An interesting graffito

Seen in Cambridge, MA: it appears to be male and female symbols with radiation symbols inside them. Anyone seen anything like this around?

    Haven’t seen anything like this, but the DU in the right hand, top corner most likely stands for depleted uranium, so it is part of the No DU movement perhsps?

    I live in the “other” Cambridge so I haven’t seen these, but “DU” is probably “Depleted Uranium”, which is used in armour piercing ammunition and has been found to contaminate locations where it is used http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs257/en/

    So this looks like some sort of protest against the use of DU ammunition.

    I’m afraid that I can’t help you with “WTP”.

    Paul: super helpful. I admit, I thought “WTP” was “WTF”. . . Greg: this is in Porter Square T station, at the top of the escalators. I haven’t seen any anywhere else, but that doesn’t mean they’re not there. . .
