Someone thought that this was a good idea...

The surprising thing about French restaurant Ananas' lipsticked mouth-shaped urinals isn't that they have decided to remove them, it's that it took someone three weeks to get pissed off (no pun intended) about them. The "sumptuous" Sydney, Australia, eatery attracted criticism over their choice in pee décor from at least one feminist writer. "This is just an example of misogyny," Ann Summers said. "They're asking men to put their d***s in these mouths as urinals." The urinals, designed by female artist Meike van Schijndel, have been spotted (and complained about) in Europe, including at Germany's Rolling Stones Fan Museum. "We sincerely apologize if they have caused offense," an Ananas spokeswoman said.

Boring. Feminists are always looking for something to be butthurt about. It would be news if the restauranteurs had the stones to tell the fems to piss off. Those lips look more like Mic Jagger's than some professor of women's studies'

It is a silly aesthetic choice but nothing worth protesting.

Fair enough. But then why back down? Clearly, people are going to be upset. You can decide that that is silly, and it's really a Rolling Stones tribute (in a way...). But why spend all that money and then, amazed when there is a protest, pull the things out?

In answer to Mungowitz's question (above), I guess the restaurant has milked it for all the publicity that it's worth.

Feminist killjoy can't just say "I don't do fellatio" or even "no woman should because [some reason]". No, she wants no man to fantasize about it. As if to provide contrast, there is Hot Japanese girl shows you how to give felatio using a banana. Who has more fun?

Who the hell designed the layout of those urinals. I don't think I'd like to be trapped at that corner one...
