Aly Raisman Will Not Have Her Body Judged by a TSA Agent, Thank You Very Much
Three-time Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman just called out an obnoxious man who thought it was appropriate to comment on her body.
I know what you’re thinking: A man providing unsolicited opinions on a woman’s body is hardly news, and unfortunately, that’s very true. But Raisman handled the situation like the professional she is, blasting this attitude toward women.
Here’s what went down: While passing through airport security, a female TSA agent said she could tell Raisman was a gymnast because of her biceps. Naturally, this was when her male colleague thought it was appropriate to chime in adding his two cents, saying that he didn’t see any muscles and then proceeding to stare at her, shaking his head because she didn’t look “strong enough” to him.
Oh, hell NOPE.
“I work very hard to be healthy & fit. The fact that a man thinks he judge my arms pisses me off I am so sick of this judgmental generation,” Raisman said on Twitter. “It's 2017. When will this change?”
Going through airport security is invasive enough without having your body and occupation scrutinized by a random dude with an X-ray machine.
