The Great Grahamsville Tampon Protest

In Grahamsville, N.Y., students are wearing tampons pinned to their shirts, and girls are carrying purses made of tampon boxes. Why? Glad you asked.

Samantha Martin, 14, said she had a small purse with her at Tri-Valley High School in Sullivan County, northwest of New York City, when security guard Mike Bunce called her out of class Sept. 19.

She said Bunce told her she couldn't have a purse unless she was having her period, then asked her whether she was.

(Not even remotely crime-related, just too good not to share ...)
