KEEP AUSTIN WEIRD: Students Plan Sex Toy Protest Of Their Liberty
A University of Texas-Austin alumnus who doesn’t believe anyone should have the right to bear arms is planning a sex toy protest of campus carry law for the first day of fall semester in 2016.
Jessica Jin, a former music major, was listening to NPR when she came up with the half-cocked scheme:
I was sitting in traffic yesterday listening to a discussion on public radio about the morning’s school shootings. I felt a lot of frustration at those who were still trying to explain-away, or make excuses for this repeated pattern of violence and said to myself, “Man, these people are such dildos.”
I couldn’t believe that people could still sit there and defend their own personal gun ownership while watching families mourn the loss of their children. The dildo concept began as a reaction in jest to this week’s shooting events. One joke led to another, and I did a little research on the rules surrounding dildos in classrooms. When I discovered that it is indeed against UT policy to wave dildos around campus, I just couldn’t help myself.
Jin created a Facebook page touting the event when she discovered that while concealed weapons will soon be legal on campus, the open display of sex toys runs afoul of the University’s obscenity policies.
Curiously, Jin is a first-generation American of Chinese descent, and China’s communist government shares Jin’s disdain for the personal ownership of firearms.
After all, the Chinese government could not have carried out their democide of nearly 77 million people between 1949-1987 if their citizens were armed.
