Full Cellulose Jacket

A brilliant piece of political theatre was enacted yesterday at the Texas legislature which is trying yet again to control the uteri of the state. I'm sure the pro-choice forces would have paid handsomely to demonstrate graphically and ironically how ReThuglicans view women in Texas.

But they didn't have to.
State troopers are confiscating tampons, maxi pads and other potential projectiles from those who are entering the Texas capitol to watch the debate and vote on a controversial anti-abortion bill. Guns, however, which are typically permitted in the state capitol, are still being allowed.
Because, you know, tampons are dangerous.

Of course Twitter exploded. #FamousTamponQuotes is still going strong this morning.

I found this and wonder what the state troopers would have thought of it.

It's a real instructional thingy, with video and all.

I liked this instruction:
Do not use tampons that have been worn. This is unhygienic and the expanded tampons will clog the gun barrel.

The bill passed as expected.

Those tweets say it all, don't they?

Wait until they start taking the used ones to check to see if a woman aborted.
