“If there are guns in your bags, there will be dildos in mine,” she shouted, as she brandished one over her head. “If you pack heat, we’re packing meat! We’re going to make you as uncomfortable as we are (with guns).”
First, what the what?
I get that some people have an irrational fear of weapons. I get that some people are anti-gun, and wished that guns didn't exist. I get that some people don't think protecting yourself is a big deal.
But this? I don't understand the thought process here. A person carrying a concealed weapon is carrying it concealed. That means out of sight. The handgun isn't being waved around or being paraded around like some sort of trophy. It's being kept out of sight at all times.
So the response of publicly, openly carrying anything around seems odd. It's not really a parallel response. Really, these people should be carrying concealed sex toys around, right?
Second, what makes these people think that just because they're carrying around sex toys, it's going to change the mind of anyone who carries a concealed weapon? Virtually no one makes the decision to carry a concealed weapon lightly. It's a thought out, deliberate decision, not something on a whim, mostly because of the seriousness of the issue.
These "students and activists" carrying around sex toys are just outing themselves as unthinking, childish bird-brains. But that's fine, I guess. Everyone has the right to expose themselves...as dumb.
Finally, do these bird-brains think that carrying around a sex toy is going to be persuasive to anyone else? Frankly, it's more of a self-pleasing act for the people carrying the sex toy, in that they get to publicly show off their indignation. It makes them feel good, but that's it.
As I think about it, that seems appropriate for what they're carrying, no?
