Recently Texas politicians passed a law that will put the lives of college students in danger on campus across the state.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signing “S.B. 11” into law earlier this year, which “authorizes individuals with a license to carry a concealed handgun on campuses of public institutions of higher education.”
In epic fashion, UT students have decided to fight new legislation with their own weapon of mass destruction: A Dildo.

University of Texas in Austin are strapping “gigantic” dildos to their backpacks. It’s called Cocks Not Glocks.

Organizer Jessica Jin wrote, “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.”
This is truly awesome. Very odd approach by the students, but awesome nonetheless.
I totally see your point @ChiefAlphaGoat. But I think that the seriousness of the gun control issue could maybe be deterred as something of a joke (if that makes sense). The gun control issue get’s lost in the funny dildos. Also, it’s bringing about two discussions instead of one: free sexual expression and gun control are two topics of discourse.
@nicolejb I agree with you, I think the "item" will grab the attention of many to an issue they want to shed light on.. problem will be will people look past that and focus on the gun law.. only time will tell
hahahaha good for the sex shops I guess! I think they kinda missed the point, and yeah I think on the flip side you can definitely start a conversation... not sure it’s the best start to that conversation, but who knows! @ChiefAlphaGoat
@nicolejb Haha yeah the dildos were a poor way to express their dissent as it portrays them as immature, in my opinion. Though on the flip side, it gained a bit of media coverage and was good for publicity and sex shops
I disagree. Rape is a serious threat to female (and in some cases, male) students, and that is a sad truth. Public shootings are common as well. I imagine an opposing view would argue that it just makes it easier for a criminal to get their gun on campus, but in truth I believe it complicates things. How many lives do you think would have been saved in these shootings if a potential victim was armed? How many shooters do you think this will deter? What this does is add another unknown to the situation, making it more difficult to commit these crimes. If you disagree, please explain to me why, I'm open to new points of views on the matter.
