Mary Looper says that she was treated unfairly during a Carrie Underwood concert.

A lesbian woman reports that she was escorted out of the Staples Center's women's bathroom because security believed she was a man.

Mary Looper, who was attending a Carrie Underwood concert with her aunt at the Los Angeles venue on Sept. 15, posted about the hurtful turn of events on her Facebook page.
