EDMONTON, July 3, 2013 ( – A male ‘transgender’ activist was arrested in Edmonton last week after baring his surgically-constructed breasts in a mid-air striptease on a WestJet flight.

Nina Arsenault and Lexi Sanfino, who are “transgender artists” in Toronto, say Sanfino’s topless walk down the aisle was aimed at shocking a female flight attendant who had called them “guys.”

“She came over and said, ‘You guys have to teach us how to do our makeup,’” Arsenault told the Toronto Star. “And then they were like, ‘You know, because you used to be guys, right?’”

That was when Sanfino decided to walk topless through the plane.

“[Sanfino] walked down the aisle with quite a bit of grace and flamboyance and had her arms out,” Arsenault added. “And then the flight attendants came and covered her up, saying ‘Think about the children!’”

When the two de-planed, Alberta RCMP officers were waiting to arrest Sanfino, who was charged with causing a disturbance. Arsenault was also handcuffed after refusing to stop filming the incident, but was released without charges.

When the officers advised them that they may have to be put in a male prison, Sanfino said, according to the Toronto Star, “All I kept thinking is they are threatening me with one hell of a good time.”
