"Misogynist" Austrian urinals flushed out to eBay

VIENNA (Reuters) - Four urinals shaped like a woman's lips went on sale on eBay on Thursday after being removed from a public toilet in Vienna following protests from women's groups who said they were sexist.

Designed by Viennese artist Rudolf Scheffel for the "toilet-bar Vienna" next to the National Opera, the urinals featured lips covered in red, orange or blue lipstick, a bright red tongue and gleaming white teeth.

The urinals were in the toilets for three years but raised an outcry in the run-up to Austria's October 1 parliamentary election when they were used by political party supporters attending rallies nearby.

Women's rights campaigners described the urinals as sexist and misogynist. They will be restored to their original condition before being sold, the toilet's operator said on auction Web site eBay.

"Each urinal will, of course, be meticulously cleaned," the seller said. "The artist himself will sandblast it, brush the mouth's teeth, and give them a new varnish."

Hey ladies, if it's in the mens bathroom, it's the men's business.
