'Bikini Girl' strips again in protest of full bodied scanner
London, Nov 25 (ANI): Corinne Theile, the Californian holidaymaker who had famously stripped down to her bikini at Los Angeles International Airport in protest of 'invasive' security screening a year earlier, has stripped again.
Corinne, dubbed the 'Bikini Girl' has worn her swimsuit on seven flights over the past 12 months in dispute of TSA full body scanners, as she believes the X-rays release low levels of radiation and is an invasion of privacy.
The 32-year-old returned to the airport in a two-piece once more and declared that she'll continue to do so even when she's 80.
"If I'm 80 and I can go through security in a bikini, I'll do it," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
Instead of using TSA (Transportation Security Administration) security checks, which include the use of backscatter X-ray and millimetre wave detection, Corinne prefers wearing her bikini so security officers can see she has nothing to hide.
"I feel like the TSA is making travellers feel uncomfortable, and I feel like we can have security measures that don't make people feel uncomfortable," she had said last November.
"Every time I go through security I always say, 'I don't even know why I got dressed this morning.' I end up taking off belts, jewellery and everything else off anyway.
"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," she had added. (ANI)
