The Offensive Internet (don't worry, it isn't too graphic)

I love the Firefox internet thing. I don't know what they are called. The most popular one is Internet Explorer but Firefox is quickly becoming number 1. I love it. It has lots of little add-ons that you can add (obviously) depending on what you use the internet for. I usually don't add these because I do know they are usually just ways to waste time, waste hard drive, & make you more vulnerable to viruses. Having said that I recently decided to add Stumble! (the exclamation point is part of the name, not that I am really that excited about it). I added it just to see what it was all about with the expectation that I would be deleting it soon. But I really like it. You check off what you are interested in then, when you are bored or whatever, you click the "Stumble!" button they will send you too a website that they feel matches your interests & that you may like. This is a really cool thing. I have found lots of cool sites with this so far. You can also vote if you liked the site or didn't & that helps them to be able to narrow down more what you like.

However, for some very odd reason they sent me to one site that I cannot fathom why they would think I, or any woman for that matter, would ever be interested in this product. To me, this is one of the most offensive products I have ever seen marketed to women (yes, it even superceeds the "Have a happy period." slogan by Always). The only reason I can imagine that they would ever send me to some garbage is that I put down that I was female.

Anyway, the product they are trying to sell is called P-Mate. First, the name itself is beyond disgusting. This product gives women "the freedom to pee standing up." As far as I'm concerned, we have always been free to pee standing up but it just is a little messy. I mean really, does this really plaque people at night. "How can I make the world a better place? I know! I'll invent something women can use so they don't have to sit down to urinate!" Come on, this is how they spend their time, money, energy, creativity? Wow, one more useless piece of crap to fill up landfills.

But my favorite part is where they say, "The P-Mate does NOT get all wet and soggy after use. You can easily slip it back into a pocket or bag for later disposal if you are outdoors where there is no garbage can." Yeah, I'm going to stick a piece of cardboard that I've just peed on into my pocket. Gross.

Sound Familiar?
  • The P-Mate is a revolutionary way
    for women to pee discreetly without having to pull down
    their pants and squat.
  • The P-Mate is the most amazing
    female urinary device.
  • The P-Mate gives women the freedom
    to pee like men.
  • The P-Mate is clean and hygienic.
  • The P-Mate is covered with a 4-leaf clover design as it is good luck to have one with you when you are in need.
  • The P-Mate does NOT get all wet and soggy after use. You can easily slip it back into a pocket or bag for later disposal if you are outdoors where there is no garbage can.
  • P-Mate was invented by a creative Dutch woman. They allow girls and women of all ages the ability to neatly pee standing up.
