That’s easy. A transgendered TSA person.

Transgendered TSA hermaphrodites.

So what’s the point of a “same sex” patdown
if the TSA has a “gay friendly” hiring policy?

Whomever drew the short straw, I presume. “Haha. You’re on tranny detail!!”

Query: I am flying out of San Francisco on my way home. I do not want to be handled, groped, or fondled by a homosexual.

Can I request a heterosexual TSA groper? The thought that a guy is getting any kind of sexual gratification by fondling me is hurl-inducing.

I am going to take the opposite approach. I am going to ask for a female groping.

Actually, the politically correct answer is “Whichever gender the transgendered person wants to do the search,” because in PC land gender is defined by the individual. So, if a person was born Bob and now thinks he’s named Monica, he can request a female TSA agent to handle the junk-touching. I guarantee you that if Bob is pre-op, and the female TSA agent even mentions that there’s male genitalia under his skirt, there will be a lawsuit.

Well, just a question. Why does an obvious vanity need a tag?

So it isn’t gay if a straight guy does it?

What an interesting time we live in.

TSA should simply ask anyone whose gender is not obvious, “Would you prefer a male or female security person to do the screening?”

But what I want to know is, whom does a transgendered **TSA employee** get to search?

I wanted to say I am gay and insist on a female to do the pat down.

But then I remembered that most female TSA agents look like rosie o’donnell.

It implies that hetero is the norm and amounts to discrimination against the norm. If he is to be groped in public, I think the traveller ought to be able to specify the gender of the groper.

And another thing - the same-sex rule is a form of profiling. If we can use profiling to determine the appropriate gender of the groper, why not use it to identify higher-risk passengers. After all, that’s what this mess is all about.
