Jill Filipovic was never expecting this level of government intrusion … it’s enough to turn a person into an anarchist.

Ms. Filipovic opened her suitcase after arriving in Dublin from Newark, NJ, to find a very personal note attached to a very personal item.

An inspector had uncovered what is euphemistically referred to as an “adult toy,” and decided to note his approval with these 5 words scrawled on an official inspection form: “Get Your Freak on Girl.”
