Something dubbed #tampongate became the outrage of the day in Austin, Texas, today as abortion rights activists gathered again at the state capitol to protest legislation that would restrict most abortions after 20 weeks and impose more stringent safety standards on clinics. Tales of tampons (and condoms, and glitter, and cereal bars) being confiscated by capitol police started making the rounds, thus making feminine hygiene products the new symbol of the GOP’s war on women.

So, just what do you do with all of those tampons those mean police wouldn’t let you take into the Senate chamber? Here’s a stunning pair of tampon earrings.

Wow, we’re almost convinced that late-term abortion is a great thing. What else do you have?

It’s for the children!

Isn’t it time that comedian Lizz Winstead said “vagina”?
