Guns and Dildos



dildosTexas has passed a law that will allow people to carry guns on all public college and university campuses. So a group has sprung up at UT-Austin called Campus (Dildo) Carry that plans to have its members carry dildos in their backpacks as they come and go on campus. It seems the university has a rule that outlaws carrying a “visual image associated with obscenity.” Remarked one organizer: “You would receive a citation for taking a dildo to class before you would get in trouble for taking a gun to class.” The agitprop is the brainchild of Jessica Jin, who chose the dildo as the forbidden object for its inherent humor value, but also because of its phallic connection to guns: “They each have the power to masculate or emasculate at a moment’s notice. … Dildos and guns are in it together for the long haul.” For this reason, backpack scanners at UT will now have to get good at recognizing the difference.
