some liquids are more equal than others

I have just read the TSA list of permitted and prohibited items in full.

Toothpaste is out.
Hairgel is out.
‘Topical or rash creams’ are out.
Lip gels are out.
Shampoos and conditioners are out.
Personal lubricants are… just fine.

Personal lubricants were most assuredly NOT on the list when I was travelling just a scant ten days or so before this. I checked the list. I would have noticed that. I would definitely have made a rude joke at the time.

I had no idea the pervert lobby had so much influence with the TSA. (there, better late than never).
