A local decision that schoolboys must sit on toilet seats when urinating has provoked political debate. The head of The Democrats Party, a splinter group of former Progress Party hardliners, Vidar Kleppe, is outraged that boys at Dvergsnes School in Kristiansand have to sit and pee.
Kleppe accuses the school of fiddling with God's work, and wants the matter discussed at the executive committee level of the local council, newspaper Dagbladet reports.
"When boys are not allowed to pee in the natural way, the way boys have done for generations, it is meddling with God's work," Kleppe told the newspaper.
"It is a human right not to have to sit down like a girl," Kleppe said.
Principal Anne Lise Gjul at Dvergsnes School would not comment on Kleppe's plans to make political waves and regretted if anyone was offended by the ban on standing and passing water.
Gjul told NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) that the young boys are simply not good enough at aiming, and the point was to have a pleasant toilet that could be used by both boys and girls.
Is that in the EU Constitution?
Surely, that didn't translate correctly?
I hear there's even talk of secession in Norway over this! There's a guy named Yuri who wants to set up his own country so that Norwegians can go to the bathroom as they see fit. But the guy's got a big ego -- he wants to call the new country Yuri Nation.
same issue was a stink in Sweden a coupla years back-i think there the ruling included males of all age in public facilities or such....
Are you sure this is not from "The Onion"?
MYTH #1: "Men can pee standing up"
Fact: The reality is men can NOT pee standing up without getting as much as a stray drop on the seat or the outside surface of the toilet. Fragmentation of the urine stream causes particles of urine to dissipate. The larger the distance urine has to travel, the bigger the dissipation radius gets. Some of you may say, "No, not me! I can pee through a donut from 40 feet above!" Well, mister hand-eye coordination, you are probably one of those people who also never ask for directions. Admitting that you have a problem is half the battle. At some point in your life you need to ask yourself, "Is it worth it? What has peeing standing up cost me in my life?"
Sitting in a urinal must be bad for the back, besides, this discriminates against urinal manufacturers.
You know, sometimes you just have to stand up and be counted. It's easy to zip through life without pausing to relieve ourselves of the accumulated weight of all that we unthinkingly swallow each day. You don't have to be a whiz to see that it's wrong to simply go with the flow: you've go to look out for Number One, because no one else will. I for one, will look to take matters in hand and shake off the last drops of oppression, button up smartly and move forward, flush in the knowledge that I've done my duty, and well.

The solution is for women to lift the seat when they are done using the toilet.
Michael Jackson has been hired to enforce the policy.
And who's going to police this? Are they going to have someone watch to make sure the boys sit down? Why don't they just have a pee tree for boys? I'm sure the boys would love that.

OK, so I am glad my great grandfather emigrated from Norway a long time ago, it's gone so faggy.
