Texas Students Hold Dildo Protest of Campus Carry

August 25, 2016
 

An unusual protest in the works for months took place Wednesday at the University of Texas at Austin. Students carried dildos, posted photographs of themselves in class with dildos (see above) and announced that they had dildos in their bags -- pointing out that there are provisions of Texas law that could punish them for carrying sex toys -- even as the new campus carry law would not punish them for carrying guns. The Austin American-Statesman reported that one student told a protest crowd, “If there are guns in your bags, there will be dildos in mine …. If you pack heat, we’re packing meat! We’re going to make you as uncomfortable as we are [with guns].”
