    Which it was, but the miscommunication was that the rumor apparently involved used ​products.

    We still usually run with the assumption that women may need them at any time. There is a level of decorum that should continue to be observed with such products.

    You're right, I chose that word poorly. People were given the choice between their perfectly legal, not-a-physical-threat personal property and their right to observe the workings of their government. Either lose your property or lose your rights. That's why I've been insisting on calling it stealing.

    I'm not minimizing their actions in any way or giving them the benefit of the doubt in any way. I've been very vocally calling them out for what they did all over this thread.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    You aren't paying attention. I said I don't care. They were letting people in with guns. There's no way it's appropriate for them to ban tampons.

    A truly excellent point. You can't just "hold it." When you start bleeding, that's it.

    They were free to put one in before entering the event. I presume one would last through the event.

    Why would you put one in before you needed it?

    So put a tampon in before you enter.

    Are we now claiming that the women involved are children and unable to take care of themselves?

    In case you do, since you cannot carry one unused into the event.

    C'mon, this ain't genius level problem solving.

    This isn't about problem solving, it's about the fact that the practice of taking them was an absurd, immoral overreaction.

    So you don't care about security warnings, avoiding problems or dealing with direct security concerns.

    All you care about is guns? Then go to the gun control subforum and post away.
