Nay, sir.  I envision them not so much as the bubble pictured in the
article, but rather as a platform with a fairing over top, so they are
mostly open at the bottom, providing rain and some wind protection, but
allowing plenty of cooling air circulation.  The seats could be made of a
vinyl which would not absorb sweat or urine.  A fart wouldn't hover and
squick in there more than a few seconds, even on a still day.
