University of Texas students announced a plan to openly carry dildos in response to a new “campus carry” law that takes effect next year.
The Facebook page for the group Campus (DILDO) Carry has since been flooded with abuse, which moderators are leaving in place to show the kind of aggressive hostility open carry zealots display when they find out they’re being mocked.
The group was founded in protest of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R)’s signing of S.B. 11, a so-called “campus carry” law which says “license holders may carry a concealed handgun throughout university campuses, starting Aug. 1, 2016.”
According to the Houston Chronicle, the #CocksNotGlocks protesters intend to openly carry brightly colored sex toys on campus in protest.
“You’re carrying a gun to class?” wrote group founder Jessica Jin on Facebook. “Yeah well I’m carrying a HUGE DILDO. Just about as effective at protecting us from sociopathic shooters, but much safer for recreational play.”
Jin invited like-minded protesters to join the group on Aug. 1, 2016 — the first day of fall semester — for a group “strap in.”
This is literally the best possible response one could have to the rise of guns on campus. Open mocking. Of course that doesn’t mean one or all of them isn’t going to be shot. But what else are you going to do. Waving a giant dildo in the face of a gun nut sounds fantastic. Of course these women are taking all sorts of misogynistic abuse from idiots and gun freaks.
