Cocks Not Glocks: University of Texas at Austin students will be carrying dildos to class to protest new laws allowing people to carry guns on campus.
Jessica Jin, a student at the University of Texas in Austin, set up a Facebook page called “Campus (DILDO) Carry” to promote the protest, scheduled for August, 2016, the same month new laws are set to take effect allowing people to carry weapons on campus.
The new law will allow students and faculty members at public and private universities across Texas to carry concealed handguns in lecture theatres, common rooms and dormitories.
The following is an excerpt from the “Campus (Dildo) Carry” Facebook page:
Starting on the first day of Long Session classes on August 24, 2016, we are strapping gigantic swinging dildos to our backpacks in protest of campus carry.
ANYBODY can participate in solidarity: alum, non-UT students, people outside of Texas. Come one dildo, come all dildos.
“You’re carrying a gun to class? Yeah well I’m carrying a HUGE DILDO.”
Just about as effective at protecting us from sociopathic shooters, but much safer for recreational play.
By carrying dildos to class in the “strap in” protest students will be in violation of the campus’ obscenity policy. Protest organizer Jin believes it is ridiculous that there soon will be more restrictions on sexual expression than there is on carrying lethal firearms at Texas universities.The push-back against open carry is a welcome and humorous response to the perverse gun culture infecting much of the United States.
As a nation we live with and tolerate a culture of gun violence. All the while any proposal to enact sensible reform to curb gun violence is squashed by the the NRA and the multitude of ammosexuals in love with their guns.
Bottom line: America has a fetish for guns, and that perverse fetish for guns is exemplified by open carry laws like those being enacted in Texas. It seems only fitting that dildos be engaged in the fight against such perversion.
