Episode 16: TSA Pat-Downs, SheWees, and the Wonders of Pre-boarding–Air Travel for Superfats

Alison covered superfat air travel extensively in her blog post (Read it here!) but we wanted to take an episode to go over some of the most important things to keep in mind when you’re traveling by air. In this episode we talk about how to prepare for your flight, how to get through security, and who to talk to to make your boarding process as  easy as possible. We also talk extensively about what fat people face when going through TSA security screenings and how we can move towards protecting the privacy of everyone (not just fat people) at the airport.

If you have had a TSA pat-down experience that you feel has infringed upon your privacy, please tell your story to the ACLU here: https://action.aclu.org/secure/think-your-rights-have-been-violated-while-traveling-internationally
