039;Penis seat' for men appears on public transport- but for an important reason

The campaign serves as a unique first step toward tackling sexual harassment, which appears to be a prevalent issue in the Mexican capital.

'It's uncomfortable to sit here but it doesn't compare with the sexual violence that women suffer in their everyday lives'.

Women who take mass transpiration in Mexico City have it rough.

If you've ever used public transportation, you may have noticed two things: 1) Human beings are bad, and 2) There aren't any seats molded in the shape of a male torso, including the meat & two veg. Mexico City can't do anything about the first part, but...

Press Secretary Sean Spicer said earlier this month that excursions to Mar-a-Lago are "part of being president". Under Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, the White House voluntarily maintained an online database.

The ad says 9 of every 10 Mexico City women have been the victim of some type of sexual violence during their commutes. "So what the campaign is saying is that all of these behaviors do constitute violence, they damage women. but they also damage men". But women bear the brunt, with statistics showing high rates of harassment and violence toward female riders on mass transit systems in many cities around the globe, according to the World Bank.

The city has employed other strategies to make women safer, including women-only train cars and buses. Most often the abuse was verbal, but 26 percent had been groped and 2 percent had experienced sexual assault.

It was launched by UN Women and the Mexico City authorities as part of #NoEsDeHombres, a campaign to highlight sexual harassment on public transport.

Now let's see what a lewd sculpture can do.
