It's a start!

Ever since TSA introduced new full body scanners that show extremely details images of fliers' bodies, LOTS of people have been complaining…and it looks like the Transportation Security Administration is finally going to do something about it.

TSA has announced that they'll adjust their full body scanners, so that they'll still show potentially dangerous hidden items, but without showing passengers' "naked" images. They'll use generic images instead.

Here's what TSA Adminstrator John Pistole had to say about it:

WTF TSA?!?!?

This certainly isn't going to help TSA's reputation, which is already not doing great!

Recently, people have been complaining about TSA's new full body scanners, which show extremely detailed images of fliers' bodies.

Now, news of a lawsuit regarding a 2008 incident at Corpus Christi airport has re-emerged, which is bound to lower TSA's popularity even more.

Here's what the lawsuit, filed by the victim of the incident says:

"As the TSA agent was frisking plaintiff, the agent pulled the plaintiff's blouse completely down, exposing plaintiffs' breasts to everyone in the area. As would be expected, plaintiff was extremely embarrassed and humiliated."

And what happened after that? Here's more from the lawsuit:

"One male TSA employee expressed to the plaintiff that he wished he would have been there when she came through the first time and that 'he would just have to watch the video.'"

Ew. That's really creepy, TSA. We are NOT impressed, and we understand why this woman feels the need to pursue legal action.

Will this affect your feelings about TSA as you do holiday traveling over the next month or two?
