Bah! I understand how wrong and widespread sexism and misogyny are, but feminism makes me sigh with a smile sometimes. There's this shopping mall I've been to where the urinals have pics of women laughing and pointing at your 'you know what'. It might be distracting or annoying to some, but no man went to the media screaming how offended they felt.
