Light Girl Toilet Seat Scale: Cool or Not?

There are plenty of products marketed toward women, and until now toilets have been on pretty gender-neutral ground. Artist Haikun Deng is aiming to carve a niche toilet market with his Light Girl toilet design. The toilet seat doubles as a scale that weighs you before and after you've done your business.

Deng thinks women will be drawn to his creation because they tend to be concerned about weight and said, "As people tend to be lighter after using the toilet, it probably gives the most welcomed results to girls." There's truth in his comment that people weigh slightly less after toilet-time, but I'm not sure that women will embrace the product like he's hoping they will. What do you think of the Light Girl — cool or not cool?

Yea definitely. They'll get off the toilet and realize they're still too heavy and need to throw up some more.

I actually read about something like that recently, but it was a toilet seat instead of a whole toilet. I figured that they'd market it to men, though, because I feel like men would be much more interested in knowing how much their dump weighs. I had men who lived downstairs from me once who would have competitions to see who could fill an entire Gatorade bottle with pee. Men can be stupid like that.

the only time I had the desire to weigh myself multiple times a day was when I was really deep into an eating disorder. as if there aren't enough things in the world encouraging disordered eating. Wow :(

I like Spectra's comment: "why not just poop in a bag and weigh it."

This guy tried to think of the most offensive, stereotypical, idiotic product he could market towards women. Yes, dude, we're sooo obsessed with being nice and skinny that we obsess over it EVERY moment of our lives, even when going to the bathroom. That is, if we have deadly eating disorders, which this product would surely trigger. I suppose it's possible that this is a joke, but it makes me so incredibly angry!!! Ack!!!

Just as an aside, couldn't you do this yourself by stepping on the scale before and after?

mudnessa--Ha, my husband and his buddies would probably do the same thing! I could just picture them drinking too much and then seeing who could take the biggest crap. I could picture them making bets on it, even. Seriously, this is NOT a good idea. What's next, a device to put on your toilet to measure how much vomit you expel?

im not sure marketing this towards women is the best plan, i know for a fact my husband and his friends would all love to have these and then say i crapped this much last night and thing like that. definitely more of a novelty thing for men who love potty humor.

It's cool in theory. But that's it. It should just stay as a theory!
