Gizmodo, Drudge Report Post Fake Full Body Scan 'TSA Porn'

These TSA porn photos would be alarming

So yeah…. the image that Drudge Report and Gizmodo linked was hot and made TSA images seem like they could be hot. But most images look like this. Not hot.

There are certainly reasons to be concerned about these scanners, including how horrifically expensive they are. But these photos were misleading and not reflective of what can actually be done with TSA porn.

Neither Gizmodo nor Drudge have acknowledged that the photos they posted were fake, though Gizmodo commenters have pointed it out.
What, drudge posted a fake photo to stir up controversy? Color me surprised.

And since when are nude photos 'porn' - I thought for sure that to be 'porn' it had to be bumping uglies - at least.

No sex/just posing = Softcore, Sex = Harcore
How on earth is a naked body *any* porn? Softcore?
She's just standing there.

In many arenas a similar image would be considered nothing but *art* :shrug:

We (American's) are such uptight prudes, it is pathetic.

Or sex.
Many value personal-privacy and personal-decency . . . but the majority are entertained by the absence of both so long as it's not *us*

We're not easy to label - what bothers 50% doesn't bother the other 50% . . . or those who are bothered the most might make up a small % - but they yell the loudest so they're heard over everyone else.

For it to be bumping uglies, I believe Helen Thomas would have to be involved. :mrgreen:
