Australia is going to be sitting down when it pees shortly

There is awful lot of claims of misogyny and sexism, from Gillard going nuts in parliament with faux outrage as she stuck up for a dodgy prick to a restaurtant apologising for some “misogynist” urinals.

A Sydney restaurant is removing urinals shaped like women’s mouths and has apologised for causing offence.

The two urinals, in the shape of bright red, wide-open lips, were installed in the French restaurant Ananas in Sydney’s Rocks area.

They formed part of Sydney Morning Herald critic Terry Durack’s review of the restaurant in yesterday’s Good Food.

The restaurant said the urinals were “a commonly used European design piece from female Dutch artist Meike van Schijnde” but would be removed.

“We sincerely apologise if they have caused offence. They are being removed today,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.

What are they going to do, take them all out and make everyone sit down to pee now?
