Our E.D. Hida Viloria discusses how some intersex people are discriminated against by the TSA simply because of the sex characteristics we were born with in he/r latest essay “Fear of Flying–or at Least the TSA–While Intersex.”
We thank The Daily Beast for helping to bring attention to the discrimination intersex people face by publishing this essay!
The essay also examines the similarities transgender people face with the TSA while traveling, and the American College of Pediatrics’ (ACPEDS) pathologization of intersex people and attempt to deny intersex biological reality with binary statements about all humans being male or female, in order to frame transgender people as psychologically disordered.
