Letters to Senate: TSA Cissexism

I felt it necessary to call some attention to the story published yesterday about TSA misconduct towards trans passengers, documented in a story for Al Jazeera America by Alissa Bohling (http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2014/5/26/groin-anomalies-andpatdownstravelingwhiletrans.html Рcontent warning for cissexism and references to misgendering and transphobic harassment).  Identical letters are going out tomorrow to Senators Carper and Rockefeller, along with my two Senators and Representative.  The whole package has been copied to the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and the Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration.

Am I expecting a miracle? No – but at least I can say that I tried, at the very least.
