AUGUST 24, 2016
Starting on the first day of Long Session classes on August 24, 2016, we are strapping gigantic swinging dildos to our backpacks in protest of campus carry.
"On June 1, 2015, Gov. Greg Abbott signed S.B. 11, also known as the "campus carry" law. S.B. 11 provides that license holders may carry a concealed handgun throughout university campuses, starting Aug. 1, 2016. The law gives public universities some discretion to regulate campus carry."
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.
From UT Rules:
"Subchapter 13–200. Prohibited Expression, Sec. 13–201. Obscenity
No person or organization will distribute or display on the campus any writing or visual image, or engage in any public performance, that is obscene. A writing, image, or performance is “obscene” if it is obscene as defined in Texas Penal Code, Section 43.21 or successor provisions, and is within the constitutional definition of obscenity as set forth in decisions of the United States Supreme Court."
Anybody can participate in solidarity: alum, non-UT students, people outside of Texas. Come one dildo, come all dildos. "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!
