Some filibuster abortion bills, some march against them, and some wear tampons on their ears.
On her MSNBC show Sunday morning, Melissa Harris-Perry brought attention to Texas recently-passed abortion regulationsand the burnt orange-clad demonstrators who had fought their passagein her own way: with a pair of homemade tampon earrings.
My producer Lorena made for me last week some tampon earrings, Harris-Perry said as she put on the jewelry. The Texas state legislature said that you couldnt bring tampons in, when these women were going to, in fact, stand up for their own reproductive rights.
During a second special session of the Texas legislature, security in the Capitol building briefly banned tampons from the rotunda for fear that the feminine products would be tossed at lawmakers passing the last-minute bill. The earlier protests had been so disruptive that Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst had been unable to call a vote on the bill, resulting in an embarrassing but temporary setback for Texas Republicans, who vowed not to let demonstrators get the better of them again. But Capitol security got a bit overzealous in confiscating tampons from female protestors, a policy they quickly reversed after it garnered national attention.
So just in case that ever happens again, ladies, you can just bring them on your earrings, Harris-Perry said.

Liberals, perpetual adolescents.
pmsnbc is now the gong show
Liberals never stopped doing “cute” stunts like this since sitting in the dean’s office. In 1967. Just a bunch of immature, undisciplined , ill bred, ill mannered, spoiled punks.
Other than that, I have no opinion.
What a pig.
The poster child for the deranged.
So classy. A perfect example of why pigs are kept in pens.
Not worth commenting on!!! This woman and the entire MSNBC lineup of buffoons are of of no concern whatsoever, their viewer ratings are non-existant....on a good day!!! LOL
I would say she was as dumb as a box of rocks, but that might offend boxes of rocks.
“Why didn’t she wear a douche bag instead!”
She needn’t wear one because she is one.
Meh. Idiots abound, and demonstrate it daily.
I’m pretty sure sacks of hammers are owed one too.
This is so disgusting. It reminds me of this scene from “To Sir, With Love”:
Mark Thackeray: [entering classroom and seeing smoke] All you boys, out. Girls stay where you are. Out.
Mark Thackeray: I am sick of your foul language, your crude behavior and your sluttish manner. There are certain things a decent woman keeps private, and only a filthy slut would have done this and those who stood by and encouraged her are just as bad. I don’t care who’s responsible - you’re all to blame. Now, I am going to leave this room for five minutes by which time that disgusting object had better be removed and the windows opened to clear away the stench. If you must play these filthy games, do them in your homes, and not in my classroom!
That was my point. You are what you wear.
Freak should stuff some tampons in her mouth.
