Standing up while urinating may soon be illegal for men in Europe. Male representatives on the Sormland County Council and the Left Party are pushing for “sitting only” public restrooms. Exactly how the self-avowed socialist and feminist political party plans on enforcing the allegedly more sanitary restroom habits of males remains to be seen. Supporters of the law against standing while urinating also believe that male health will be bolstered when urinating while sitting on a toilet so the bladder empties more effectively, according to the Huffington Post. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...ref=weird-news

A similar movement is also brewing in Germany, France and Holland.

University of Louisville professor John Gamel believes that seated urination laws will not stop men from behaving in a less than sanitary manner while relieving themselves. According to Gamel’s statements in the Huffington Post, spatter caused during the “shake off” will still occur in Europe because “no man will want to shake” by sticking their hand inside a toilet.

Feminists in some portions of Europe have begun carrying sings stating “Drop your trousers and sit” with a logo of a man urinating standing up with a big red “X” over the image. Some women are taking the fight against standing urination so seriously that placards have also been spotted with the wording, “Not another filthy puddle on MY bathroom floor!” to discourage standing while urinating at home.

The Left Party is not at a loss for reasons to outlaw standing while urinating in Europe. UPIreports that supporters also believe sitting while urinating will reduce potential prostate issues and bolster the opportunity for a longer sex life.

When I was younger, I was out with my mate late at night with nowhere to go, I ran around the back of a police station and took a leak against the wall

I got caught by a cop when I got back next to my mate, he wasn't sure which one of us had done the deed, eventually after threats of arresting us both if we didn't tell him, I admitted it, and he said, and I quote:

"Its lucky you didn't take a leak over the road in the Metro station or I would have had to arrest you"

So, apparently its fine to p1sh against a cop station, but not in a train station

It would be impossible to enforce, and if they tried it would get out of hand, stupid feminists poking their noses in where it doesn't belong

Reminds me of an episode from the Chappelle Show
"Well, looky here, "Chad." For the entire period you in my room, I better not catch you standing up peeing. You sit down when you pee, you got that? Now get your fat ass on outta here."

Both of those sites are trashy newspapers, would take what they say with no inkling of truth.

But it's good to know a few representatives in one party in a small county in sweden = europe.

I wish they would enforce this at where I work. There's always a huge puddle of pee in front of the urinals because people don't know how to shake properly. I always end up going in the stalls because I don't want to step in it.

Some men have a terrible job aiming straight enough to piss through the hole in the toilet seat.
So what's the point?

This is too funny.
Are they going to set up microphones in the toilets with computers listening for splash sounds that then alert a security guard who has to listen to it as well?
I wouldnt put it past the EU parliament tbh lol.

Stupid feminists and their crazy ideas.
Next time you know they demand the male population to stop being....... men or manly. Like we need to cut off our manhood, dress like girls, cry over everything, polishing nails, women taking over men's bathrooms (ohh... already happening), becoming transgender, watching Twilight, do the household and so on....

But then again, Sweden: where more and more is illegal for men. Like having sex without a condom is illegal (how they make children is beyond me then). Is there an opposing voice? What would be the opposite of feminists?

The solution:


The sorry sods!
