‘Cocks not Glocks’ turned up on campus at the University of Texas armed with 4500 dildos and sex toys. The student army took the novel approach to protest a new state law. That law allows people to carry guns on campuses.
While the new legislation permits guns on campus, the university considers dildos obscene. Because of that they ban the sex toys.
One of the organisers, Jessica Jin, said the group encouraged people to carry the sex toys. Until the repeal of the law, students should continue to carry dildos.
“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.
