To Pee or Not to Pee

Is it acceptable for men to leave the toilet seat up? I've asked myself some serious questions lately, but this is among the most important.

AbbaGav wonders why , "In this age of neo-post-feminism, grrrl-power and men who wear earrings in their noses...lowering the toilet seat still considered such an exclusively macho responsibility?"

AbbaGav mistakenly believes that women insist that men lower the toilet seat because we don't want to bother double-checking. Another reminder that men, no matter how "well-trained or well-meaning," can be slightly obtuse.

The seat goes down, gentlemen, and not because we don't have the brains to look first. The seat goes down because we don't want to see what's under it.

The title is in unspeakably bad taste. I know.

Good manners; if men put the seat down for us then should we not put the seat up for them? So perhaps it's not manners at all but like you say, cleanliness. In fact, to close both seat and top every time would be best. (And perhaps cleaning up after yourself?)
It's a funny subject but one I have always wondered about.(Especially after starting Max on potty training!) For instance, when I visit a bachelor friend of Mike's do I put the seat back up when I'm done? No, for the sake of cleanliness I close it all up.
And then I wonder about those people that leave the toilet open for their dogs to get a drink.....
Personally I would rather put the seat down myself then even step into facilities that are used as a dog's waterhole/mudbath!

I've known a few guys who have no problem leaving the seat the way they found it. It's worth noting, however, that they often attempt to aim through a much smaller target, and often miss.

As if you wanted to read that...

I believe that people should attend to their own needs in regard to WC comportment. If the seat is up and you need it down, you might want to take the time to check, and if you park your heinie on cold porcelain, I hope you enjoy the quick shower you'll be taking. By the same token, if the lid is down and you didn't check, you're going to wet it and yourself...which means you'll have to clean it, and you'll still be taking that shower.

This does not apply if you are single and living alone. Then, you are entitled to have the john situated however in Hell you prefer it, and guests should take care to observe the local conditions.

The toilet, in its natural environment, has its seat in the down position. This, then, means that both men and women should allow domesticated toilets to exist as they would in the wild: with their seats down.

Julie is incorrect. In its natural environment, a toilet does not have a seat. A seat is a modification that humans foisted upon innocent toilets everywhere. This is obviously yet another example of humans playing God with inanimate objects that are harming no-one,forcing them them to a function and a form unlike that granted to them by nature.

Oh Snarky! Just because you don't need a seat most of the time!
