    So you think it is okay for people to throw things at other people who don't want to be struck with things as long as those things are not "supposed" to be able to cause harm.....???

    Yes, if it conforms to the "harm priniciple." I think pie throwing is okay, too. But not eggs, shoes or bricks because they can hurt people. Not sure about tomatoes, though. Imo, tampons make a great political statement. I would have loved to have seen those legislators get pelted with tampons.

    What do tampons have to do with abortion anyway?

    So you throw a pie and ruin someone's dry cleaning, costing them money and that is supposed to be no harm?

    Any object that strikes another person who was not willing to have that object strike them is an assault in my eyes, plain and simple....

    I don't give a **** if it doesn't make them bleed, they become a victim and that isn't the type of civil society we live in.

    Protesters like to talk about "Civil Disobedience" launching objects at people is not CIVIL no more than a small child's temper tantrum.

    Is that what you agree with? Protesters throwing childish temper tantrums?

    Oh, yes I have.

    But I can't say they've taken away person hygiene products. Yet.

    I got the impression that {in the previous Legislative session} protesters were throwing 'used' tampons/pads.

    I have no source for that but, I do live in the area and hear/read the rumors.

    That's just crass. There are more mature ways to get the message across.
