Sunday December 18, 2016 - TSA, Wish me luck.

I have a day trip to Branson, MO to inspect some timeshare facilities. Its too far to drive from Atlanta, so I have to fly. This is my first flight since starting HRT. I do not fly often and one reason is that I am always flagged for additional screening (pat down).

The guy always pats me down around my chest and shoulder areas. I think it was because of my sports bra Well now I must wear regular bras as my breasts are larger than the last time I flew (over a year ago).

By the time you read this, I will have successfully (I hope) gone through the screening process.

I never liked the screening process and now its worse and I am stressed. I am going in boy mode, so I will be have a pat down by a guy. I just hope they will not make a big deal about it.

Below is the TSA web page to help Transpeople navigate airport screening.

  1. Good luck with your flight. I'm flying in January and am strongly considering flying en-femme even if it means additional scrutiny from TSA.

  2. Although there are always exceptions, most federal agencies/employees go out of their way to be respectful. My best guess is you will sail through. (I should note that I am a lousy guesser.)
