Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman took to Twitter, as famous people often do, to complain about treatment she received from the TSA. No, they didn't detain her or get too familiar with a body cavity search. They dissed her biceps:
Lady at TSA: "Gymnast? I recognized u by ur biceps"— Alexandra Raisman (@Aly_Raisman) May 24, 2017
Man at TSA: "I don't see any muscles" & continues 2 stare at me
How rude & uncomfortable
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.— Alexandra Raisman (@Aly_Raisman) May 24, 2017
If u are a man who can't compliment a girls 💪🏻 you are sexist. Get over yourself. Are u kidding me? It's 2017. When will this change?— Alexandra Raisman (@Aly_Raisman) May 24, 2017
He was very rude. Staring at me shaking his head like it couldn't be me because I didn't look "strong enough" to him? Not cool.— Alexandra Raisman (@Aly_Raisman) May 24, 2017
Aly Raisman saying she "works very hard to be healthy and fit" seems like the understatement of the year, but she has a point. There's no reason to put down a young woman who is just walking through your station, TSA guy. Especially because Raisman can do things with her body that most of us will never come close to:
The TSA has reached out to apologize, but she doesn't seem to have responded yet:
Probably because she's out celebrating her birthday!
Most people are celebrating Raisman and her biceps, too:
Though there are a few helpful devil's advocates out there, of course:
No. Next question.
