Transgender woman says TSA detained, humiliated her over body 'anomaly

Maybe they should have these fruitcakes declare something like "I'm A Plus + Or I'm A Minus -" as they go through security so as not to confuse TSA. :roll2::roll2::roll2:

    I don't think the TSA is confused, I think they like the suspense before the discovery.

    Ok.
    You LOOK like a chick.
    You have a MANS name.
    Your junk shows up on the scanner.
    Chicks don't have junk.

    They should damn well detain you, you stupid freak. What the hell do you expect? I'm not a huge fan of the TSA, but they were 100% correct this time.

    I thought humiliation was the goal...? :uhm:

    Oh, I get it...it's like the woman who wears a top that shows 4 inches of cleavage and then is offended when you look at it. (Hey! I'm up here!)

    The main problem is that it isnt called "Dude looks like a lady" it is being called "transgender" and for some unknown reason expected to have extra rights.

    It's really simple. There are two sexes determined by chromosomes. XX is female and XY is male. Doesn't matter what you WANT to be, doesn't matter what you have sewn on or hacked off, you will ALWAYS be what the chromosomes you carry say you are. If someone is confused about that then they have a problem with no solution. And if it causes them problems in everyday life, then they need to learn to deal with it instead of whining about it like a spoiled brat.

    If one's truly transgender, how do they know what sex they are?

    I wish y'all would quit calling our sex organs Junk. That's gross.

    But anyway, that's just a pet peeve of mine.

    See, even machines know better than most people. Women are women and men are men, and however God made you is the way you were meant to be.

    It's funny (odd funny, not ha ha funny) how the single use of a slang word can change or add to the meaning of a word. I had never heard the male genitalia referred to as "junk" before the video of the TSA pat down was aired on national TV. Now, it seems to be common to use the word "junk" to refer to man parts.

    Sorry, Snake, but I think the term is acceptable and will probably continue to use it this way.

    It's too bad Sam isn't here to further explain and expound on this phenomena.

    They're called hermaphrodites or in some case tri-chromosonal. It's my understanding that most of the cases are XYY. Though in reading, it seems they're trying to replace the term "hermaphrodite" with "intersexual" :uhm:

    In their case, it adds a whole new meaning to telling them to go ____ themselves :yikes: :vomit:

    This.

    I don't consider myself transgender by any means, just a guy with an unusual fashion sense. Zorba's first rule of being weird is to have a sense of humor. Most of the time, I go through security - Orlando so frequently that TSA recognizes me - without problem. Of course, the beard is a clue - I didn't realize the scanners had gender settings. Once in a while they'll want to do a leg pat-down through my skirt, and have me pose my legs in different postures. No problem - I usually tell them that I'm "G-rated underneath, just lift the skirt and look. It'll save us both time." That's about when they tell me that "You can move along now, Sir." :rotflmao:

    Concerning the guy in the OP? Well, sucks to be him. Cry me a river "cupcake" :fiddle:

    I think it may be an 'old man' thing. :devil:

    noun:
    junk

    informal

    old or discarded articles that are considered useless or of little value.

    "the cellars are full of junk"

    synonyms: useless things, discarded things, rubbish, clutter, stuff, odds and ends, bits and pieces, bric-a-brac, oddments, flotsam and jetsam, white elephants;

    Well, they also use the work Junk to talk about women as in "Too much Junk in her trunk......"

    I first heard the term about 10 years ago or so, and its pretty prevalent nowadays. I think that horse has left the barn...

    I wasn't there so can only guess but if they kept her that long it wasn't because she/he was transgender but because he/she was being a pita. Some of the people on here seem to think tsa employees enjoy patting down passengers and I can tell you that it is their least favorite part of the job. I can understand you not liking tsa or think the rules are stupid but the employees are just trying to do what they are told to do and dealing with a lot of people who don't like them.

    Only guesswork, but it's a safe bet, especially considering the friend's admission that this isn't the first time that 'surprise' junk has been an issue.

    "transgender" are not herms or double-junked as the case might be, it isnt medical. They are the guys who take this to heart. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL7n5mEmXJo
