This is what happens when paranoia overwhelms common sense.

A high school in NY state banned backpacks and bags from the student body. The whole situation reached a critical mass when a security guard pulled a young woman out of class because she had a small purse. He asked her if she was on her period. Way to humiliate teenagers.
The female students were allowed to continue to carry purses ONLY if they were having their period and needed to carry female hygiene supplies. In response the kids have protested by wearing tampax necklaces
, and one young man streaked the school. Some of the male students have also stuck maxi-pads to themselves
in supportof their female classmates.
Nice to see the kids sticking up for each other.
