Flushing the stereotypes

The author of The Unwords recommends:

Putting the toilet seat down if you're a man...and lifting the toilet seat up if you're a woman. It only takes a second and if you just exited the toilet, your partner will probably be the next to use it. Respect each other.
I do not want to live in a society in which a concept like "a second of my time" is considered hard labour.


  1. Unless you live in a house where there are more women. Then, mathematics and probabilities dictate that the toilet seat should be down.

    But I see your logic. :)

  2. :) True...I mean let's face it, if you're a husband and father of three girls and you actually demand for the toilet seat to be up when you enter the toilet, you deserve to be lobotomised.

    But in a simple case of husband and wife...then I don't see why women shouldn't lift the toilet seat up before they leave. I think men are treated unfairly here and they have a point...for once. :)

    1. True again. Still, mathematics support the women's argument. Out of the total of 4 physical needs per couple, 3 of them require the toilet seat down. But I would go with your kinder and more considerate solution :P
