    Do I think it`s absolutely ridiculous? Yes

    But we can`t let some people go and not others. That is the world we have created. It`s racial profiling if they don`t have the same rules for EVERYONE.

    This is how you wanted things, sue happy America. This is what you got.

    & what did she do? She complied. She went into the bathroom and allowed them to humiliate her. People need to start standing up for themselves. Tell them no. Can`t get on your flight? Then don`t get on your flight. That`s WHY they know they can do these things, "oh, these people will do whatever we say, they have to get to their plane"! Let the airports empty, there are plenty of other ways to travel. Cross country train trips are wonderful.

    Who do you suggest they search next Lillian? A child? A 90 year old grandmother in a wheelchair who has diapers on?

    Fact is, they let people who are more likely to be terrorists through, out of fear of lawsuits.

    You can sugar coat it all you want, but an Arab person, with all the features (beard, Muslim religious garb, etc etc) is more likely to be a terrorist than a white woman with blonde hair with three kids.

    auburnjunky, knowing how our country is right now, do you REALLY think someone would waltz into an airport looking like America`s stereotype of a terrorist to commit an act of terrorism? Not unless they wanted to be caught, that`s for sure.

    Please learn the definition of synonym. It`s like saying dog and chihuahua are synonyms, thus all dogs are chihuahuas. Most members of Al Qaeda may look like that, but not all terrorists look like that, because terrorist and Al Qaeda aren`t synonyms. One example is the underwear bomber.

    @DixxyRarr she was actually leaving Hawaii`s Island, Kauai, where she may very well live or be there with her husband who is stationed there in the military. Just because someone is in Hawaii they aren`t necessarily at an `over priced all inclusive resort`, shoot she might be a maid at the `over priced all inclusive resort`. What does where she was or what she was doing have to do with TSA forcing her to demonstrate her breast pump?

    "Lillian: Knowing the TSA, a terrorist would walk into an airport looking like that if they wanted to get by, because they wouldn`t get checked."

    Fear mongering. Also, highly unlikely.

    "Yes I know the definition of synonym. Per the definition of synonym, Al Qaeda is the same as terrorist."
    synonym - a word having the same or nearly the same meaning as another in the language, as joyful, elated, glad.

    Essentially, you can replace a word with its synonym and the meaning of the sentence will remain mostly the same. This is not the case with terrorist and Al Qaeda and I honestly don`t see how you can`t see that. "The underwear bomber was a terrorist" changes to "The underwear bomber was Al Qaeda." That`s not true. There`s no way you can spin that to be true. They are not synonyms. Al Qaeda is classified as terrorists, just like chihuahuas are classified as dogs. But they aren`t synonymous.

    There is no such thing as Al Qaeda. It is simply the brain child of the "CIA-eda" to produce fake terrorism. TSA agents are federal goons who can`t get jobs elsewhere because they are pedophiles and sex offenders. Who else would stick their hands down children`s pants or grope old women?

    She pours the milk away because she "figures that it`s not allowed"? What about checking the rules beforehand?

    And yes, I better have those people checked that seem to pose "no threat at all" but have enough opportunities to hide threatening objects.

    You know what`s worse than her getting humiliated? A terrorist posing as a mother (or actually being one?) and because no one wants the humiliate her, she slips a bomb/gun through and kills thousands of people. People need to quit whining about security checks, it only takes one terrorist to slip through to kill many people, and yes, terrorists use pregnant women and children because they aren`t nearly as suspicious. At the airport here, they only make nonwhite males go through the full body scanner. (It`s in Alabama, so it`s not that craazy.)

    @Draculya: "Request half and half." My first true LOL of the day.

    @AJ: I think you get this, but I believe what Lillian`s saying is that Al Qaeda isn`t a *synonym* for "terrorists," it`s a *subset*. Meaning that while all members of Al Qaeda are terrorists (either by actual practice or support of terrorist practices), not all terrorists are members of Al Qaeda.

    Lillian`s kinda hot when she gets all logical. =^.^=

    Smutleybutt & drworm2002: I did some quick research, and you`re right, she was on business in Hawaii (and just going between islands, she lives there). BUT- I still view flying as a very special privilege (even if it`s required for your job) that comes with some sacrifices in order to maintain (or try to maintain) safety. Sure- the system isn`t that great, but it`s better than nothing.

    Bottom line: I just don`t feel THAT bad for her. Sh*t happens at airports, man. Get out yo pump and deal wit it.

    A similar situation happened in 2010 to a breastfeeding mom from Arizona named Stacey Armato. In Stacey`s case, not only did she know the TSA rules about transporting her breastmilk, but she also brought a printed copy of them with her to show the TSA agents - and they STILL treated her like a security risk and a second class citizen. TSA later apologized to Stacey, but in an interview she gave, she explains that it was pretty much evident that any staff retraining which may have taken place didn`t "stick."
