Reading all of these articles is highly recommended. Beware, the U.S.A. is next, especially if President Obama is re-elected.
Western Europe is abuzz with the latest flare-up in the war between the sexes, and for the moment, the Amazons seem to be winning. If outrage continues to mount, it will soon be not just uncool and politically incorrect for a man to urinate while standing up, but out-and-out ILLEGAL.
Yes, the liberated women of France and Germany and Holland have vowed to put their men down – on the toilet. They carry placards showing a huge red X scrawled across a man standing to urinate. They shout: “Laissez tomber votre pantalon, et asseyez vous! (Drop your trousers and sit)!” “Behalte deine Tropfen für dich (Keep your drips to yourself)!” “Toch niet weer een vieze plas op MIJN badkamer vloer (Not another filthy puddle on MY bathroom floor)!”
That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
A Swedish political party is taking a stand against upright urination.
At a county council meeting Monday, the Left Party, orVänsterpartiet, tabled a motion that would require office washrooms to be genderless with a sit-down-only requirement, reported the news agency Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå.
For men who might refuse to comply, party representatives suggested a separate set of toilets clearly labeled for stand-up urination only.
Vänsterpartiet, known as a socialist and feminist organization, believes seated urination is healthier for men and more hygienic for both sexes.
Viggo Hansen, a substitute council member who authored the motion, told Sveriges Television that that the move does not represent an attempt to meddle in the bathroom habits of citizens.
“That’s not what we’re doing. We want to give men the option of going into a clean toilet,” he said.
Uff Da !!!! As ‘de sayin’ goes in Meenesota….. Uuuuuuuuuuuuuff Daaaaaa !!!!
In Sweden, where daycare centres encourage little boys to “be a sweetie and take a seatie”, the issue is not being taken lightly.
In an interview with a local television channel, Hansen pointed out that according to some experts sitting down to urinate is not only more hygienic but also reduces the risk of prostate trouble.
His proposal also claims that relieving oneself while seated “contributes to a better and longer sex life.”
