what a bunch of boobs

this is from the TSA's 3-1-1 policy regarding liquids on a plane (click image to make large):

"To ensure the health and welfare of certain air travelers... the following liquids... are permitted through the security checkpoint: ... Items used to augment the body for medical or cosmetic reasons such as ... prosthetic breasts, bras or shells containing gels, saline solution, or other liquids..."
so lemme get this straight: i can't pack a bottle of sunscreen in my suitcase, nor can i bring a bottle of water aboard a plane, but if i stuffed it in my bra for "cosmetic" augmentation of my body, then it's ok? am i alone in thinking that is utterly ridiculous and extremely insulting?

furthermore, if i do decide to bring such breast-enhancing, liquid-enabled technology on my flight, i have to submit myself to thorough inspection and screening.

this is why i'm becoming gradually less inclined to travel.
