In Things That Shouldn't Need to Be Said...

...but evidently do: [TW for sexual violence] Sexually assaulting Transportation Security Administration screeners who are just carrying out orders, and may themselves be triggered by having to execute enhanced pat-downs, is not the way to protest their employer's invasive security guidelines.

Frankly, it's not the way to protest their employer's invasive security guidelines even if the employee is hirself using the opportunity to grope passengers.

It's just not the way to protest anything at all.

P.S. Jeffrey Goldberg: Kilts aren't yours to appropriate as a device to easily sexually assault people, asshole. I've seen a lot of gross appropriation of Scottish culture in my lifetime (I'm looking at you, Mike Myers), but suggesting that USian men wear kilts specifically for the purpose of sexually assaulting people is absolutely breathtaking.
