My first cat-call/ nonconsensual sexualization was when I was 14, I was at the airport with my dad and my younger siblings and step siblings, about 6 of us all together. As the oldest non-adult, I was helping my dad get the tickets out for the TSA guy to scan before we went through the body scan. We were going through and the TSA guy behind the counter, who was in his 50s, was listing off the ages and names, and stopped at me, saying “You’re fourteen, you don’t look fourteen…” And proceeded to stare at my breasts and my crotch. If me or my dad, (who proceeded to ignore this) had said anything, I probably would have gotten strip searched. It just made me feel so powerless. It was such an abuse of power, and it makes me sick to my stomach to think about. It’s the TSA’s job to protect its people going to other paces, not make them uncomfortable to even go to the airport for months.
