Is Security a Risk to Flight Safety? (moved to Jet Blast)

Do you get harassed, groped, humiliated and degraded just minutes before flying a 80 tonne airliner, responsible 100's of passengers lives...

How come flight crew are treated the same as passengers? When they already have an Airside pass? Is that right? Do you have to take this? Does every pilot experience this at some point? Will it ever change? Is it a safety risk when we get harassed and ridiculed publicly in some airports and get scowled and looked down upon by the security staff and treated with no politeness or respect. Surely the current system is ridiculous and unnecessary?

(I can't take credit for the image but I thought it highlighted an issue that I can't believe pilots put up with)
