Texas students begin classes toting dildos to protest new gun law




The University of Texas opened classes in Austin this week with a bit of student protest. The “Cocks Not Glocks” campaign encourages students to carry dildos and sex toys to mock the beginning of a new state law that allows concealed weapons on campus.

From The Guardian:

The new law, passed last year by Texas’s Republican-dominated legislature, came into effect on the 50th anniversary of the [Texas tower] massacre. It permits licensed gun owners aged 21 and older to carry concealed handguns in most places on public university campuses, including dorms and classrooms.

Demonstrators gathered to brandish sex toys in the air or strap them to their backpacks.

“We have crazy laws here but this is by far the craziest, that you can’t bring a dildo on to campus legally but you can bring your gun. We’re just trying to fight absurdity with absurdity,” said Rosie Zander, a 20-year-old history student.

Many Texans choose to attend the tuition-friendly University of Arkansas, where — despite Rep. Charlie Collins’ undying efforts — concealed weapons remain unsanctioned. Dildos? Don’t know.
