They Called It Rapiscan

It isn't the biggest issue in the world, but the Rapiscan was one of those things where Very Serious People were on board and dirty hippies were like uh, maybe this isn't such a good thing.

The TSA plans to remove 174 Rapiscan machines from U.S. airports, with the company absorbing the cost, according to TSA officials. The machines will be replaced by L-3 scanners.

Can blast naked pictures of me through the whole airport for all I care (though I imagine not everybody would be thrilled), but lots of people understandably aren't thrilled by random people looking at their naked bits.
