments this little invasion of privacy created in her:

Total violation of privacy, wildly inappropriate and clearly not ok, but I also just died laughing in my hotel room.

The TSA: protecting our national security with the utmost maturity and respect! But more importantly, what was it that she had in her bag that was so freak-a-leaky that the agent felt obligated to comment? Writes Jill:

So my parents read this blog and they don’t need to know the details, but I swear it wasn’t, like, a ball gag and nipple clamps. It was about the most basic lady-thing you can imagine.

I’m thinking something along these lines:

Freak on, girlfriend. Freak on.
