This might be the greatest response to gun-toting GOP candidates I’ve ever seen. Absolutely clever, juvenile, and hilarious! Check out #GOPdildo on Tumblr, it’s a hoot. In the below article he explains why he’s Photoshopping dildos into the hands of Republicans, and his thoughts on gun control are thoughtful and well-stated. He’d like a more moderate approach to gun control than, say, Australia or some other countries, but the key point is that the GOP is hell-bent on taking no action whatsoever. In fact they’re falling all over themselves trying to look more pro-gun than the rest. Meanwhile, innocent people are getting mowed down by a spray of bullets almost every other day while gun sales rocket.
And, let’s face it, these guns really are just extensions of the penis. Guys looooove holding and caressing them, hoping it makes their own “guns” seem a bit larger. Some women like guns too, of course, but men seem to have a special relationship with them. And according to the blog’s author, these guys don’t like their
dicks guns ridiculed.
Of course, it being on the Internet, there’s a flipside reaction as well. I’ve been asked to meet people to see their guns, and perhaps to experience getting shot by them, I’ve had people on Twitter tell me all the things they want to do with a dildo to me, and I’ve even had a guy say he’d love to shove his gun up my ass and pull the trigger so I got the full idea of how powerful his weapons are. Usually I block or mute people on Twitter that tell me stuff like that so I don’t have to see it again.
The strangest reaction to me is when someone finds these images “hateful”. I’ve seen the word pop up a few times in responses, and it really throws me how something as harmless as a dildo crudely added to an image is seen ashateful, as if the original photo of someone proudly displaying a weaponcapable of ending anyone’s life instantly is instead seen as righteous. That right there? That is a set of priorities that are fucked up, full stop.
