“It’s not gay if it’s the TSA”

“It’s not gay if it’s (the) TSA” is a saying that has been printed on many images. Many people believe that the pat-downs of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at airports involve inappropriate touching of private (sexual) body parts.
 
“It’s not gay if it’s the TSA™” was posted on Twitter by boo-orhythmist on November 15, 2010.
 
The word “the” is often eliminated. “@CroweJam It’s not gay if it’s TSA! 😊 Nice cartoon!” was posted on Twitter by “(This space available)” on November 16, 2010. “It’s not gay if it’s TSA” (a person wearing this shirt is shown being searched) was posted on Reddit—Pics on May 16, 2018.
 
         
Wikipedia: Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that has authority over the security of transportation systems within, and connecting to the United States. It was created as a response to the September 11 attacks to improve airport security procedures and consolidate air travel security under a dedicated federal administrative law enforcement agency.
