- A transgender woman claimed a TSA agent slapped her testicles and yelled at me for having a penis.
- She called for the abolition of TSA airport screenings and “education” of the agent in response to the episode
- In 2021, another transgender flyer criticized “transphobic” TSA screenings and called for them to “remove the gender settings from their scanners”
A transgender woman has called for the dismantling of TSA screenings at airports after claiming an officer 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 restroom cubicle after the episode, complaining that her “balls still hurt so bad.”
“I don’t want the TSA agent who hurt me fired,” she said in a separate post. “I want her educated and the whole TSA abolished altogether.”
After being “humiliated” in line for airport security, she claimed the female officer followed her into the women’s bathroom and discussed interacting with a colleague as she cried behind a booth.
She has since posted deleted selfies showing her sobbing in a bathroom cubicle after the incident, later calling for the abolition of TSA airport screenings in response

After the allegations were posted on social media, the airport said they were investigating the incident.
“We apologize again for your experience,” the tweet read. “Your comments have been noted and shared.”
The transgender flyer’s decision to rush to the airport cubicle, and the accusation that the TSA agent disagreed, comes more than seven years after New York passed a law allowing a person of any gender to use any bathroom of their choice. to use.
Similar laws are also in effect in several other states, including North Carolina, California, and Nevada.
A law passed in 2021 also allowed Americans to legally change their gender on their passports, without the need for medical documents.
That same year, however, another TSA spat erupted when a transgender woman lashed out at screenings for being “transphobic” after an “abnormality” was discovered between her legs that “set off the alarm.”
As Rosalynne Montoya walked through security, a TSA officer reportedly pressed a button that identified her as a woman — setting off the alarm as she walked through the body scanner.
Can we talk about how horrible it is sometimes to travel while being transgender? I always have a huge fear of going through security,” she explained.
After being flagged by the security system, she called on the TSA to “remove the gender settings from their scanners” to accommodate trans people.
Debates over transgender issues have become a hot button issue in recent years, including whether athletes who have gone through male puberty and later transitioned should be allowed to compete in women’s sports.
Last week, a transgender cyclist took first place in a top women’s cycling race in New York City, when 46-year-old Tiffany Thomas blew the competition out of the water.
But the victory came just weeks after former cycling champion Hannah Arensman retired from the sport entirely after missing out on a podium finish to a trans cyclist.
Recent incidents such as this led to World Athletics banning all transgender athletes from competing after numerous female athletes and coaches warned officials that there was “no way” to reverse their natural physical advantage.
