Toilet seats

Who the hell decided you always need to take them back down?
Why should men have the effort?
Why can't people just leave it as it is, and then the next person uses it however he wants to?
Or perhaps first, after years of bullshit, the toilet seat will be always up?

For men it doesn't matter, they generally don't give a fuck.
Women on the other hand are special. The toilet seat thing isn't just one of them.
Ever heard of female emancipation. Well, it's about females getting the same rights as men. It's not about femals being treated equally to men. As a simple rule of thumb comes to this: All humans are equal. But women are just a little bit more equal than men.
They want the same rights, but not the same obligations. Currently it's morally correct to discriminate men, but incorrect to discriminate women. Go figure. If you don't believe me simply turn on the television. And you'll see it's ok for women to judge men but not ok for men to judge women on their behavior, clothes, figure, etc. Because of this whole attitude men generally try to avoid confrontation. It doesn't matter much to them, but it means the world to women (why? that's one of life's greatest mysteries, even women can't explain it, women are generally seen as irrational and incoherent: "If you don't know what's wrong I'm not going to tell you.").
Ofcourse there are also women that don't bitch about the position of the toilet seat.

El, maybe you just hang out with the wrong females?

I know enough women who are cool, and TV isn't real life I don't really care that women are judging men on tv because it usually happens on comedies and it's funny. And besides, most of the tv shows have all women unrealistically beautiful and with 'slutty' clothes (not saying it's a bad thing ).

But men aren't any more discriminated than women if you ask me.

Some people see that as a handicap.

I was talking about real life TV (and not only those "reality" shows).

Not more, but less. Women are very judgemental., or at least they express it way more than men do.

I don't see why women in the Israeli army deserve to enjoy positions previously unavailable to them while men still serve longer, wear heavy military shoes unless they have medical permission not to, are expected to do more dangerous tasks, etc.

Men try to avoid confrontation.

Well, this thread was about toilet seats, but you took it somewhere else and I flowed.

My thoughts exactly. Obviously it's not all women, but i feel that that's the situation about many issues.

I've taken the controversial decision to re-open this thread, despite the fact that I haven't talked to anyone about it. I explain why here.

Before we start discussing again, please remember the forum "rules" and to avoid personal attacks and to respect one another and everyone's right to express their views.

I would like to address DD's post in the dear mods forum:

That's why it matters.
Why does the girl fall in? Doesn't she look where she aims her butt at?

Well the "traditional" time for this argument to happen is when the girl goes to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and doesn't turn on the light (being considerate not to wake the guy with bright bathroom lights, making the guy seem even more inconsiderate). She can't see the seat and therefore there's a bit of a splash and a bit of a scream.

It's really practical and considerate to put the seat down. Sometimes when you're in a rush you just don't look at the seat, and it would really suck to fall in. If you were my roommate I would appreciate it if you tried to put the seat down. Also, watch your aim. I'm not cleaning that up.
