The 21st century reincarnation of “Make Love, Not War” has arrived.

When ’60s protesters were opposing the Vietnam War, they emblazoned the demand for sexual freedom over violence on buttons they wore on their chests. Come next fall, students at the University of Texas Austin will protest concealed handguns on campus by strapping “gigantic swinging dildos” to their backpacks.

“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,” reads the Facebook event created by music student Jessica Jin.

“You would receive a citation for taking a DILDO to class before you would get in trouble for taking a gun to class,” the page, which features the hashtag #CocksNotGlocks, continues. “Heaven forbid the penis.”

As of early Monday, 3,600 students had indicated online that they would participate in the action, alongside nearly 700 who are “maybe” joining in.

The “Campus (DILDO) Carry” event juxtaposes two regulations: the state bill signed this summer that will allow license holders to carry a concealed handgun throughout university campuses (including inside buildings), and the section of the Texas Penal Code which forbids individuals from displaying or distributing obscene materials.

Speaking on the Facebook page, Jin imagines that a just reconciliation of the two laws would look something like this:

“You’re carrying a gun to class? Yeah well I’m carrying a HUGE DILDO.”

OK, folks.  Enough is enough.  Where is the common sense?  Apparently it has left Texas for another state.

I am absolutely against guns on campus, concealed or otherwise, unless the campus is a commuter campus.  Even then, I am not so sure.  18 year olds shouldn’t be carrying handguns.  College students are defined, for the most part, by exceedingly bad judgement and being hot-headed.   Most campuses are loaded with weekend warriors who attempt to drink themselves to death.  (Some succeed)

Apparently some of the students agree with me and are exhibiting the bad judgement proof with their Cocks before Glocks initiative.  I wish them well.

In addition to many college kids being annoying as all Hell, they are also at times, funny and creative.  You might want to check out their Facebook page mentioned in the quote.  Yes, I laughed.

    I’m not that attached to my house. I like it and lived here for a long time but I don’t have emotional attachment to it so this question doesn’t create the scenario for me that you are thinking. My fire insurance policy is up-to-date and there are no such thing as irreplaceable photos anymore. I would feel violated but probably not enough to put me in a homicidal rage. If I had a gun I’d probably threaten them but I hope it would be a bluff.

    I have a general opposition to capital punishment but allow a few exceptions when incarceration would increase violence. Capturing Bin Laden alive, for example, was never a viable option.

    If SCOTUS allows restriction on abortion to stand you can bet that the legal justification will be turned around and used to justify limits on gun owners. I can’t wait for that show!

    1. I was very opposed to capital punishment as a young psych major. I got out of college and discovered what real POSes inhabit this earth and decided it was probably a necessary evil.

      Today, if the death penalty is overturned, and it very well might be, then I guess it just is. There will have to be select prisons for those who would have been executed. No one else should have to be around them.

    “Yep. Neither my life or the life of the burglar is worth even a few years wages and I have at most valuables worth a few weeks wages stored in my house.”

    There is a difference between burglary and home-invasion. A burglar breaks in when he thinks no one is home, takes stuff, and leaves. It’s a whole different crime when the building is occupied. It’s a whole different threat when your wife and kids are present. If it comes down to their lives, or the lives of criminals, guess what?

    Don’t store tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash or illegal drugs in your house and there is a zero percent chance of a home invasion except by the police who will later claim to have made a clerical error. A gun isn’t going to keep you safe against a home invasion by the police.

    If one is involved in illegal activity I can see why having a gun might be important. Safer to just stay out of shady businesses.

    The kid in Great Falls dealing drugs out of a mansion used a gun to shoot a home invader/drug purchaser and then was killed with knives and stomping when he ran out of bullets. Since he was involved in a crime (selling drugs) why did the CA classify the shooting as justified and his death a homicide instead of giving the person he shot a pass on the assault as self defense? Is the likely intent to steal his 100K of drugs and money ranked more criminal than the drug dealing or was this simply bias towards a dead white guy in order to help prosecute a latino gang member?
