The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is pouring millions of taxpayer dollars to support the Woke Left’s agenda.
TSA is directing $18.6 million to create “non-binary screening systems” which intend to help transgender individuals feel more comfortable when passing airport security.
The nearly $19 million in funding came from the Biden administration’s FY22 Omnibus Appropriations fund. The new screening systems will be installed and running in airports by January 2023.
TSA executive director of travel engagement Jose Bonilla said TSA needed new technology that was “gender neutral.”
“This technology should really be gender-neutral, you know, it really should be – and we’re there,” Bonilla said of the new systems.
“The way that we’ve operated the system is specifically based on blue button if the individual is perceived by the officer to be male, pink button if the individual is perceived by our officer to be female,” Bonilla added.
According to TSA data, 6% of complaints received annually come from LGBT-affiliated individuals. Gallup census data has shown only 7% of the population identifies to be a part of the LGBT community. This statistic brings into question whether the million-dollar woke project was truly necessary.
The TSA called this measure necessary to “advance civil rights” of LGBT members. “This new, more accurate technology will also advance civil rights and improve the customer experience of travelers who previously have been required to undergo additional screening due to alarms in sensitive areas,” the TSA said in a statement.
