A woman in Russia
The 42-year-old Anna is a famous weightlifter in Russia. She has maintained many world records and European records in her sports. She has won 6 world championships and 10 European championships. She is also a bench press world champion and record holder. Now Anna is a weightlifting coach.
Anna's clothes in life are very masculine, and she has shaved her head. It is usually difficult to tell her gender on the outside. There are even rumors of homosexuality. Therefore, she ran into trouble during the registration security check not long ago.
Anna is going to take a Russian UTI flight from St. Petersburg to her hometown of Krasnodar. However, before boarding the plane, Anna security staff was stopped and doubted her gender. Especially when people were asked about private issues such as sexual orientation, Anna felt that she was insulted.
Anna wrote on Instagram: "During the security check, they banned me from passing, saying that my passport says I am a woman, which is a great shame. I was reprimanded like a child in front of the people in line. They asked I have a very private question and want to know what role I play in my sex life. The whole line of people have seen all this and I feel very helpless in this situation. I just want to prove that I am indeed A woman."
Then Anna wrote that she remained calm, "I was not allowed to have any rude behavior, and then a miracle happened-I was allowed to board the plane, I dedicated my entire youth to the motherland... I shed blood and sweat for my country , I should not be treated like this."
At present, Uti Airways has specifically apologized to Anna for this matter, saying: "Such service is unacceptable." Despite this experience, Anna said that she would never change her dress because of the opinions of people around her. Dressing up, she said: "This is just my style, my way of life... I feel very comfortable."
