Is the ability to have a "f**k TRUMP" sticker protected under the first amendment? The ACLU thinks so. But what do Texas's obscenity laws say about it?

Apparently, title 9 chapter 42 of the Texas Penal Code specifies that disorderly conduct includes profane language or gestures when "its very utterance causes an immediate breach of the peace."

Now, I'm not some kind of fancy city lawyer, but if you can apply this law to a "f**k TRUMP" sticker, what of truck nuts? Truck nuts, for those uninformed, are decorations that hang from the rear bumper of a vehicle, and depict a pair of dangling testicles. They come in a variety of colors, patterns, finishes, and sizes. My favorite are these glossy skull truck nuts. But if truck nuts are permissible, why then is "f**k Trump" a crime? A detailed, veiny imitation scrotum is no less vulgar. I could make the argument that they "breach the peace," because when I see a pair I get the inexplicable urge to rear-end the truck in question.

In conclusion: if the truck nuts fit, you must acquit.
