(Far too much information)
If God had intended that women pee like men, She would have seen to it, in proper Darwinian fashion, that out of necessity they developed urinals between their kneecaps.
When will you be streaming video?
a) This is neither new or revolutionary - FtMs have been doing this for ages.
b) The titling (Go *Girl*) and colour (Pink? Really?) both suggest that anyone who needs help peeing standing up is *obviously* a woman.
Hooray for trans ignorance!
So someone marked something specifically for women. Big deal (though i admit, choosing the color pink is definitely calling upon a big stereotype). There are many STPs out there, many marketed with soley ftms in mind. That's not to say that women have never had STPs (I've seen plenty of them). If a women wants to piss standing (which is very helpful when your camping), I say power to them.
And it's not just trans men. It's also, for example, males with hypospadias that either can't pee standing up, or avoid it because it's too messy.
a few points.
1) trans guys have been doing this for like ever.
2) not all women have vaginas.
3) pink doesnt belong to women.
I spend a lot of time outdoors, and rather than doing the drop & squat, I got a transmission fluid funnel at the auto parts store for less than $5.
Works just as well, and I'm sure it's a hell of a lot cheaper.
I'm sure trans people have been using variations of this for YEARS. But I believe the current commercialization is inspired by the use of similar devices for female soldiers serving overseas. Probably not a whole lot of bushes where women can squat in a desert.
