Age and Gender discrimination at Kelso Regal Theater

To Whom it may concern:

Tonight I went to see the premier of Gamer at Regal Three Rivers Mall 5 1301 Grade Street Kelso, WA 98626. My evening started out smoothly with my date. When I purchased the ticket I was asked to show my ID to validate my age. I showed her my driver's license and promptly paid. My date younger than myself was not asked to show any ID. I brushed this off at first not taking it to heart.However this brief injustice angered me and planted a seed of resentment. After entering the theater we made our way to a kindly elder man, obviously a manager or owner of sorts, was tearing tickets and guiding guest to their appropriate destinations. The man looked my date up and down and tore his ticket with ease. However one look at me up and down and he asked if I was old enough and wanted to see some ID. I became furious, I raised my voice and asked, "Excuse me! I'm older than he is!" The man's defense was "it is the law to check." Well, it is also against the law to screen based on age and gender. I don't condemn the gentleman for checking ID I rebuke him for his execution and deliberate discrimination of how the job was preformed. I have never been treated badly by this corporation until this very night. I felt violated and humiliated. This disappoints me that any kind of establishment endorses discriminatory behaviors such as these. Discrimination based on gender and age is illegal! I hope you and your future employees keep this in mind when conducting regulations such as these.

You must be ERICA L. Halfpenny from Okla. that lives in a tent next to the creek in the state park and works in the pool room at the bikers bar.

In ten years you will be wishing that old man was around because no one is carding you anymore.

Well 4 years down and I still don't wish to be carded. This clearly is meaningless to you and you missed the point. Profiling is inappropriate and discriminatory. PERIOD.

It's weird- 7 years since I posted about this issue my perspective and resolve is still strong about these issues. Times change and generations fade- I'very learned is worth fighting for for equality.
