Parkland survivor Cameron Kasky has filled his school-mandated clear backpack with tampons, seemingly in protest of a new regulation seen by many as a violation of privacy.

Kasky tweeted a photo early Tuesday morning:

Administrators at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, decided in the wake of the deadly shooting in February — when 17 people were killed — to require students to carry clear plastic backpacks.

Shortly after the policy was announced by Broward County Superintendent Robert Runcie, student activist David Hogg said he was worried the policy could constitute a violation of his and his peers’ rights.

“There are many, for example, females in our school that when they go through their menstrual cycle, they don’t want people to see their tampons and stuff,” he said in March.

Other students have chimed in on the new policy, too:

The policy was meant to make students feel safer, but all it has done is spark a debate over constitutionally protected privacy — and whether this new measure affords that right.
