Teen Humiliated by TSA Worker

What does your teen wear at the airport and why does it matter?

That's the question Boing Boing founder Mark Frauenfelder is asking TSA, after his 15-year-old daughter was allegedly "humiliated and shamed" for her outfit by an employee at the Los Angeles International Airport, The Huffington Post reports.

According to the teen's text to her father, she was at the checkpoint where TSA officials check IDs when the worker said, "You're only 15, cover yourself," humiliating the girl in front of her peers.

Although Frauenfelder wasn't accompanying his daughter at the time because she was on a "college tour" with other high schoolers, he believes the comment was a "big deal" because it is the first of what will "unfortunately be many layers of sexism she will encounter in her life."
