So glad I'm not flying this holiday season

As if the thought of traveling pregnant with a toddler, or with a toddler and a baby is not intimidating enough on its own, now I’m supposed to choose between putting myself and my small children through a full-body scan with unclear effects or an invasive patdown? I’m
supposed to be content to have a private room with a witness as me and perhaps my children are mawed by security agents? Either my children have to go through radiation and their naked images appear to officers (some have gone as far as to call this child pornography) or go through what could be a disturbing and scary experience (described by one pilot as molestation)? No thanks. I think the TSA can do better. In the meantime, I’m glad to not be flying.

Which option would you choose for yourself and your children?
