What is the big deal? Can the girl put it down herself? I never find myself complaining or getting angry about the fact that I have to put it down when I need to go number 2.
Guys being as resourceful as we are we would just leave it down all the time if it becomes an issue, and in that case the seat would become covered in piss. So what would you rather have: a pissy seat or a clean seat you have to put down yourself?
An since we are on the subject, if you girls want to know why we can't make it in the bowl every time here is why. When we have to get up at night to piss we can't see and we are still half asleep and turning the light on hurts our eyes and only makes it worse. Also when you have a boner and you need to pee it's kinda difficult. And even when you aim your sausage towards the middle, the stream doesn't always flow straight (it can still flow to the side).
I learned something very important today boys and girls. If you want a girl to reveal her inner bitch (if she has one), raise the subject of toilet seats and her inner bitch will be released! This is a good first date question!
really I don't understand why there is such a big fight over this. Its the toilet seat for crying out loud, of all the things to fight over. its a courtesy, but its such a simple thing it can be forgotten.
I honestly don't understand what the big deal is either. When I hear another girl ask why a guy can't leave the toilet seat down, I ask why she can't just leave it up. If it was an incredibly strenuous task, then I would say the guy had to do it since they're the one who put it there, but it's not, so who cares?
Was your point there to reveal someone's bitchiology? Well the question is based on gender and it's obvious two sides are gonna disagree. Now if I reversed this question why guys don't leave it down after their business, wouldn't it reveal inner bitches in you guys? :)
Ok let's not fight. Simply the seat has to be left down because that's what the cover of the toilet is used for, to prevent spreading the bacteria. Is it so hard to damn it leave it down? :)
I am a little surprised that women are still arguing about this. I mean, we are in the, what, 21st century, right?
I never saw a big deal with it; it doesn't take much effort to flick a toilet seat down. I've never actually batted an eye when people leave the seats up; it's not the putting it down myself is some terribly tragic ordeal that causes me to break a sweat or something. :p
I'm thinking your girl (or whoever made you ask this question) is just a little too high strung.
It's polite if the guy puts the toilet seat back down, however I don't think its too big a deal. What really bugs me is when guys happen to miss the bowl, get pee all over the toilet and not bother to clean it up.
Unless there are pets, children, or company in the house I think all adults should be able to recognize what position the seat is in and change it if necessary. It's dumb that girls demand the seat be down, if they are going to complain about that shouldn't guys be allowed to complain about the seat being left down? If there aren't pets, kids or company on the house I don't see why it is such a big problem, just look before you let it out.
A married couple I am friends with have a good rule for this. The female came up with this, because she didn't find it fair that men are expected to carry this, along with many other acts out. When she is done using the toilet, she puts the lid up. When he's done, he puts the lid down.
Simple. Easy. Nothing to fight over.
So my feeling, let's all do the above, and then everyone feels good.
Personally, I not only keep the seat down when not in the bathroom, but also the lid. My mother made sure I kept the seat down when I was growing up. Then one day, I realized she just wanted the convenience for herself. So I decided, if I have to lift the seat, she does too. I'll tell you, it's easier putting it down than up, especially at my height. That's not why I do it now though. I actually stopped doing that when I moved out of my parents house. Now I do it again because I studied Feng Shui a bit, and the seat and lid should both be down when not in use. Also, it's more visually appealing and you don't have to worry about dropping anything in the toilet with the lid down.
This question reminds me of what I'd say if a girl asked me why men always leave the toilet seat up; "Uhm, that's how we use it!" If ya want us to leave it down, oook, but you'd not like the results I'm sure! ;)
Seriously though, in my household it's not a problem for two reasons. One, no women! Eventually I'd like it to happen but currently it's a no go. Secondly, I always put the seat and the lid down as I have cat's and don't want them having their own little swimming pools. :P
But as mentioned earlier, it's just as easy for a woman to put it down as it is for a man. If a woman is going to get all high and mighty (read bitchy I guess) about the toilet seat, then I'd come back with "Why don't you leave it up?" But, honestly I'd vote to just put both the seat and lid down.
I honestly think it's just really one of those questions that is an invitation to a fight like "Do these pants make me look fat?" type of thing.
I have found that if you install an AN-PEQ-2 Laser Aiming Module or the AN-PEQ-6 as seen here: link - to your schnitz.you won't have to leave the toilet seat up again. Where the laser points.is exactly where you'll pee. No calculation, no touching the toilet seat.and works in low light conditions. You're Girl will be happy.
