I guess they're afraid of being attacked with feminine hygiene products? Poor frightened men. Someone should make them a big cherry pie.
This description of the scene comes from one organizer.
"How things work here. Every bag searched. Orange had all the doors early but somehow the blues get first in line. The front row of every other section in the gallery is blocked off. All extra t-shirts, paper, water medicine tampons etc confiscated and thrown out. About 50 cops in room. Some anti's allowed in back door. If you want to go to bathroom you must get back at end of line which is hundreds of people long. Cops told to hassle us and leave blues alone. This is what GOP Texas Democracy looks like."
