Transgender woman posts sobbing selfie in bathroom after claiming TSA agent punched her testicles
A transgender woman has called for the dismantling of airport TSA screenings after she claimed an agent punched her in the testicles and ‘yelled at me for having a penis’.
The flyer posted a since-deleted selfie showing her sobbing in a bathroom stall following the episode, complaining that her ‘balls still hurt so bad’.
After being ‘humiliated’ in the airport safety check line, she claimed the female agent then followed her into the women’s bathroom and discussed the interaction with a co-worker while she wept behind a stall.
After the accusations were posted to social media, the airport said they were investigating the incident.
‘We apologize again for your experience,’ it said in response on Twitter. ‘Your comments have been noted and shared.’
The transgender flyer’s decision to rush to the airport stall, and accusation that the TSA agent took issue with it, comes over seven years after New York passed a law to allow a person of any gender to use any bathroom of their choosing.
Similar laws are also in effect in several other states, including North Carolina, California and Nevada.
A law passed in 2021 also saw Americans allowed to legally change their gender on their passports, without the need for medical documents.
