Link Is it really so much worse when a woman is patted down compared to a man? Really, in the supposed age of equality, why is it ok for men to be patted down and not women? The feminist movement continues to push for womens rights, which is not a bad thing. But if there is no thought given to achieving a balance between the sexes will this not eventually lead to some problems somewhere down the line? I am glad that the NYT have brought this issue to the forefront, but have they considered that men may not like it other but have accepted that for them it makes little difference as they are expected to deal with it and move on? I don't like being patted down either, just my breasts aren't capable of delivering milk doesn't mean that I don't mind them being fondled by another man. What gives?
