Rolling Stones Mouth Urinals Cause Uproar Among German Women
The Rolling Stones were masters of controversy in their heyday, but now it's their legacy which is causing a stir. A soon-to-be-opened museum in the German town of Luechow has had female fans in an a tiff over the urinals in the men's room, the L.A. Times reports. The urinals are based on the band's infamous red lips-and-tongue logo, which designer John Pasche created in 1971 and modeled after Mick Jagger's impressive mouth. "It's discrimination against women," Roda Armbruster, a "local feminist", as the L.A. Times calls her. If the urinals featured a tongue, "it would have been acceptable", because otherwise the connection to Jagger would be made explicit (in the non-offensive way, we assume). Without it she claims, "It's a woman's mouth, not a man's mouth." For his part, museum director Ulrich Schroeder said, "It's art. It's staying." To be fair, would having a tongue between your legs while you do your business really be that much better?

Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.
