Stop stand-up urination for men, Swedish politicians urge
CBC News ^ | June 14, 2012 | Lauren O'Neil

Posted on 06/15/2012 7:23:32 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

A Swedish political party is taking a stand against upright urination.

At a county council meeting Monday, the Left Party, or Vänsterpartiet, tabled a motion that would require office washrooms to be genderless with a sit-down-only requirement, reported the news agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå.

I live in KY. I pee off my porch, or anywhere else on my property I want to.

Reason number 9 that it’s great to be a man: The world is your urinal.

This is gonna piss-off many men.

Expect the next law to be: passing a law to require putting the seat down.

Expect the next law after that to force manufacturers to have built-in-unhinged seats.

Curious to see how this would be enforced.

Perhaps a better way would be to assign a trained "holder" in each stall to ensure proper aim. Since it's Sweden, perhaps a generic name for these compliance officers could be "Erik the Holder".

For literally decades, feminists have been trying to stop men from peeing while standing. Whenever there is a feminist woman in some local government committee overseeing construction of new buildings, she will try to convince everyone to omit the urinals in the men’s rooms because they are “outdated” and do not “fit into modern times.” It’s nuts. There must be some deeply rooted envy at the heart of it.

But the most ridiculous part is the liberal, err, “men” who comply and always sit down to pee. There is a special word for these people in German: Sitzpinkler

I am convinced there is some remaining instinct in the human male that encourages taking an outside wiz. Perhaps something about marking territory.

But there is a distinct difference in going #1 into an interior porcelain container vs the distinct pleasure of letting it fly in the great outdoors.

Ladies, you would not understand.

"Expect the next law to be: passing a law to require putting the seat down. Expect the next law after that to force manufacturers to have built-in-unhinged seats."

So leave the seat down, stand up and pee all over it.

I like to sit down when I pee

I can read a magazine, try to squeeze out some potential; flatulence. Than I can sleep for a few moments

And plus I am too lazy to want to clean up any splashes

Feminists are just another useful idiot group being used to advance communism.

If misogyny would advance communism better, the left would embrace it and reject feminism.

What there are going to monitors in each stall making sure men sit down?
Men will do what they always do, either lift the seat and not put it back down or try and pee through the seat and miss.

Seems God was just about done creating the universe, but he had two extra things left in his bag of creations, so he decided to split them between Adam and Eve.

He told the couple that one of the things he had to give away was the ability to stand up while urinating. “It’s a very handy thing,” God told the couple, whom he found under an apple tree.

“I was wondering if either one of you wanted the ability”.

Adam jumped up and blurted, “Oh, give that to me! I’d love to, please oh please, oh please, let me have the ability, It’d be so great! When I’m working in the garden or naming the animals, I could just stand there and let it fly. It’d be so cool, I could write my name in the snow! Oh please God, let it be me who you give that gift to, let me stand and pee, oh please...”

On and on he went like an excited little boy who had to pee.

Eve just smiled and told God that if Adam really wanted that so badly, that he should have it.

It seemed to be the sort of thing that would make him happy and really wouldn’t mind if Adam were the one given this ability.

And so Adam was given the ability to control the direction of his micturition while in a vertical position.

Adam was so happy that he celebrated by wetting down the bark on the tree nearest to him, while laughing with delight all the while.

It was so good. “Fine,” God said, looking back into his bag of leftover gifts, “What’s left here? Oh yes, multiple orgasms...”

I haven’t yet looked at the thread to see whether this is involved, but I know several Iraqi Muslim families and it’s part of their religion/culture for males to sit down to pee.

Exactly how would the ban on standing up be enforced?

Cameras?

Infrared sensors?

Human Commode Monitors? (TSA Gropers take note)

Electronic foot sensors with audible warning alarm (toes must be facing away from commode)

I think the US Navy is phasing out urinals in its ship ‘heads’ for two reasons. First is that swabs spray everywhere and their urine is corrosive to paint and metal, and the second is that if you just have crappers, you can clean the head in a few seconds with a fire hose, which apparently you can’t do with urinals about.

I remember a story from many years ago about a gas station owner whose father had been a plumber. His restrooms were impressive, with a big drain on the floor, and a bunch of spray nozzles in the ceiling and walls. It was like an indoor car wash.

As needed, he would remove the paper, open the drain, then lock the door and turn a valve to spray high pressure water on everything all at once. Then he would secure that valve, pour cleaning solution into a tank, and turn a second valve that would spray lower pressure cleaning solution all over everything. After letting that soak for a while, he would secure that valve and turn on the high pressure valve again to rinse.

It would spend the night drying, then the next morning, he would put the paper products back in the clean restrooms.

There was one time, however, when some filthy homeless guy decided to foul up the restroom. The next time he saw him enter, he locked the door and started the cleaning cycle.

It cost him some paper towels and toilet paper, but it was worth it.

Sit down toilets won’t stop men from standing while using them.

No urinals just means anyone wishing to sit down is going to have to clean the spray off the seat first.

In Germany, they use the word “setzpinkler”, which means “sitting pisser” to describe a wimply, wussified man. Pretty accurate and insightful, if you ask me. So, the Swedes want to make it official that they are a nation of setzpinklers.

I refuse even to put the seat down afterwards, but then again, maybe that is part of the reason why I am not married :)

That would be a motivation for most men to be "Fast and Furious" about doing their business.
