It’s come to our attention that there’s a product on the market called the Go Girl, and no, it’s not a dating app, it’s a female urination device. According to the product description, the Go Girl “is the way to stand up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It’s a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD) that allows you to urinate while standing up.” Um. Okay. First of all, considering this is the only time we’ve heard about this and it’s already bizarre, we can bet you just made that abbreviation up and nobody ever uses the term FUD.
It looks like a hot pink mini urinal, and the way you’re supposed to use it is uh, just pee into it I think? How on Earth it’s supposed to be more convenient, we’re not really sure, considering anywhere you wouldn’t want to squat and pee, you probably wouldn’t want to pull down your pants and pee out of a cone either. Plus, the idea of disposing of this thing after use sounds much messier than any emergency squat.
The description goes on, “Only GoGirl is made with flexible, medical grade silicone. Dispose of it after use. Or clean and reuse as you like.” Great, maybe you can boil this and your diva cup together and save some water, if you live in California where there’s a drought.
A tagline on their homepage says “Life’s greatest adventure shouldn’t be finding a bathroom.” Oh because when you need to pee and the line to the girls bathroom is forever, you’ve definitely thought to yourself, “If only I could pee in the middle of this club from a hot pink dildo thing, life would be much better.” Sure, we’ve all been there.
Seriously, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was just a big prank pulled by the meninist camp to make women look dumb.
