Social media outrage over TSA allegedly detaining transgender passenger

- Shadi Petosky, a transwoman, was apparently held by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for what she claims was the “anomaly” of having a penis on September 21. People have since rallied to her support on social media.

They have also taken to Twitter to express their outrage at the TSA.

One man tweeted, “Dear TSA: in no way are genitals or gender identity a security issue. Your behavior is reprehensible and inexcusable.”

Another wrote, “Really hope the @TSA has to answer for how they’re treating @shadipetosky right now.”

A compiled list of social media reactions are below.
