"My kind of open carry!" From Proffie Galore.

A student at the University of Texas thinks it's a dick move that a new Texas state law will allow concealed carrying of handguns on college campuses. In fact, Jessica Jin is so passionate about this sensitive topic that she urges a provocative exhibition: arm students with brightly colored toys that are safer and waymore fun to brandish: "quality dildoes, especially super large ones."

What would the late, great Molly Ivins say?

Extra credit for guessing which UT campus Ms. Jin attends.



  1. I'm not sure what Ivins would say (though I'd love to hear it), but I'm tempted to cite Clifford Geertz, and to muse on how gendered expressions of sexuality are changing, whether for the better or not is up to debate (still, this definitely beats pink guns for women). Also, it reminds me of the late (of CM; not generally, I very much hope) great Black Dog; I hope she's doing well somewhere out there.

    P.S. In searching for Black Dog's post, I discovered that we already have a "sex toys" tag that could be applied to this post. Between that search and the one on "women's guns" (which had varied results, some scary, some more encouraging), it's a good thing I'm browsing privately, or I'd be getting some very strange ads for a long time.

  2. For some reason, I'm not having much luck linking to a classic Black Dog post. So here's the url: http://collegemisery.blogspot.com/2010/11/where-enthusiasm-meets-snobbery.html .

  3. Molly Ivins memorably reported her enthisiastic participation in a counter-demonstration at a KKK parade in Texas. The crowd lined both sidewalks and mooned the Klan.

    1. I'm no fan of the KKK, but I wouldn't moon anyone if there were any prospect of anyone anywhere nearby of carrying oversized dildos. I mean: no thanks.

  4. "Enthusiastic" in the comment; "way more" in the post.
