Melissa Harris-Perry Wears Tampon Earrings on MSNBC

The Texas Legislature better watch out.

From Mediaite:

On her MSNBC show Sunday morning, Melissa Harris-Perry brought attention to Texas’ recently-passed abortion regulations–and the burnt orange-clad demonstrators who had fought their passage–in her own way: with a pair of homemade tampon earrings.

"My producer Lorena made for me last week some tampon earrings," Harris-Perry said as she put on the jewelry. "The Texas state legislature said that you couldn’t bring tampons in, when these women were going to, in fact, stand up for their own reproductive rights."

Some folks on Twitter weren’t impressed. But it’s safe to say that Harris-Perry made her point.
