Web Pulse: Kilts vs. TSA, Jessica Simpson, Phelps

Here's a look at some of the stories that are popular on Twitter, Google and other news and social media sites.

While the backlash continues to grow over the  TSA's airport screening procedures, suggestions for a grassroots opt-out campaign have taken a decidedly Scottish twist.

"If you're a male, and you want to bollix-up the nonsensical airport security-industrial complex, one way to do so would be to wear a kilt," says one national correspondent for The Atlantic magazine. Things. Just. Might. Get. Dicey.

November is a time for lovers … or is that spring? Who knows, who cares, because everyone on the Web is talking about two epic love stories. First, Jessica Simpson has gotten engaged (ruby ring, y'all!) to former NFL pro Eric Johnson.

And, gold medal swimmer Michael Phelps was seen getting coffee in L.A. with reality star Brittny Gastineau. Please read the last name again. Ms. Gastineau, of the E! show "The Gastineau Girls,” was captured by TMZ sucking on a frothy beverage, jumping into a white SUV with Phelps at the wheel and speeding off. Clearly, “Phelpineau” is going to be the next hot couple to get hitched. WebPulse is calling it now!

What is it with athletes? Do women find them attractive?

    Has anyone considered the consequences this will have on young children and teens who have been told never let a stranger touch you... As a flight attendant I am through security screening three times a day. Is it true muslims are exempt from this screening?

    Anyone with knowledge of history knows that these TSA measures have less to do with their stated purpose and more to do with dehumanizing processes.
