Last summer, Morrissey says that he was groped by a TSA agent at San Francisco International Airport while going through the security process.
He wrote extensively about the incident at the time and has now gone back to his fan site, True to You, to update fans on his experience in dealing with the TSA (or, as he calls it, the Thorough Sexual Assault).
TSA have ignored my official and legal and constitutional complaint. From this we gather that TSA stands for Thorough Sexual Assault. If you are traveling through San Francisco International Airport you must be ready for a full sexual attack by people who claim to have your interests at heart. It is unlikely that ISIS would stoop so low.
The TSA isn’t the only place where the singer isn’t getting respect. He also is the 2015 recipient of the less than prestigious Literary Review Bad Sex award. The “honor” goes to the author who has written what is deemed to be the poorest quality writing about sex.
Morrissey released his first novel, List of the Lost, earlier this year to less than stellar reviews, but London’s Literary Review chose to single out a passage in the book where relay runner Ezra and his girlfriend Eliza “rolled together into one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation.”
List of the Lost is about the devil trying to destroy a relay team.
The award was given on Tuesday in London although it doesn’t appear that Morrissey attended. Don’t worry, though, about his ego being bruised. He is now in the company of such luminaries as Tom Wolfe and Norman Mailer who have also won the award in the past.
