Nipple rings and airport security. I can see, perhaps, why asking anyone to remove their nipple rings with a pair of pliers is a bit much, but the press release, below, is also complaining that another woman had her breasts inspected because of her nipple rings, suggesting that such an inspection would also be objected to. So, what’s the alternative? We trust people when their chest sets off the metal detector? Terrorists have used their pregnant girlfriends to try to blow up planes. They’ve put kids in a car to disguise the fact that it was about to blow up. People like to laugh about over-inspections at airports, but I don’t laugh anymore. Your thoughts?
Nipple Rings and Airport Security
Woman Forced to Remove her Nipple Rings in Order to Fly
A woman who was forced by TSA security to remove two rings in her pierced
nipples in order to pass security to board a flight will hold a news
conference with her attorney, Gloria Allred, today March 27, 2008 at 12:30
pm at 6300 Wilshire Blvd., #1500, Los Angeles.
The woman was given a pair of pliers in order to remove the rings in her
nipples. The rings had been in her nipples for many years.
Several years ago, another woman, actress Nicole Richie, had her breasts
inspected by security at a different airport because of her nipple rings.
At the news conference Ms. Allred will display two nipple rings on a
mannequin, and explain what she and the woman will do in order to ensure
that no other person is forced to suffer what the woman did in order to
board a plane.
