In what is oddly the second time this month we're hearing about dildos being used to make a point about guns, students at the University of Texas plan to strap sex toys their backs as part of an upcoming protest.
Some students at the university apparently aren't too pleased with a new law allowing people to carry concealed handguns everywhere on campus.
According to a Facebook page titled Campus (DILDO) Carry:
"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."
Thus the #CocksNotGlocks movement was born.
The protest, which is scheduled for the day that the law goes into effect, has more than 2,000 people who have RSVP'd as "going" in reply to the Facebook invite.
The page says the protest will involve "strapping gigantic swinging dildos to our backpacks in protest of campus carry."
"You're carrying a gun to class? Yeah well I'm carrying a HUGE DILDO."
