Aly Raisman Shows Her Mettle In Blasting Airport Body-Shamer

"It's 2017. When will all this change?"

Aly Raisman, a three-time Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics, just slammed a judge.

And with good reason.

This judge wasn’t officiating a competition. He was a man at airport security apparently making unsolicited negative comments about her body.

It all started when a “lady at TSA” said she could tell from Raisman’s biceps that she was a gymnast, the athlete recounted on Twitter Wednesday. That’s when “a man at TSA” broke into the conversation, rudely proclaiming he didn’t see any muscles and proceeding to stare at her, according to the London and Rio Games hero.

“I am so sick of this judgmental generation,” she wrote.

We’ll let Raisman take it away from here:

Raisman spoke out in January about maintaining a positive body image before she appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

“I of course like everyone else have my days where I feel insecure and not at my best,” she wrote on Instagram with one of her S.I. photos released as a preview. “BUT I think it is that much more important we love our bodies and support each other.”
