× Sample letters to elected officials and airlines. Read the whole thread to get further tips. I like this sample airline letter better than the one in the OP, because it details the background the guy has had as a customer to that particular airline. That's the one I'm going to use as a basis for my letters. I'd suggest specifically listing all the flights you can remember taking with them in the past. The contact information for major airlines is also included in the OP.

× Who to write to

× The ACLU's page on the issue, and the form you can fill out to report experiences or abuse to them

× We Wont Fly: Lots of information and tips here.

× Electronic Privacy Information Center: Has a whole bunch of links to news stories and resources.

× List of experiences with TSA searches

× TSA employees are not LEOs

× Government contractors are awesome.

× This is, uh, one way of dealing with it. And another.

× Video of TSA worker repeatedly grabbing a screaming 3-year-old girl

× Stripping a 71-year-old man, and much more. Note the use of transparent walls!

× The now-famous San Diego incident

× TSA vs. Real Cops: "If I have a citizen who is saying he was assaulted, you can't just send me away."

I do not talk about v. serious stuff on here. It's like a rule of mine. This is not the place for it!

But Jesus Christ. Jesus fucking Christ. (warning: disturbing things in that link!)

I mean if this spreads everywhere and isn't forced out by the ACLU or something, this might substantially change my life because I will not be prepared to fly any longer and my family lives in Australia. I will have to take a boat! Also, anyone who joins the military for any reason other than to get a steady paycheck and benefits would be wasting their effort, because there's nothing to protect anymore.

But this can't go on, right? I mean parents in America aren't going to stand by while some strange man does what is mentioned in the comments to a nine-year-old boy? Right?

I have literally been crying and stuff over this story. Is this a crazy overreaction? Or does anyone else find this really, really bad?

ETA: Seatac and Vancouver both have the porno machines as of October 2010. Looks like we might be DRIVING TO NEW YORK GOD FUCKING DAMNIT IT'S ALL COLD AND STUFF.

ETA2: Some information and options here

ETA3: My collection of links is here.
