A German water park put a "NO GIRLS ALLOWED" sign on one high-speed waterslide after several women suffered "intimate injuries" on the ride. The X-Treme Fazer slide which sends riders shrieking downhill at speeds up to 45 mph reportedly gave six women genital injuries. Rather than close the attraction, the park's owner has banned women and their easily damaged ladybits from the Fazer. "We are trying to do right by women, the manager of the Galaxy Rutschenparadies said. (That translates to 'Galaxy Slide Paradise,' although our idea of paradise doesn't involve painfully battered personal areas.) The park is building a protective suit for women to wear on the Fazer but yeah, we still think we'll skip it.

Surely the better option is to fix the slide so they don't have to discriminate?

I agree with sister of mercy. Why not fix it, so that everyone can get on the ride, and NOONE gets hurt? I forsee a law suit here.

You forgot something! The comments after the story are also enlightening.

I cannot imagine how it could damage ladies but not men! Their dangly bits are mighty sensitive.

So, how do you fix a ride so that it does not cause injuries to women, and why is it discrimination to say women cannot go on the ride because of the risk of injury?

And, even if it is, why would this kind of "discrimination" be wrong. And, why would some idiot want to sue? A lawsuit based on the premise that it is unsafe for me to use something because of my gender, therefore it should be changed to appease my gender, is the kind of lawsuit that should see the litigant arrested and charged with being a w**ker and sentenced to 12 months working with people in Sudan and/or Nigeria. Are all humans really so self centred and self important that they have to cry about every little thing that may not be exactly what they want?

The short answer: Most of them!

Well, here's a way around the "no girls allowed," which is irritating and demeaning by itself, but I digress...

Post a sign that says "Females can suffer injury on this slide. Ride at your own risk."

I guess that means they will now have to fit all amusement park rides to accommodate fat people to fit in them. Or make roller coasters safe for small children.

Yeah, and they will have to find a way to make tampons usable by men or that is discrimination too. And theatre seats - if they are too small they discriminate against fat people, too big and I cannot use the arm rests which is discrimination against me. And then there's all those "girl's cars" that are way too small for me, so that is discrimination - I really must go and find a lawyer and sue, until the world is perfect for me... that seems to be the answer to all problems...

Sometimes I'm embarrassed to be a member of the human species.
