(NEWSER) – University of Texas at Austin students opposed to a new "campus carry" gun law plan to protest with open carry—of sex toys. Organizer Jessica Jin says she finds it absurd that as of next August, license holders will be able to carry weapons inside university buildings while obscenity laws make it illegal to wave a dildo around, the Daily Dot reports.
The Facebook event page for "Campus (DILDO) Carry" says protesters will be "strapping gigantic swinging dildos to our backpacks." So far, more than 3,700 people have signed up for the event, which will be held on the first day of classes next August—and uses the hashtag #CocksNotGlocks. Jin tells the Daily Texant hat guns and sexuality are intertwined and she wants to put the spotlight on what society considers obscene.
