Cocks Not Glocks!



Now here's some open carry I can get behind... er in front of.
A University of Texas at Austin alumna has the latest response to campus carry: dildos.
The protest, organized by Jessica Jin, is called Campus (DILDO) Carry. The protest is scheduled for Aug. 24, 2016, the first day of the 2016 fall semester. It went viral in less than 36 hours with #CocksNotGlocks.
Concealed weapons being allowed in buildings on University of Texas at Austin will take effect on August 1, 2016 — the 50th anniversary of engineering student Charles Whitman's rampage from the campus clocktower in 1966. It was one of the first mass shootings on a school campus in America.
More than 5,000 have RSVP'd to the protest. UT Austin has an enrollment of more than 51,000 students.
Jin told the Houston Chronicle on Monday that she wants the dildos to serve as a "visual representation" of what everyone on campus carrying guns may look like come August.
"I think it has caught on quickly because it resonates with them in a multitude of ways. The gun puns and the humor have been remarkable, but this satirical employment of dildos has also sparked more serious conversations on topics like the perception of safety, the intersection of guns and sexuality, and even campus sexual assault," Jin told the Houston Chronicle on Monday. "Others are simply seeing it as quite a literal fuck you to the people and forces that led us into this divisive nationwide deadlock in the first place. There's a lot of arguing going on, but the consensus is: We're all just trying to not get killed."
All of you who have never seen a John Waters movie should know that a dildo can be just as deadly as a gun in the right hands.
