Flying Trans: Airport Security and the Genderbent Body

Flying home for the holidays? Check out this article posted on the XX Boy tumblr page about new TSA security policies and what they mean for transgender and genderqueer travelers. As if invasive pat-downs weren't enough, advanced imaging technology (also known as "nude body scanners") lets airport security get up close and personal with what gender-variant folks are binding, tucking, or strapping on. This article seriously freaked me out, but the blogger offers some great words of advice on how to deal with security as a genderbender.
