Body scandalous

New security checks at U.S. airports have led some to angry protesters to air more than just their grievances.

With bringing placards through customs impractical, a small but growing group of air passengers have decided to flout regulations and flaunt their bodies – by breaking out into bikinis, Speedos and sexy underwear in protest against stringent new measures.

In LA, Corinne, a female passenger, arrived at the airport wearing only a black coat and bikini.

'It's not that I'm concerned,' she told told local media.

‘It's that I feel like the TSA (Transport Security Administration) is making travellers feel uncomfortable, and I feel like we can have security measures that don't make people feel uncomfortable.

'I don't want to do a body scan, and I'm hoping by wearing a bikini they will see everything they need to see and we can avoid a pat-down, as well.'

In a similar incident, Jimmy, a male passenger in Salt Lake City posted a video of himself on Youtube passing through security dressed only in Speedos.

Only he went one step further by daubing on himself the words ‘Screw big sis’ in body paint.
