Students at the University of Texas at Austin are set to protest a new law allowing more guns on campus in a rather novel way.
Their mantra is #CocksNotGlocks, and the idea was coined by Jessica Jin, who also set up the Facebook page and the Campus Dildo Carry event.
Now in case you’ve not clocked on yet, the protest involves taking a dildo to class, instead of a gun.
More than 330 people have currently signed up for the protest, with the ‘Strap In’ planned for the first day of the new term.
The Facebook page says:
You’re carrying a gun to class? Yeah well I’m carrying a HUGE DILDO.
Just about as effective at protecting us from sociopathic shooters, but much safer for recreational play.
ANYBODY can participate in solidarity: alum, non-UT students, people outside of Texas.
Come one dildo, come all dildos.
The protest was created after a shooting at another University in Texas, which was only days after shootings on campus in Oregon and Arizona.
The new law allows licensed gun holders to carry their weapons on campus, in order to be able to defend themselves in the event of a shooting.
