If travelers are given the choice between undergoing the full body scan, or a physical pat-down search, let's all opt for the pat-down. This would increase the physical demands on the TSA screeners. Physically checking the legs and ankles would involve much more bending and squating than they currently do. After a shift of checking hundreds, or thousands of travelers my guess is they'll be pretty tuckered out.
I'd never permit my wife or daughter to be scanned, particularly if the screener at the monitor is male.
