Unrelated, thought I would share

Mexico City Metro has gone viral after installing a ‘penis seat’ on one of its trains. The stunt – which is part of a campaign against sexual harassment – has made more than a few commuters feel extremely uncomfortable.

The campaign video shows people’s reactions as they sit on the chair, which has been moulded into the shape of a man’s chest and groin area. Some sit down without noticing, only to jump up as soon as they realise what is between their legs, others try to cover it up with their jackets in order to sit down and some just look away in disgust – but this is the whole point of the campaign.

Above the seat, a sign reads: “It’s uncomfortable to sit here but it doesn’t compare with the sexual violence that women suffer in their everyday lives. 9 out of 10 women in Mexico City have been victims of some form of sexual violence.”

It’s definitely an attention-grabbing stunt that we approve of, especially if it gets more eyes on that shocking statistic.
