It’s not just full-body scans queers have to fear at the airports — but harassment from TSA officials. After news broke in January about supervisors in an air marshal field office in Florida playing a Jeopardy-style game with gays and blacks, Homeland Security investigators are getting around to paying these offices a visit. (The Inspector General reportedly began informal investigations into allegations in October.)
I’m hoping, at the very least, Homeland Security will at least be able to reveal the rules of how this game was played? Do “Pickle Smokers” get you a higher score than “Creatures”? What about a black lesbian (or “our gang / creature,” in TSA parlance); is that worth double?
