Glock-blocking. That’s what some are calling the “C*cks, Not Glocks” movement on the UT Austin campus today. In order to protest laws that make it legal to carry concealed guns on campus, some 4500 ‘marital aids’ were handed out to students in a little under 23-minutes. These students are attaching their ‘impetus of protest’ to their backpacks and going to class as normal. D*cks out for Harambe ain’t got NOTHIN’ on these kids!

That’s around 200 dildos per minute, for anyone counting…
The idea of this protest came from the belief that these phalluses are considered obscene, but that carrying guns into class isn’t.
Things I’ve heard today at UT-Austin: “It’s not about the dildos.” “Cocks out.” “It’s interesting to see all the different equipment.”

Some have noted the irony behind the fact that the law protects concealed weapons, while the protesters ‘weapons’ are just a’swayen in the wind…
While many are amused by the protest, others are most definitely not…

Personally, I think it isn’t the ‘size’ of the ‘protest’ that matters, but rather the impact once it’s, ahem, in motion.
