TSA removes Body Scanners to protect Transgender Privacy
According to Think Progress, The transgendered are singled out after going through Nude Body scanners and it is discriminatory to single people out because they’re appearance does not match their genitalia. The call the removal of Body Scanners a victory.
In what is an important victory for the transgender community, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration has announced it will remove all body scanners that show nearly nude images from airports. The TSA had already removed 76 of the machines and will now remove the remaining 174, though they may still be used in other government offices where privacy is not a concern like it is in airports. Congress had set a deadline for OSI Systems to develop software for the scanners to produce generic passenger images instead of the the nearly nude images, but the company was unable to meet the timeline.
