    What difference does that make? Is it illegal to carry? Besides, if they started throwing it they would just be targeting Republicans. Would that actually concern you?

    Honestly, I wouldn't really care. Like I said, I might think they were weird, but it's a friggin tampon. I have a whole box at home.

    The sex angle can be dismissed as soon as one learns this was a reaction to a specific threat.

    If they stopped someone from walking in there with a bullhorn I would've had the same reaction -- okay, that makes sense.

    Of course it would. It's disgusting no matter who it gets thrown at.

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

    Yeah this was quite the human rights abuse.

    Inconsiderate would be ignoring a specific threat and allowing the proceedings to be disturbed in a planned action.

    Until that wasn't the specific threat. Furthermore, there will be some occasions where enforcement procedures can rely on a "wait until it happens" protocol.
