UPDATE: for the record..there were no jars of urine or feces confiscated at the Texas Statehouse . That is official. It was a rumor.

The urine and feces is not mentioned by any of the participants I have talked to..might possibly be just a good cover story to shift sympathies. Hope it didn't happen..I don't hang with people like that.

Confiscating tampons is hilarious! BUT, I agree with Bridie, take the point too far and no point is made.

They confiscated bottles of urine and unfortunately(but more disgusting), feces, as well....they were taking anything that could be thrown at people...and yes, there were some tacky, disgusting folks who were probably wanting to "show their passion" about the topic and cause a huge scene...and they mess things up for everyone....

Hadn't heard that part Sparkle..if so, wish they would knock it off because stuff like that is just plain nasty and puts people off from joining a positive cause.

Considering that they also confiscated bottles of urine, I am going to hope that these weren't "used" products that were going to be hurled at the folks...I'm sure they weren't but you can never tell what people will do these days to prove a point....SMH....

I'm trying very hard to remember the last time I heard of a critical injury from a flying tampon.

Maybe someone should make a cartridge for tampons that would fit in the gun! HAH!
