Someone's comment on this product:Disgusting.

The product is insulting, and the advertisement assumes changing diapers is a "mom" (i.e., female) activity.

People pay money for this crap?
Comment:  I agree that the Pee-pee Teepee is stupid and ridiculous. But calling something a "teepee" doesn't automatically make it stereotypical.

It's stereotypical when you label the item "Wild West" and associate that with teepees, arrows, and dancing Indians. The West was "wild" only because the white man kept breaking treaties and trespassing on Indian land.

For similar stereotypes, see Indian Reservation = "Wild West"?! and "Wild West" Shrinky Dinks.

Okay, so now Indians are associated with urination? WTH?
