Horrifying child abuse experts, who know that pedophiles try to gain children’s trust by telling them their groping is ‘just a game‘ the Transportation Safety Administration has instructed its front-line agents to tell kids their groping is ‘just a game’ if it’ll make the screening go more quickly.

This opens the door for experienced pedophiles to prey on children who’ve recently traveled, knowing they’ve heard lately from a trusted authority figure, with their parents’ onlooking approval, that groping is ‘just a game.’

Apparently TSA agents are being told that one way to handle the new groping pat downs for children is to try to make it out to be some sort of “game.” This is apparently horrifying some sex abuse experts who point out that a common tactic in abuse cases is to tell the kids that they’re just “playing a game.”

This is the technique known to child abuse experts as ‘grooming:’  . . .

An expert in the fight against child sexual abuse is raising the alarm about a technique the TSA is reportedly using to get children to co-operate with airport pat-downs: calling it a “game”.

Ken Wooden, founder of Child Lures Prevention, says the TSA’s recommendation that children be told the pat-down is a “game” is potentially putting children in danger.

Telling a child that they are engaging in a game is “one of the most common ways” that sexual predators use to convince children to engage in inappropriate contact, Wooden told Raw Story.

Children “don’t have the sophistication” to distinguish between a pat-down carried out by an airport security officer and an assault by a sexual predator, he said.

It’s horrible to think that a child might be more likely to succumb to the entreaties of a molester because that child recently heard the same language from an agent of the government, while traveling with Mommy and Daddy to visit Mickey in Orlando. But it looks like our ignorant and dangerous TSA has gone ahead, once again, without consulting experts.
