Took a minute for the anti-trans Twitterhate to arrive...
...but it was only a minute.
Shadi Petosky (via Twitter)Getting called #freak but they don't understand @katebornstein taught me to LOVE this word.
Shadi Petosky (via Twitter)Conservatives might not realize they're attacking a small business owner and employer from Montana.
Reply from Michael Reid (on Twitter)@shadipetosky u need to be a big business owner for them to care. Try hiking up ur prices 5,000%
(it's a Shkreli Thing, you wouldn't understand).
As for the whackos that claimed she needs Jeebus, and an operation, so they can sleep peacefully at night...
Shadi Petosky (via Twitter)Maybe humans claiming they are going to transition into winged angels and live forever shouldn't be judging anyone's identity.
Shadi responded to the critiques (based on reports) that she explicitly refused TSA's offer to re-scan her using the male procedure (I suppose it's the blue button?)
Shadi Petosky (via Twitter)Anyone reporting that I "refused to use the male setting"' is wrong. I ASKED to be rescanned using whatever settings(,) was told no.
They don't rescan, they pat down. The officer who talked "male scan "!was sent away quickly. He didn't know procedures.
And, shortly after landing back home, she dealt with the people on Twitter complaining that she is Tweeting too much (imagine that!) about her ordeal.
Shadi PetoskyFor those thinking I'm obsessed / spending too much time tweeting. I flew in, recorded 3 VO (Voice Over) actors, and got a filing replaced today. You?
She was eventually clued in to the odd PR tag-team of TSA and American Airlines trying to make it seem (to the public) like they've got this all under control.
Shadi Petosky (via Twitter)Oh sh*t. The spokesperson for American Airlines was formerly the spokesperson for the TSA. Now I get it.
She just arrived back at her original planned destination (Minneapolis) about 5 hours ago. She took Delta, on a connecting flight from Newark.
Shadi Petosky (via Twitter)Lots of people tweeting me about wanting to be a victim. No. This story took off because I won't be a victim. https://twitter.com/shadipetosky
