Jillian B. and Christie W. both sent in a link to a dress on etsy (and covered on regretsy) that transforms a woman into… a urinal. You know, something for men to piss on.

Many Readers may be understandably shocked, but Gwen and I are old hats at this.  In fact, we’ve covered urinals-as-women before in this pretty darn horrific collection of woman- (and nun-) themed urinals, toilets, and sinks.  Welcome to our world!

UPDATE: There is an interesting conversation going on in the comments, with one side arguing that the dress is satire, a feminist statement.  One commenter points us to this video which also features a yellow dress decorated with a urinal and the phrase “Not taking the Piss!”
