Mixed reactions when Mexico City installs ‘penis seat’ on subway; great idea or really gross?

Talk about extreme!

Mexico City has installed a “penis seat” on one of its busiest subway trains to draw attention to sexual harassment on public transportation.

A sign above the provocative seat featuring a protruding mold of a man’s torso and penis reads: “Exclusivo para hombres” … which translates to Exclusive for Men.

A second sign on the floor in front of the seat reads: “It is uncomfortable to sit here, but that is nothing compared to the sexual violence that women suffer on their daily journeys.”

The intent is for men who sit there to realize just how uncomfortable women are when accosted on public transportation.

Mexico City launched the campaign — #NoEsDeHombres — to bring more attention to an issue that is a growing problem there. The Mexican government says 65 percent of women in the capital have been sexually harassed on buses or trains, according to Fox News.

There’s an accompanying public relations video that documents the reactions of both male and female commuters as they encounter the “penis seat.”

There was a mixed reaction to the “penis seat” on social media, with some loving the concept, while others think it’s gross.

Here’s a sampling of reactions from Twitter:
