A student army at the University Of Texas has taken a novel approach to protest a new state law that allows people to carry guns on campuses.
The group, known as “Cocks not Glocks”, turned up on campus armed with 4500 dildos and sex toys.
While the new legislation permits guns on campus, dildos are considered obscene and banned.
One of the organisers, Jessica Jin, said people were encouraged to carry the sex toys with them until the law is repealed.
“Everybody’s made a dick joke on the internet before, and you never think anything’s going to come of it,” she said.
“Dildos are considered an obscenity on campus, and thus technically prohibited, while firearms will now be permitted.
“Why isn’t a gun an obscenity? So I created a Facebook event thinking that I’d just point it out to some of my friends and make them laugh by inviting them to this satirical protest that I wasn’t planning on having, and it blew up overnight.
“This is a long-term play and people are going to start talking about gun culture differently, and looking at it differently, and maybe laughing at it a little more,” Jin said.
