It's called "assault," and no, you don't get to throw things.
    If they are actually worried about assault they should be worried about guns. No one has ever been killed or been pistol whipped by a tampon before.

    Just ask Joe the Plumber.
    that is a legitimate concern considering the large amounts of BS the texas legislature puts out on a regular basis. You wouldn't want that stuff piling up, someone might make another texas state constitution.

    How would you feel if a black legislator was speaking and people started throwing hangman's nooses? I bet you would be singing a different tune, then.

    It's all the same thing.

    Did you really say tampons and hangman's nooses are the same thing?

    Women throwing tampons at white, male legislators (which is just conjecture) is the same as someone else throwing nooses at a black speaker? That makes no sense.

I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too.

    Maybe no one should be throwing anything at any legislator or speaker?

    I had my spit wad arsenal taken away from me when I was in school, not because spit wads are dangerous (although it's all fun and game until someone loses an eye ), but because they were a disruption to class.

    I could not care less what side of the argument you are on, the idea of confiscating tampons is rather amusing. Then when you compare that to the fact they were okay with people carrying deadly weapons, it's just absolutely hilarious.

    That I can understand and agree with. It's his analogy I'm not getting.
