A company is selling urinals for baby boys so they don’t ‘pee like a girl’
An online company has been mocked for selling urinal-shaped potties for baby boys.
The website Babys Steps, which sells clothing and accessories for babies, came under fire online for an ad for an online potty.
It is selling a ‘ergonomic baby boy froggy urinal potty’ – a multicoloured ‘urinal’ potty shaped like a frog with an open mouth.
The website posted an ad on Facebook which said: “Don’t Let Your Boy Pee Like A Girl!
“Grow your Boy like a MEN!”
The product is apparently designed to encourage kids to pee on the frog’s tongue.
The description of the product claims it is a “Cute, Ergonomic, Safe” and the “Perfect Urinal Potty for your Little One”.
The owner of Baby’s Steps later said: “My bad, I didn’t think people will take it so offensive [sic] it was an advertisement.
“This is just a generic product post from the Website.”
The post was mocked online.
Twitter user Sam Chaplin joked: “PISS IN THE FROG’S MOUTH LIKE A MEN!!”
Another joked: “Why would I want my boy to have multiple personalities triggered by pissing in open frog’s mouths?”
Peeing sitting down has often been linked with effeminacy.
The German word ‘sitzpinkler’, often used to describe feminine or cowardly men, literally means someone who sits and urinates.
Of course, babies should just be thankful that they are allowed to pee inside.
Clueless star Stacey Dash recently claimed that transgender women should be forced to pee outside in the bushes.
The actress and bathroom ban supporter told transgender women: “Go in the bushes.
“I don’t know what to tell you. I’m not going to put my child’s life at risk because you want to change a law, so that you can be comfortable with your beliefs.”
