When Ashley Yang worked for the TSA as an airport screener, they insisted that she cut her hair or wear a “male wig” and would only let her pat down male passengers who regularly sexually harassed her. Originally hired for a two year probationary period, they let her go days before that time expired for continuing to express a female gender identity.
