Pride Month!!!

Ooh, celebrating the seven deadly sins. I love it! Envy Month, Sloth Month, Gluttony Month, Wrath Month, Greed Month and my favorite, Lust Month! grrrowww!

Wikipedia: The Catholic Church used the concept of the deadly sins in order to help people curb their inclination towards evil before dire consequences and misdeeds could occur; the leader-teachers especially focused on pride (which is thought to be the sin that severs the soul from Grace,[5] and the one that is representative and the very essence of all evil) and greed, both of which are seen as inherently sinful and as underlying all other sins to be prevented

I'm kind of surprised this was an apparent lead news item, but it's an obvious case of discrimination to ask her and no one else for ID.
This whole who uses the bathroom thing strikes me as a bit weird anyway: it's not like it's Roman-style communal defecation, they have individual stalls and lockable doors in there.

The male attendant then enters the ladies after her.

Ooops.

I'm not aware of what the rules are regarding this but I guess the attendant looked at her her and thought "you're a man" therefore you shouldn't be using the female rest room hence why they asked her for ID. I can understand why that would be upsetting but the attendant is just trying to do what they see as their job I guess (the rules may accommodate this but perhaps they never knew). It sounds like it was very badly handled after that which made an awkward situation even worse when some sensitivity could have been applied.

And then she called the cops. She's lucky they didn't shoot her.

I don't understand why all this has become such a charged issue in recent times really. I do struggle to see it as some kind of "human rights abuse".
