transgender woman left in tears after being ‘forced to show naked breasts at luton airport and called sir by security’
Lilith Carroll, 34, said the male employee ordered her to take off her bra and make her tremble and grab the exposed chest.
When she traveled from London to Dublin, she turned off the metal detector on her departure.
A male staff member searched her body and, according to Lilith, she followed her breast with her hand, claiming that she was asked for a more invasive examination.
She wrote on Twitter: \"I had a very painful experience before my flight from Luton to Dublin at 20: 05.
The machine that was forced to do the body scan tripped.
Then a guy searched me in the public area and touched my breasts.
She said that when he felt the bra under her top, he asked what was under the bra --
She replied, \"my breasts.
\"Lilith from Dublin was apparently escorted to a separate room and asked by security guards who told her they needed to see what was under her bra.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, she said: \"I can\'t look at his face.
I opened my shirt and showed him the bra.
I think they think I\'m hiding something.
\"He ordered me to take it off, and that\'s what I did, trying to cover my breasts.
\"I feel like I have to comply because I am afraid they will deprive me of my search or detail because I am not cooperating.
\"In addition to pure humiliation, she claims that the guards have always referred to her as a male and that Lilith must continue to correct this. She was miss-
She was repeatedly forced to show her passport because of gender issues to prove that she was a woman.
\"I don\'t think he is aware of the pain he caused,\" she said.
He apologized when he called me, but continued to do so.
He does not admit that I use pronouns to mean that I am a woman.
\"Despite her gender differences, she said she was not asked if she wanted a woman present in the intimate search.
She added: \"I am already anxious about my body being scanned.
I have no physical autonomy.
I don\'t feel like I have any choice and I will be punished if I refuse.
\"I was still crying and shaking after it happened.
I don\'t want to be seen.
I don\'t want to eat.
I don\'t want anyone to look at me or leave my room.
\"I will now look at future flights across the UK with fear.
\"She said she had to be treated to cope with her ordeal.
After sharing her experience on Twitter, she has the sympathy and support of the LGBTQ community.
Others use it to share her anger at her treatment, and other members of the LGBTQ community have expressed their anger and some have sympathized with their own experiences.
A spokesman for London Luton Airport said: \"We are very sorry to hear that Carol MS has experienced pain in passing a mandatory security check.
\"We have apologized directly to her and immediately started an internal investigation.
In the future, we will work closely with the local LGBT community to enhance the training of all security personnel.
