Everywhere, literally everywhere, do I hear people complaining about how "nasty" women are in public bathrooms. People act like if women were the only filthy pigs in the world and the only ones who do bad stuff in public toilets. I always hear them say "women please don't be a shame to other women" and "women, please start/stop doing this and that!". But never EVER have I heard someone say such thing about men.
Now, those who are also one of these people, let me break your bubble: Men also do a lot of inappropriate stuff in public toilets, so EVERYONE should improve their behavior, not just women.
1. Let's start with the known fact that is pissing on the floor. It is actually more commonly seen in male toilets than female toilets. I know that it can be hard to aim, but hovering for us women can also be difficult. So if women should improve their behavior in this area, men should too as they're not necessarily angels, either.
2. Do you know why the sinks in male toilets are often cleaner? Men usr them less often. There are many men who leave the bathroom without washing their hands because "I only touched my penis, there's nothing wrong with that!". Welp, if everyone knoe you previously touched your penis without washing your hands, they'd never want to greet you. Besides, you touched the door handle. Do you know how many bacteria there is on it? Conclusion: Women are not the grosser gender because they have dirtier sinks. The sinks are dirtier because they get used more often.
3. Clogged toilets are a problem for EVERYONE. Who the hell said that it's just women who clog toilets? Toilets get clogged mainly because of the high amount of toilet paper being flushed. Men use toilet paper, too. When they poop. So I don't know what world you live in if you've never ever seen a clogged male toilet. I don't see why women should stop clogging toilets but not men.
4. Male toilets also have a lot of hair in them. Ever heard of pubic hair? Also from what a janitor told me, men leave their smegma on the urinals. Oh well, I don't think I need to comment much on this. If you expect women to clean away their period blood and stuff, why can't you clean away your smegma? If female hair bothers you, why don't male pubic hairs bother you? Really, it makes no sense. If anything, it's just a double standard saying that men are allowed to leave how much dirt they want but when women do it, it's "gross".
Women are not the only ones doing inappropriate stuff in public bathrooms. These are only a few examples of what men are doing, but I am sure there are more. The point of this take was not to bash men, I made it to show people that they should not call women "filthy pigs" and men "innocent, clean angels". Because people complaining about female behavior in toilets are literally everywhere, but nobody cares to pay attention to things men do wrong.
Another thing you need to know is that I am sure I will get at least one comment from a former janitor saying that "female toilets are dirtier". Let me tell you, this does not answer this MyTake AT ALL. Because the point of this MyTake is not to prove that women are cleaner than men. Also, just because female toilets probably are dirtier does not mean that women are the only filthy pigs in the world and that men shouldn't improve their behavior in public toilets. If I hear someone say "women are disgusting" or "I'm embarrassed of being a woman", I will literally explode.
