See What Happened To Anna Turaeva, Russian Female Powerlifter At The Airport – Photos
Anna Turaeva, a champion powerlifter from Russia, recently shared a shocking story of how she was stopped by airport security and asked private questions to prove that she really was a woman.
“At the checkpoint they refused to let me pass through saying that it was written in my passport that I am a woman,” Anna Turaeva posted. “It was humiliating, I was reprimanded like a child in front of people in the queue.
I was asked intimate questions. They were interested in who I am in my life and in bed. The whole queue was watching this anarchy, and I felt as helpless as possible in this situation.”
Anna said that she quietly and politely tried to explain that she was indeed a woman, and that after a lot of back and forth, she was finally allowed to board the airplane. However, the powerlifter later hit back at the airline, Utair, posting on her social media that the way she was treated was wrong.
“I have worked all my youth with my blood and sweat for my country, not to be treated this way,” the athlete wrote.
Utair was quick to issue a public apology to Turaeva, admitting that “such service is unacceptable”, but the PR damage had already been done.
Anna Turaeva’s masculine appearance had long attracted people’s attention, especially as photos of her wearing manly clothes started spreading on the internet, but she probably hadn’t faced this kind of public humiliation before.
