Meanwhile, in China, there’s a parking lot with, I shit you not, eight “women only” parking spaces.
The spaces are larger than the 370 regular-sized spaces because we women are super bad at driving and therefore need more space in which to park our cars. I mean, with our propensity to get distracted and poor sense of spatial awareness, it’s no wonder we lack the ability to squeeze our cars into the same parking space as men. Or maybe it’s just that men are better than us at everything, especially things that require operating large pieces of machinery.
The lady spots are 50% larger than the regular spots (okay, so the folks in Tonglu don’t think that women are just a little bad at driving, they think they’re really bad) and distinguished with pink lines and a generic pink woman symbol, painted very large so that the woman driving her car poorly won’t miss the spot that’s made especially for her.
The director of the parking lot, Pan Zhuran, told the Qianjiang Evening News that the “customized” spaces were meant to “humanize” the service area. Sure thing, buddy. Nothing makes women feel more human than being told via parking space that we can’t do something as well as a man.
Hey Trump, if you’re reading this don’t get any bright ideas.
