I always opt out of the scanners at the airport for a few simple reasons.
- When you opt out you not only don’t have to go through the naked scanner, you don’t even have to go through the medical detector!
- There’s no mad rush to get your things on the conveyor belt. They’ll have someone come over and move your things for you.
- The TSA agent that checks you out will be the nicest TSA agent you ever deal with. In my experience they’re always very nice. They know you opted out because you’re something of an activist so they want to be super nice and helpful.
- They don’t get a picture of you without your clothes.
- You get a free massage.
