September 11th triggered a weird reaction in the American psyche. The insatiable need to protect ourselves with guns.
But there's a new movement rising up...
Next August, Texans will be allowed to carry concealed weapons on public university campuses. In the wake of a spate of shootings on campus, a new group is planning a unique protest … planning to strap on sex toys in protest of the state’s new campus carry law, which goes into effect August 1, 2016.
Apparently University of Texas students don't like the idea:
Ammoland: The 24-year-old UT alumna added, “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.”
The organizer, Jessica Jin, wrote. The protest organizer, Jessica Jin, said, “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." Jin urges any and everyone to join the cause, "Come one dildo, come all dildos."
Gun rights trolls have been leaving their comments on the "Campus (DILDO) Carry" Facebook page, proving once and for all their amazing maturity. Daily Beast:
Facebook page, do little to quell Claudia Garate, 27, a graduate student at UT Austin’s fears about the law.
“The arguments that are pro-gun carrying...so many are centered around hate, misogyny, and racism. It’s a lot of hate from these people trying to defend this law, and that’s the scariest part. Because on one hand, they say they want to defend people and are obsessed with this idea of being a vigilante. [On the other], the young woman who organized this is receiving death threats.”
Indeed, the sex-toy brigade’s social media has been inundated with abuse. “I’m guessing that the organizer of this event is a huge slut. Should be funny to watch!” wrote Ron Cox, a Facebook commenter from Mississippi.
“I'm going to post all of your pictures on Facebook so your fathers can see how their daughters act at a liberal college,” a Texan named C.W. Cooper wrote.
“Skanks all of them,” a commenter named A.J. Hands wrote. “I think the guys should all walk around with rubber boobs on and crying everywhere, no problems with that huh ladies?”
Garate told The Daily Beast her pals are already talking about buying of burnt orange dildos in support of the campus’s colors. “It’s really telling about our society and the way we glorify violence but then vilify sex and sexuality. How can you be outraged about the idea of people carrying dildos, but not all the people getting gunned down and the violence we see day in and day out? I thought [the protest] was a pretty brilliant move.”
