More emasculation of young men - why don't they concentrate on teaching personal responsibility (ie cleaning up after one's self) instead?

Don't say this aloud. Democrats will create a govt. agency for the promotion of targeted urination.

I'll never forget the "learn how to aim" lecture that my borther and I got as kids.

We couldn't keep a straight face....

Someone needs to teach the head mistress how to urinate standing up. Or maybe standing on her head.

Ask any janitor which gender bathrooms have more "splashing" to clean up.


The answer is WOMEN.

I had a coworker whose father did it this way, and she trained her husband to do it too. Weird.

As a rule of thumb, if you don't clean the toilet, or pay someone to (such as when you visit a public restroom whose cleaning is paid for by your purchases or taxes) then have a seat. It's the polite thing to do.

Oh, and toilets have lids for a reason.

Weasel androgynous socialists who just want to destroy manhood.

Why doesn't the headmistress just post signs:

"OUR AIM IS TO KEEP THIS RESTROOM CLEAN.
YOUR AIM WILL HELP!"

I don't want to get too graphic here, but the manipulation needed for the male sit-down pee often leads to unsanitary contact between the pee pee and the commode.

"sitspinkleren": those who sit and pee/wimp

stehpinkelnen, or, "dudes who have the audacity to stand and pee." (Those who sit and pee in Germany are called sitzpinkleren, which also translates to "wimp.")
By the time the German device made public news, more than 1.8 million frauen peeved over their herren's seat-tinkling had purchased one. I do not know how many have been sold by now. What I do know is that a school in Norway has gone one step further: by attempting to make standing to pee an outright violation. The Dvergsnes School in Kristiansand, has adopted a "no standing" policy in their restrooms -- to be obeyed by all students, male and female.

Well, I can see the benefit as one who cleans the bathroom. My grandson who is two sits because he can not reach the bowl while standing. I guess I could get him a step stool ;-).

I won't forget the restroom of a very nice hotel in Dresden, Germany. Glazed into the back of the urinal, just at the right hight was the image of a very realistic fly...

Who says the Germans don't have a sense of humor?

Yeah, to give you something to stand on when you have to change the overhead light.

Let me get this straight...you're suggesting that I "have a seat" in a public restroom when I don't need to?

No thanks.

I worked one place where they had a female urinal installed. It was converted into a male bathroom and it was a weird looking device.

A lot of the problem has to do with these asinine urinals they install today. The old time ones that came up to your chest and down to floor don't splash. Those that are just hung on the walls will splash all over the floor and a person's pant's legs or bare legs if standing up. I hate them.
