    Was This Acceptable? [W:110]

    So, the story is going around, you probably have heard about it. Big abortion debate/vote in Texas yesterday, and on fears that some protesters might throw them into the assembly, tampons and pads where being confiscated before people could enter the viewing area.

    Supposedly the Texas legislature heard from somewhere that they might be possibly used to disrupt the proceedings. So my question is, do you find this action justifiable?

    If the rumor was out there that women were going to start pelting the legislature with their tampons and pads? I think they were justified. What's the big deal?

    I don't know if it's acceptable or not, but the symbolism of confiscating feminine hygiene products at a senate debate on abortion was an outright media coup for Pro-Choice: the image that conservative men just want to control women's bodies is driven home rather effectively. The fact that the senate didn't seem to really consider the impact this would have only further establishes a general cluelessness on their part.

    "Absolutely not justifiable, But nothing that the GOP does in Texas surprises me.

    It's going to take a while, but eventually Texas will be a Blue State.

    Reasonable. The state has a vested interest in preventing a legislative hearing from turning into a circus like embarrassment.

    No they should have just closed the viewing area or prohibited women with those thingies from entering. The guy apparently has confiscated more snacks than tampons, so this is this a non-story to begin with. Looks like he has 4 female products, two boxes of snack food and a bottle of water in his box. Are progressive autocrats really so desperate that this is the best they can come up with for their persecution complex?

    By the way, the Clif bars should have been confiscated anyway because they suck.

    Acceptable, yes. But hilarious and ill-considered.

    Based on a rumor? No, not acceptable.

    What's next, taking away things because 'people might....'?

    The Press is saying that the republicans ramming this legislation through will come back on them during the 2014 elections. They're calling it the boom-a-rang tampon law.
