Rolling Stones Fan Museum In Germany Under Fire Over Lip Logo Urinals
It seems pretty logical to me that the Rolling Stones Fan Museum in Germany has urinals shaped like the big, juicy pair of lips that make up the band’s iconic logo. Some feminists and others in Germany, however, find them to be discriminatory against women.
The museum, located in the small town of Luechow, hasn’t even opened yet and the urinals are already pissing people off (couldn’t help it). The urinals remove the tongue and appear a bit brighter, which apparently looks more womanly. Feminists and critics say this conveys a misogynistic message.
Sorry, this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. Are the offended aware that the Rolling Stones have had this logo since 1971, and that it was originally modeled after Mick Jagger’s lips? To top everything off, the designer is a woman! (Dutch artist Meike van Schijndel). The museum’s owner, Ulli Schroder, had this to say:
That’s not a man’s mouth or a woman’s mouth, that’s art. They were damned expensive and they’re staying where they are and that’s final.
I love it! It looks like that’s the end of that. If any place could and should have a lip urinal, shouldn’t it be the Rolling Stones Fan Museum? What do you think?
