Someone in South Korea has apparently decided that women-only parking spaces should be a thing.   (Shutterstock)

(Newser) – This is apparently not a bad joke: South Korea is unveiling the female-only parking spot, according to reports at the Independent and NBC. The lowdown: Seoul is looking to become more "woman-friendly" via initiatives like the extra-wide, extra-long, bright pink parking spots. In case that's not obvious or patronizing enough for those of the female-and-driving persuasion, the spots will be marked with a pink-and-skirted female logo. On the (literally) bright side, the Huffington Post notes that they'll be well-lighted and closer to elevators. Oh, and for the record, this is not the first time this has happened.

Funny how women whine about not getting their way....then they get their way and they whine about it too!! I am a girl and wear high heels, I should not have to walk so far....I am a girl and it is windy and I don't want to mess my hair....I need to park closer....I am a woman and am afraid of men so I need to park closer......OK, here you go....boo hoo, now I look weak and silly because I got my way!!!

We'll have the same thing here in the US if Hilary Clinton ever becomes president.

Why not? We already have seas of cripple parking spots in out malls, though few are really for cripples. Most are occupied by the too fat to walk gang.
