Being transgender is not that as easy as being a male or female. Transgender individuals have to face many difficulties to survive in society. They have to suffer a lot while moving in society, and when it comes to traveling, there are some countries where transgender individuals are still humiliated for being who they are. Who doesn’t want to have a perfect vacation? Of course, everyone does! So do the transgender people, but because of their unique situations, they can’t even travel freely. They have to get ready for so many challenging situations and offensive statements the people pass to them, and very often they have to face many humiliations while traveling.
Tips for traveling:
Being an educated society, it is our responsibility to provide equal traveling conditions as well as life rights so that transgender individuals can live a better life. Some prosthetic experts have made traveling easier for transgender. They introduced a product that solved the problem of all transgender and saved them from body shamming. They call it an FTM packer . If you are transgender, then you should get it if you want to travel around the world. There are some tips that you should follow if you are a transgender person and you want to travel:
• Don’t travel to countries where being transgender is still dangerous. Make a plan for countries where traveling is safe for transgender individuals.
• After deciding the destination, make all the necessary arrangements for the journey.
• Buy an FTM packer to make you safe from any bullying at a public place. It’s ok to pack your FTM packer in a bag and not on your body. If you are not facing any dysphoria, you can carry it in your bag with a card holding the information of the product that is inside your bag.
• While traveling with your packer on your body, you need to know that you will have to go through any of the three methods of identification on airports, which include metal detectors, body scanners, and TSA pat-downs. Usually, being transgender means that the machines get confused, and you will have to go through all three checkpoints. These checkpoint procedures may be unpleasant for you, but they are created to ensure your safety.

TSA agents:

Before starting on a journey, there are some essential things that you need to know about TSA agents. The first thing that you need to understand is that these agents are on the duty of your security; they are solely working to make your journey and stay safe in a country. So you should deal with them calmly. If you have any problems or issues, you can make it clear to them with a respective conversation.
The other thing that you can get the benefit of is that these agents are not allowed to remove any piece of clothing on you that can reveal your prosthetic. They warn you before anything they do, so if you are uncomfortable in any situation, you can tell them. Furthermore, if you want to avoid all these procedures of testing, you can prepare an advanced national ID card with all your information mentioned on it. It will make you pass this pat-down procedure faster and without any embarrassment.
