University Of Texas Students Protesting Texas Law Known As “Campus Carry” By Highlighting What You Can’t Carry: A Harmless Dildo.
Texas law known as S.B. 11, passed by a Republican led legislature and signed into law by the amazing Texas governor Greg Abbott, has went into effect, as of August 1, 2016. 3,500+ students at the University of Texas signed up to carry around dildos on their backpacks in protest of the new law.
Here’s an excerpt from the protest’s #CocksNotGlocks 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.
Anyone 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.
Protest organizer Jessica Lin, has pointed out a Texas law which states that anyone displaying or distributing “obscene” materials (such as a dildo) in public can be issued a $500 fine. A law she thinks is hypocritical:
“The State of Texas has decided that it is not at all obnoxious to allow deadly concealed weapons in classrooms, however it DOES have strict rules about free sexual expression, to protect your innocence.“You would receive a citation for taking a DILDO to class before you would get in trouble for taking a gun to class.
“Heaven forbid the penis.”
