Issue resolved: Women must return the seat to the correct upright position.

 

 

Well, I have had the debate on another forum but due to the rules there, it was not possible to get a clear resolve on the issue. So this thread is for all the ladies to state exactly why it is not possible for them to lift the seat when they are done with their business.

Or for that matter why

Or for that matter why someone wouldn't look where they are putting their naked behind.

I learned 15 years ago that it was a losing battle and I ALWAYS lift the seat after I go.

There is nothing worse then going into a dark bathroom and sitting down and your ass goes right into the toilet. I am in the habit of always checking and 99% of the time replacing the seat. (he sometimes puts it down...1% of the time )  Eye-wink

There is no controversy in

There is no controversy in my house 'cause the  older I get the more uncontrolled my stream gets so I sit down to avoid making a mess.

My masculinity is not threatened at all.

 This was a vicious debate

 

This was a vicious debate at my family's Christmas party this year. The ladies argued the usual: that the fellas should put the seat back down because they're not the only ones in the house. The fellas countered with the usual: that the ladies should, by the same logic, put the seat up because they are not the only ones in the house. Also, the guys look before they piss; why can't the ladies?

 

The ladies' final defense was twofold:

 

1) An appeal to chivalry. The fellas will do it if they are gentlemen.

2) A compromise in the name of neatness. For the bathroom to look its best, argue the ladies, the default position for the toilet is fully closed (i.e. seat AND lid must be put down after every use). Both sexes must respect the default position.

 

A place common to all will be maintained by none. A religion common to all is perhaps not much different.

I'm not sure how clean your bathroom is, but I've noticed that lifting the lid usually exposes more grunginess.  However, that's just aesthetics.  My main answer is "'Cause I'm the Mom and I say so."  The right to tyranny is grand.  Smiling

My fiancée and I have

My fiancée and I have seperate bathrooms. It is the single greatest thing I have ever experienced. No more shall I have to dig through 75 bottles and 3 loofahs to find shampoo that doesn't smell like an english countryside. No longer do I find out the hard way that my better half has used my razor on her legs (you can't stop the bleeding). Nevermore will I have to adjust my toilet seat to fit someone elses preferences!

Sorry, I tend to get a little carried away on the subject.

Chivalry went out when equality came in. You can have one or the other, not both. They are mutually exclusive.

Guests don't come to the house to critique the bathroom seat being up or down. Efficiency and effectiveness is far superior to some concept of neatness.

Besides, think of the animals, if you happen to have any. If you haven't filled the water dish, they'll be able to use the toilet without bothering you. And don't think it doesn't happen. Both dogs and cats are aware of its location and potential use for a water supply.

My medicine cabinet os above the toilet. People in my house are clumsy. Therefore the seat and lid go down.

easy answer

         I have been happily married for over 20 years because of two little words,  "yes dear".   At least the wife tells me I have.

The tyranny of married women! Are you really happily married, or do you just have marriage's form of stockholm syndrome?

That's not even possible. I

That's not even possible. I have never walked up to a toilet with the intentions of using it, and NOT looked at the seat before I sat down. It's simple sense. Not to mention that it's right IN FRONT OF YOU! as you walk up to it.

What if someone missed or had a split stream while they were pissing, and left a pool of piss on the seat because they were too lazy to clean it up or simply hadn't noticed? What if the seat itself is busted or missing? Or up, for that matter. And that's not even getting into some of the crazy shit I've seen as both a cleaner and a security officer in my work history. That goes for men and women. Believe it or not, the mens room is cleaner on average.

Anyone who doesn't look at a toilet before they sit on it is asking for whatever happens. They have noone to blame but themselves.

My response to your evil!Pic

My response to your evil!

Pic 1: I don't drink very much. I used to; pretty well all of '99 I was fucked up. But less and less every year since then. At this moment I haven't actually had enough to drink to get buzzed since last April. So I certainly don't need anyone to be carrying booze around. Eye-wink

Pic 2: Two tv's are a must. I couldn't co-habitate with ANYONE unless there were at least two tv's. Power of the remote: Denied. Sticking out tongue

Pic2: Evolution has evolved

Pic2: Evolution has evolved men to be addicted to stupid little gizmos for no reason. Just look at how many men buy smart phones, HD TVs and blue-ray players without knowing or ever learning how to use them properly. Because of this the man would (or already has) buy a super over powered $500 remote that will overpower your dinky woman remote that came with the TV.

tl;dr: man will get over powered remote.
