The TSA is well-known for being too aggressive in its body searches, so it shouldnt be surprising in the Obama years that the TSA has a web page titled Transgender Travelers: Special Considerations.
TSA recognizes the concerns members of the transgender community may have with undergoing the security screening process at our Nations airports and is committed to conducting screening in a dignified and respectful manner, they promise.
First, they reasonably suggest that your birth date, name, and gender on your reservation match your government ID (Cisgender oppressors!)
Making Reservations: Secure Flight requires airlines to collect a travelers full name, date of birth, gender and Redress Number (if applicable) to significantly decrease the likelihood of watch list misidentification. Travelers are encouraged to use the same name, gender, and birth date when making the reservation that match the name, gender, and birth date indicated on the government-issued ID that the traveler intends to use during travel.
Then there are those pat-downs that can go wrong:
Packing a Carry-on: All carry-on baggage must go through the screening process. If a traveler has any medical equipment or prosthetics in a carry-on bag, the items will be allowed through the checkpoint after completing the screening process. Travelers may ask that bags be screened in private if a bag must be opened by an officer to resolve an alarm. Travelers should be aware that prosthetics worn under the clothing that alarm a walk through metal detector or appear as an anomaly during Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) screening may result in additional screening, to include a thorough pat-down. Travelers may request a private screening at any time during the security screening process....
Pat-Down: A pat-down may be performed if there is an alarm of the metal detector, if an anomaly is detected using advanced imaging technology, if an officer determines that the traveler is wearing non-form fitting clothing, or on a random basis. If a pat-down is chosen or otherwise necessary, private screening may be requested. Pat-downs are conducted by an officer of the same gender as presented by the individual at the checkpoint. [Notice gender as presented by the individual!]
Prosthetics: Travelers should neither be asked to nor agree to lift, remove, or raise any article of clothing to reveal a prosthetic and should not be asked to remove it.
Then, there are pages for civil rights complaints if the sensitivity isnt spot-on:
Travelers who believe they have experienced discriminatory conduct because of a protected basis may file a concern with TSAs Office of Civil Rights & Liberties, Ombudsman and Traveler Engagement at: Civil Rights for Travelers.
Travelers may also file discrimination concerns with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties at: Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.
It's so much easier for people like me when you can just hop into your own private jumbo jet ... and fly wherever you want ... whenever you want ... paid for by someone else!
TSA should be on the chopping block during President Cruz’ first day in office.
Watch as al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Hezbollah start recruiting hundreds of lady boys.
“First question ma’am...what should I expect to find down there? An inny? Or, an outty.”
“...during President Cruz first day in office.”
President Cruz? Yeah - that does have a nice ring to it.

EPA dissolved by executive order (the same way it was created) first thing in the morning.
TSA can wait until after lunch. :-)
Apparently I know even less about transgendered people than I thought.

Ya know ... there's a lot of strange things going on in the White House these days ... especially when you toss in Reggie and the rest of the rainbow staff.
