TSA spent $18.6 million on ‘non-binary screening systems’

A new report indicates the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has been actively developing a screening system for “non-binary” individuals. The TSA reportedly used a whopping $18.6 million in funding in order to develop, test and deploy the “non-binary screening systems.”

The funding was included in the FY22 Omnibus Appropriations fund; the yearly government spending budget. The money is being used to work with the manufacturer to improve the Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) units in the airport checkpoints.

In doing so, the manufacturer will update the algorithm for “increased accuracy and efficiency.” The equipment will be used for individuals who consider themselves non-binary. “Individuals who feel their gender was incorrectly assumed now have the option to ask for a re-screening before submitting to a physical pat-down” reports Fox News.

TSA’s Executive Director for Travel Engagement Jose Bonilla gave a “woke” explanation in throwing his support behind the machines. “This technology should really be gender-neutral you know it really should be, and we’re there” Bonilla said, hoping the number of complaints from minority communities will be reduced when the systems roll out in January.

Fox News reports:

TSA data shows the agency receives 26,542 screening complaints annually. 6% of those complaints are from members of the LGBTQ community. That number tracks roughly with census data from Gallup, which notes that 7% of people identify as LGBTQ.

TSA began its progressive woke transformation by announcing it would include an “X” as a gender option for people who did not identify as male or female on their identification documents.

The “X” gender option followed suit from Biden’s State Department, which announced it would add “X” to passports after April 11.
