My wife and I saw a movie at the Sherwood Regal Cinema earlier tonight. We would have preferred a different theater but it was the only one that showed the movie we wanted to see at a convenient time. We bought our tickets at the booth, and the 17 yr old girl sitting behind the glass tells my wife that she needs to open her purse. So my wife complied, and the girl (from behind the glass) gave a cursory glance inside, without asking my wife to remove or rearrange anything or open it wide enough to see all the way into the bottom. My wife spoke up in a firm but polite voice and asked why it was that SHE was being searched but that none of the MEN were being subjected to similar scrutiny. The response? "Well ma'am, if a man brought a purse in we would ask him to open it also." Wow. Women carry purses. Men don't. Leaving aside the fact that glancing into a purse from inside a ticket booth is a joke that serves no purpose from a safety standpoint ( since I was standing right behind her the entire time carrying a concealed Glock 26) their policy is flat out discriminatory against women. How can people be so stupid as to think that this will do anything to prevent mass shootings? And how can Regal get away with such blatant sexism?
