Recent experiences with TSA? Patdowns vs. scanners?
I checked and the last question on this topic was started in 2010.
For those who have recently traveled by plane in the U.S., what have your experiences been with the “enhanced pat downs” and/or body scanners at the security checkpoint? Which do you opt for when given the choice, and why?
I’m going to be traveling very soon, for the first time in years, and I am pretty anxious. I am transgendered; my anatomy does not correspond to either what one would expect based on my appearance, or my gender marker on my passport, and I fear this might earn me extra scrutiny or harassment.
