A new dildo display at the University of Texas at Austin seeks to immortalize a recent anti-gun protest dubbed “Cocks Not Glocks” that featured students carrying female sex toys around campus.

A new display put together by the anthropology department at the University of Texas at Austin intends to commemorate the campus’ “Cocks Not Glocks” protest that primarily took place in 2016. The commemorative dildo, nicknamed “big boy,” sits in a glass casing in a campus building. The protest, which carried the slogan “fighting absurdity with absurdity,” aimed to bring attention to gun reform measures by outlandishly carrying dildos around campus.

Some students feel that “big boy” should be even more prominently displayed on campus. “It’s in a very confined and hidden place,” one student said in a comment to the campus’ student newspaper. “Knowing Austin and knowing UT and what this stands for, I feel like it should be given a more prominent display and location. It has a story. Maybe it was a taboo in the past, but now it stands for something.”
