I hate the TSA. It’s security theater; a black woman is extremely unlikely to be hiding explosives or contraband in her hair, and black transmasculine people like myself are extremely unlikely to be hiding such things under our shirts. Yet we both set off alarms and get felt up disproportionately for having “anomalous” bodies.
