I believe cow is just the singular form of cattle, and they can be male or female. Sometimes cow is used colloquially as a synonym for the female designation of heifer. So I suppose both are correct forms.

To re-cap my own opinion of the topic, the guard did nothing illegal or beyond his authority. But therein lay the real problem. Our rights are checked at the discretion of security and law enforcement personnel as they see fit.
Why do you think there are so many laws out there that no one even knows what they are? And I'm not talking about the old "walking your cow down Main Street on a Sunday" type laws here. But real laws, that are applied everyday, so that the officer can do whatever they want, Constitution be damned. I can guarantee you that even if you think you are a "good law-abiding citizen" I could find something to write you for in a traffic stop. And private security takes that a step further. Guards don't even need any law to find you in violation of. They need no probable cause.
EDIT to add: For me, this issue has zero to do with the word "lesbian." It could have read "baby killer," or "cop killer" or even had a Transformer holding a gun like that guy who was booted out of the airport for such.
