C*cks Not Glocks: Univ. of Texas Austin Students Protest Gun Law with Open Dildo Carry

Students at the University of Texas at Austin are carrying around sex toys to protest the law that allows for the carrying of a concealed weapon on campus. UT Austin students organized similar kinds of anti-gun street theater last December.

Why sex toys?

"We are fighting absurdity with absurdity," said Jessica Jin, leader of the protest called "Cocks Not Glocks: Campus (Dildo) Carry," where hundreds of sex toys were given away at the rally on Wednesday that coincided with a return to classes at university's flagship campus.

"Texas has decided it is not all obnoxious or illegal to allow deadly concealed weapons on campus. But walking around with a dildo could land you in trouble," Jin said.

It isn't "all obnoxious or illegal to allow deadly concealed weapons on campus." The real absurdity is that this student doesn't understand a law was passed which means it is, by definition, not illegal to conceal a firearm on campus. These kids need to spend more time in the classroom.

On August 1, a law went into effect that allows properly licensed permit holders aged 21 and older to conceal a firearm on campus. Faculty and students tried to block the law, but to no avail. The reason for blocking the law: "the combination of youth, academic stress, alcohol and firearms could make for a deadly combination," describes Reuters.

By the way, the least stressful time in your life is when you are at college: no rent due, student loans to pay back, mortgages, leaking basement, children to manage, aging parents, or soul-sucking 9 to 5 job to deal with.

The protestors shouted "If you are packing heat, we are packing meat," and handed out sex toys that had been donated by local stores. They were also distributing zip ties so the special anti-gun snowflakes could display their objection to the law.

"It's scary to think that at any moment you could be next to a person carrying a gun. And if they go off their rocker, like a lot of people do in college, it is game over for anyone nearby," said Bianca Montgomery, a second-year student.
