TSA Officer Tells Teen to Cover Up

LOS ANGELES (Dominique Mondon) -- A TSA officer at LAX allegedly told the 15-year-old daughter of Mark Frauenfelder, founder and co-editor of the popular BoingBoing.com, to cover up before boarding her flight.

Frauenfelder says his daughter Sarina was humiliated and shamed when a TSA officer said, "You're only 15, cover yourself!" in a hostile manner at the security checkpoint. The incident left the teenager, who was traveling with a group of friends for a college visit, shaken up.

Frauenfelder believes the officer spoke to his daughter inappropriately in a judgmental, shaming, and sexist way.

Sarina is asking for an apology from the TSA, stating, "If a guy was wearing that they wouldn't get in trouble. I don't think men should treat women like that."

Frauenfelder and his wife met with LAX’s TSA officials, who they believe “are taking this seriously.”
