    Transgender woman slams TSA's full-body scan flagging an 'anomaly' at Orlando airport

    Shadi Petosky live-tweeted her embarrassing ordeal through a security checkpoint at the Orlando International Airport after an “anomaly" resulted in the transgender woman being taken aside by TSA agents.
    A transgender woman brought thousands of social media followers into her embarrassing experience navigating security at Orlando International Airport — a problem occasionally faced by traveling trans men and women.

    TSA agents flagged Shadi Petosky as she rushed to her flight to Minneapolis Monday night due to an “anomaly” that appeared in her full-body scan calibrated for a woman.

    “That’s my penis,” she bluntly told a male TSA agent, explaining that she was transgender.

    The awkward conversation brought Petosky to tears as additional agents questioned her gender and pulled her aside for a 40-minute pat-down, inspection and explosive material scare that resulted in a missed flight to Minneapolis.

    Dozens of tweets and a handful of tearful selfies documented the television producer’s ordeal, attracting the attention of transgender activists, American Airlines representatives and TSA officials.

    “I’m embarrassed about it,” Petosky told the Daily News from a hotel in Miami.



    The TSA agent reportedly asked Petosky to go back through the scanner under the male calibration, but she refused and then declined to say whether she was a man or a woman.

    “It is just a coincidence that I got a pat down for my genitals, then I had the worst agent and then I tested positive for explosives,” Petosky added.

    She repeatedly asked the TSA agents if they were properly trained with a transgender policy, but heard only one response: “I know what I am doing.”


    I am being held by the TSA in Orlando because of an "anomaly" (my penis)

    — Shadi Petosky (@shadipetosky) September 21, 2015
    TSA agent Bramlet told me to get back in the machine as a man or it was going to be a problem.

    — Shadi Petosky (@shadipetosky) September 21, 2015


    The Transportation Security Administration recommends transgender travelers travel under names and genders reflected on government identification and to request a private screening or speak to a supervisor while trekking through security.

    Those travel tips can be found on TSA’s website, but Petosky says she didn’t think to look before leaving Orlando after a vacation.

    Those tips to prepare trans flyers for airport security are also shared on National Center for Transgender Equality's website.


    I asked TSA agent Bramlet if he had any training in trans issues. He said "I know what I am doing"

    — Shadi Petosky (@shadipetosky) September 21, 2015
    Cop asked me what sex I was. I told him I wasn't going to answer that question. I am complying but come on.

    — Shadi Petosky (@shadipetosky) September 21, 2015


    “Had I gotten there earlier, I may have made my flight, but I wouldn’t have cried less,” Petosky said.

    Officials eventually cleared Petosky to cross the security checkpoint, leaving her to rebook her travel arrangements.

    Petosky’s anguish over airport security left a sour note for the center's executive director, Mara Keisling.

    “We’ve just been very troubled,” Keisling told The News. “Trans people can get caught up in this. More often we hear about trans men having trouble with TSA, but occasionally we hear about trans women.”

    In Petosky’s case, Keisling believes the situation “spiraled out of control with TSA agents just escalating it.”

    .@JennyBoylan TSA takes all potential civil rights violations very seriously. We are looking into the situation now for further information.

    — TSA (@TSA) September 21, 2015


    Transgender men and women are subject to more airport security checks, according to Homeland Security documents obtained by Al Jazeera America in 2014.

    TSA sent a statement to transgender activist Jenny Boylan, who recently appeared on an episode of “I Am Cait,” and acknowledged the agency’s awareness of Petosky’s plight.

    “TSA takes all potential civil rights violations very seriously. We are looking into the situation now for further information,” officials told Boylan late Monday.​

    if they suggested you go through the silly machine as a man then do it
    you get a bit older and wiser(hopefully) and you learn to pick your fights

    the airport is a place you're losing more often than not
    you stand in line-you answer the questions-you play the stupid game that probably ain't doing shit to protect you
    and you get on your flight to wherever you're going


    as for the tsa folks--they're clearly not the brightest fucking bunch
    and then we give them power
    it's a recipe for nonsense

Oh, I know, I'll live tweet the ordeal for the whole world to see!" :uscratch:

    Why do these lunatics believe that THE WORLD is supposed to change for them?

    They represent a tiny fraction of 1% of the population, but all of the rest of us are supposed to give up our lives for them.

    I hate it when people have to ask me if I'm a man or a woman. I just like wearing evening gowns in the Home Depot.

    People in Orlando are really intolerant.

    I was walking in the airport and these guys kept calling me a fag and a homo and I was going to kick their asses, but I just could not run in that miniskirt.

    Good luck suing a government agency. This isn't owned by shareholders who are eager to give you a payday to save face.

    THIS is embarrassing. But walking around all day dressed like a woman isn't.

    Let's see him put his penis where her mouth is...

    Someone should start a fundraiser to help him get surgery to have his penis removed so he will never have to suffer like this again!

    I'm really getting sick of this transgendered thing. It's nothing like the movement for gay rights. Gays aren't denying their gender. Trannies want to use women's bathrooms and locker rooms. They want everyone to treat them as if they were actual women. Problem is, they aren't actual women. They're men. There is nothing they can do about their DNA. Dressing like a woman is a personal choice. A gay man cannot help who he is attracted to, but a tranny doesn't have to cross dress or use a women's bathroom. I don't care what they wear but they cannot expect the public to treat them like something they are not.
