    Umm because you care about the constitution and think that someone staring at a virtual image of you naked is a violation of your reasonable expectation of privacy?

    The terrorists would not hesitate to pack kids underwear with explosives. Its a tough call.

  • I dont' know enough about it to have an opinion. What type of technology is involved? If there is no risk at all, I personally would not have an issue with it. However, if there is radiation or any other potential health risk involved I can see the objection- if you were a frequent flyer you could take on a decent amount of radiation over time if you had a full body x-ray at every single flight, and I can see pregnant women or moms of children having an issue submitting to a non-medical x-ray. However not knowing what technology is used I can't say for sure.
