    Those points are dropped and will not resurface. Soon, the dumb crap about 'if we let guns in, then we cannot take ANY security measures" is equally (or more) flawed.

    Your "points" exist only in your mind and they are not worthy of any defense.

    So you're not complaining about confiscating jars of urine or feces? Why not? What if the folks carrying those had legit reasons too, like they were going to drop them off at a medical lab for testing.

    If so, there was a miss-communication. That does not turn the event into an exercise in oppressing women.

I might think they were a little weird and wonder what exactly they think I'm going to do with my tampon, but that's about the extent of the outrage for me.
    Absolutely. If there's some rumor about tampon-throwing, and as a result you have to give up your tampon in order to view the workings of your government (as is your right, nobody should be able to take that away), you are being punished for something someone else supposedly planned to do.

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

    So if they suck so much, why do you keep talking about them? Why do they keep drawing your attention?

    I don't believe it's appropriate to bring biological waste in to watch a legislative session. Honestly, I don't think there are many places where it's appropriate to bring biological waste. If you can offer a legitimate reason for bringing it to the capitol building, I'm all ears.

    It did not necessarily equal oppressing women, but the net impact was that it sent the signal that you could not dismiss the sex angle at all.

    This is nowhere near the same thing, and the appropriate response was to wait until people actually broke the law and then punish them. This way punishes everyone with a presumption of guilt.
    I know you want to believe this happened in a vacuum and that the authorities didn't have any information and were just being mean and targeting people you agree with but I seriously doubt that was the case.

    I don't think they were doing it to be dicks. I just think they were inconsiderate jackasses who penalized everyone for the rumored plans of who knows how many or few people.
