    first change since 1929

    old

    new

    wordy isn't necessarily better but in this day and age where language is so poorly understood, maybe its beneficial for the victims.

    it could be a problem for TSA and that alone is a worthy goal.

    First part of the "new" definition:

    "penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object..."

    So it's your opinion the TSA should be doing vaginal and anal probes of every man, woman, and child before allowing them to board a flight?

    Really? o_O

    no, it is that they are not doing that...but yet it was implied that they are...my gf had to get searched not only every time we went on a plane but every other building we went into in DC...never had any issues...

    ^Depends on the airport and the TSA members present. Glad you didn't have any trouble.
