Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman has taken to Twitter to share her experience dealing with a "judgmental" and "sexist" TSA agent.
According to the New York Post, the 22-year-old gymnast was going through security when a female TSA agent asked if she was a gymnast, saying she recognized Raisman by her biceps. A male agent then allegedly inserted himself in the conversation (typical), saying he "didn't see any muscles," while staring at her uncomfortably.
Lady at TSA: "Gymnast? I recognized u by ur biceps"Man at TSA: "I don't see any muscles" & continues 2 stare at meHow rude & uncomfortableMay 24, 2017
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.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.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?May 24, 2017
In response to some followers calling her response "entitled," Raisman had this to say: "I'm not entitled just stating he hurt my feelings,' she tweeted. "He didn't have 2 say anything at all. I'm allowed 2 be upset if someone is mean."
Very fair. Also, it's clapback season.
