Jill Filipovic claims to have found quite a surprise when she arrived in Ireland. Upon opening up her luggage, she allegedly discovered that the TSA had done an inspection of her luggage. What was disconcerting is that, after finding a sex toy in her luggage, an inspector left a message on the inspection notice saying “GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL”
Filipovic admits that “I also just died laughing in my hotel room” but found it to be an obvious total violation of privacy.
As the article below notes, the TSA appears less interested in actual weapons as opposed to sex toys. A.38-caliber handgun fell out of a duffel bag as a luggage ramp crew was loading it onto an Alaska Airlines flight to Portland, Ore.
If true, it is a pretty serious breach of privacy to send jokes or taunts to passengers based on their personal items. However, what would the damages be in such a case, particularly given the right to inspect and Filipovic’s admission that she found the note funny?
It reminds me of that scene in Fight Club:
