The Brief: UT Students Wage Sex Toy Protest on First Day of Class

by Alex Samuels and John Reynolds | Aug. 25, 2016
Cocks Not Glocks members pass out 4,000 dildos before their rally against newly-enacted campus carry laws at UT -Austin on August 23, 2016.

The Big Conversation

Students and activists at the University of Texas at Austin voiced their displeasure with the campus carry law that went into effect earlier this month across the state by strapping sex toys to their backpacks and grabbing suggestively themed T-shirts.
As the San Antonio Express-News’ Kelsey Bradshaw put it, “It was an interesting first day of class, to say the least.”
A protest organizer told the Austin American-Statesman that if the demonstration seemed over the top, that was the intent. Ana L√≥pez said the demonstration was created to flout obscenity laws while protesting legalizing handguns on campus.
The protests, though, seemed to be getting little serious pushback. University administrators were quick to describe the protest as protected political speech. And a student concealed carry group also supported the protesters’ free speech rights, touting a “gun/dildo alliance.”
Disclosure: The University of Texas at Austin has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune. A complete list of Tribune donors and sponsors can be viewed here

“Stop White People”: Resident Advisers Create Controversial Course

by jonathanturley
UnknownThere is a controversy at State University of New York (SUNY) that is reminiscent of our recent discussion about the exclusion of white students in a housing advertisement at Claremont. The SUNY controversyconcerns a course put together by Resident Advisors Ciaran Slattery, Nicholas Pulakos, and Urenna Nwogwugwu, entitled “#StopWhitePeople2K16." Once again, the controversy raises the question of equal treatment at universities since SUNY would presumably react aggressively at RAs holding a course entitled "#StopBlackPeople2K16."
