I heard a beautiful story recently of a guy who decided to wear a kilt to travel in while flying as he knew that he would go through some tight security.
When the time came for the 'obligatory' pat down, he informed the TSA guy that he was wearing his kilt in the traditional manner (with nothing on underneath) and that if the TSA guy touched his family jewels then he would consider it sexual assault, he would respond accordingly and would not be held accountable for his triggered reactions.
His story goes, that the TSA guy only got as far as the kilt wearers knees and backed off.
Since hearing that story I have flown twice (here in Australia) wearing a kilt (traditionally) and I have to say that I felt invincible. It was like I had on a suite of armour. I even got through the security check with my silver dagger shaped kilt pin in place.
I have since found that when I am feeling vulnerable, that if I put on one of my kilts, I am able to assume a different mental attitude that seems to be picked up by others and respected. Sure folk point, many smile, a few (the right few) avoid and the safe, fun people want to engage and have a brief conversation.
Just a thought, hope it helps
I endured all my yesterdays. I prevail in all of my todays. I exercise my right to be able to enjoy my tomorrows. I choose not to do it alone.
