A new law that allows people to carry concealed handguns into most buildings on public college campuses takes effect today in Texas, and students are planning to protest by bringing some equally inappropriate — but much less lethal — objects into their classrooms: dildos.
Jin's group is organizing a demonstration called "Campus Dildo Carry" on August 24, the first day of fall semester classes at the state's flagship public university, that she says will involve students carrying "a few thousand non-phallic sex toys to accurately reflect the 'concealed carry' aspect of this law, [and] about 500 very dick-like toys too."
Jin says the protesters will strap dildos to the outside of their backpacks and stroll into class "like nothing is different." "It's to help people visualize how ridiculous it would look if everybody in our community were 'carrying' [a gun]," Jin said. "Hopefully the dildos will churn up the sense of shock and discomfort that people should feel about guns being everywhere."

Wow. Did they think this up all by their little ol' selves?

Insert something about Freud and penis envy here.
I think they just wanted to have "show and tell" day at school. Honestly people walking around Austin, planning to walk around with their sex-toys in hand, would hardly be surprising.
"Keep Austin Weird".
I'm planning a counter-counter demonstration. I'm calling it:
"Rock Out, with Your Glock Out."
Use your imagination.

My guess is that no one is going to care that people have dildos on a college campus.
Take those dildos down to the local church and you might have something there Jin. Which out for people with guns though; you might piss them off.
