I think either a peeping Tom or a devious molester came up with the body "naked" scanner idea and it took a bunch of morons to implemented.
The software could be made to show a stick figure instead of showing the naked body on the screen with warnings if any illegal objects are found.
Just imaging the collection of photos that pervert could have collected.
All this airport security is ridiculous. Even before all of the added security was put in place over the last 10-15 years, you were still 100 times as likely to get killed driving to the airport than on the flight.
Oh noes! The terrorists are killing millions of people every day and planes are falling from the sky crushing my neighbors' houses. Looking outside all I see is fire and chaos and men wearing turbans.

I still question the clarity of these devices. so far the scans haven't showed us anything "desirable" from any standpoint. nor does this security actually catch any explosives or weapons.. I know everyone is going for the "Total Recall" subway scene where you walk in front of a screen and shows your skeleton and a red blinking weapon.... but we are a long long long way from that.

Good point, are these devices used to scan children? This could potentially become a huge issue. Just imagine the employee that has their own catalog of naked child photos taken from work.

As far as I know, children are not scanned in UK (children being people under 18). I remember there being a huge fuss about child porn, and I think they solved it by just imposing an 'over 18' only' rule. No idea what the protocol is in other countries, though.
