Money quote from Harris-Perry’s “commentary” on the earrings (via Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard – who has video of her explaining the “significance” of the earrings):
MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY: I just have to show these. My producer Lorena made for me last week some tampon earrings because of course you’re remember that the Texas state legislature said that you couldn’t bring tampons in when they were going these women to in fact stand up for their own reproductive rights. You weren’t allowed initially to bring tampons. So, just in case that ever happens again ladies, you can just bring them on your earrings.
Ew, right? Of course, leave to Harris-Perry and other willfully ignorant “feminists” to leave out the context. Other “feminists”, BTW, have taken to wearing coat-hanger earrings at these types of protests. Keep it classy, “ladies.”
Anyway, looking forward to reading your captions for Harris-Perry. Please try to keep it clean – unlike the pro-unborn baby mutilation “feminists” who invaded the Texas legislature a couple of weeks ago.
I’m thinking earrings with mini-versions of a 20 week old aborted fetus would have made much more of a statement…
