A religious organization has filed a lawsuit against the city of San Francisco to remove an open-air urinal it calls unsanitary and indecent for a popular park. The Chinese Christian Union of San Francisco filed a civil complaint last week demanding the city remove the concrete circular urinal from the iconic Dolores Park. The group says the urinal, which is out in the open and screened only with plants for privacy, emanates offensive odors, has no hand-washing facilities and is offensive to manners and morals.
The open-air urination hole violates the privacy of those who need to use the restroom but would be required to expose their bodies and suffer shame and degradation of urinating in public view.
I guarantee you that Chinese Christian Union of San Francisco is probably gonna be called a bunch of bigoted hatemongers because when you gotta go, you gotta go.
The City Attorney’s office said in a statement that it will defend against the litigation and pointed out the 16-acre park is well-known for its ‘counter culture, immodest sunbathers, pot brownie vendors, spectacular city views, and famously irreverent “Hunky Jesus” contest.'”
“The office said residents advocated for the facility, called “A pissoir.”
A public urinal, especially one on the streets of some European cities, with a circular screen around it.
It’s to stop people from urinating on the walls. San Francisco apparently cannot stop people from urinating on the walls and on bushes and the sidewalk, so they built this open air hole.
If they can’t stop people from urinating on the walls they have a much larger problem than a pissoir!
