Can I request female airport security personnel? ?

I'm a cisgender woman who does not want to be patted down by a man, if the pat down situation occurs.

    Legally, you can ask, but, you might not get it.  While it is policy to have same gender guards, this is only a recommendation, and not a law. You could legally be patted down by either gender. Generally, however, a woman will do it for you.
