Foursquare Takes on the TSA With “Baggage Handler” Badge

service will award a badge to anyone who checks in at an airport with words along the lines of “TSA,” “touch,” or “Don’t touch my junk!”

Last week, Loopt announced its intentions to celebrate National Opt-Out Day by rewarding 10 travelers who opt out of body scans in favor of full-body pat-downs (and then check in via Loopt, of course) with a free iPod touch.

National Opt-Out Day is a protest planned by those who are against the TSA’s new security measures, which include full-body scanners (which show passengers fully naked) and invasive pat-downs administered to those who opt out of the scans. It’s scheduled to go down tomorrow — a.k.a. the day before Thanksgiving — when airports are sure to be bustling.

Now it seems Foursquare (foursquare) wants its piece of the parody pie. According to About Foursquare, the unlock text reads: “Looks like you’ve had your baggage handled. Happy Holidays and have a safe flight!”

Despite how adorable (yet kind of sexist — why is it a dude?) this badge is, I can’t help being relieved that I’ll be taking the bus.
