Tampons Confiscated as Women Protest in Texas

cq5dam.web.1280.1280You know what happens when women protest restrictions on their rights?

In Egypt they’re harassed and raped.

In Texas their tampons are confiscated.

If you can’t bully women by forcing something into their vaginas, just keep women from putting anything in there, themselves.

That’s right. You can take a gun into the Texas State Capital. But tampons, pads, and condemns are forbidden. Or even diabetic supplies that could save your life. Because pro-lifers just don’t like that sort of thing.

After all, women’s lives and autonomy are far more dangerous than guns.

Any sort of control women have over their bodies and reproductive lives must be stopped by Texas law enforcement! Abortion, contraception, sex ed… and now tampons.

    Texas wants to take our tampons! Sharia Law in Texas

  2. Do you ever worry that some of your States are becoming more and more like countries the US traditionally hates to be compared to? All of these anti-woman laws are worrying.
