May 6 (UPI) — A local wing of Austria’s Green Party announced it is holding a special meeting to teach women how to urinate standing up in unclean public bathrooms.
The Green Party in Perchtoldsdorf, Lower Austria, which periodically holds “women’s breakfasts” to discuss social and political issues, announced that the theme of the coming Saturday’s meeting will be “everything that concerns the pelvic base.”
The party said the discussion will include instructions on how to urinate from a standing position at music festivals, sporting events, and other locations where unclean restrooms are likely to be found.
The participants at the meeting will be instructed on how to build simple devices to assist with standing urination, organizers said.
Martha Gunzl, a local councilor and Green Party member, said she and other organizers were shocked at how much attention the planned meeting has been gathering online.
“We always discuss controversial subjects, but because we are just a local group nobody has ever shown any interest up until now,” she told Der Westen.
Gunzl said a few male members of the local party will be on hand to help with security, because the increased interest has led to “many nasty emails.”
