Warren: ‘Trans and Non-Binary People Shouldn’t Have to Face Invasive…Screening to Travel’
The situation here is that the transgender was required to be patted down by a male instead of a female and their feelings were hurt. 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has lost it!

On Tuesday, the presidential candidate tweeted that “Trans and non-binary people shouldn’t have to face invasive and dehumanizing screenings to travel. We must do better—and I’ll keep working to ensure that every trans and non-binary American is able to live without fear or discrimination.”

How about the rest of us that go through screening. If you are looking to remove it from them, why not straight Americans who feel invaded or humiliated?

ProPublica published an article following an investigative report regarding airport screenings that some transgender people are subjected to by the TSA when they attempt to board flights.

The ProPublica story that Warren linked to carried the headline, “When Transgender Travelers Walk Into Scanners, Invasive Searches Sometimes Wait on the Other Side.”

When she stepped out, a female Transportation Security Administration officer approached. On the scanner’s screen was an outline of a human body with the groin highlighted. The officer told Olivia that because of something the scanner had detected, a pat-down would be necessary.

As a transgender woman, Olivia, 36, had faced additional TSA scrutiny before. On those occasions, a manual search at the checkpoint had been enough to assure TSA officers that there wasn’t a weapon or explosive hidden in her undergarments.

This encounter with the TSA went very differently.

After patting down Olivia and testing her hands for explosive residue, the officer said that she still couldn’t clear Olivia to board her flight and that a further search would be required.

Olivia was led to a private room where, she said, the officer patted her down again, running her hands down Olivia’s legs and over her groin.

“I told her: ‘If the issue is what you are feeling, let me tell you what this is. It is my penis,’” said Olivia, who agreed to be interviewed only if she were identified by her middle name because she fears people will treat her differently if they know she is transgender [ProPublica]

The situation here is that the transgender was required to be patted down by a male instead of a female and their feelings were hurt.

Seriously? When and where do we stop bending and twisting things for the 1/2 of 1% of people out there? The truth is that the entire TSA program is an invasion of privacy. For some more than others, all in the name of a false sense of security. Giving a pass just because some claims they are transgender is crazy.
