Angilion, do you honestly have nothing better to do than to get on this site and complain about the illiteracy of others? Perhaps you could stop being a troll? No one wins an online debate, and I hardly think IAB is the place to flaunt your literary prowess, especially if you are as proficient as you make yourself out to be.

Angilion shut up and get a life, get out of the basement, run around outside, go to the park, or something.


I'm sure it comes as a surprise to you, but some people are able to think and write quite quickly. A handful of very short posts on a forum therefore doesn't take up anywhere near as much of their life as it would do for you.

I know you have 2300+ posts but quadri-posting might get you banned.


Replies to different posts. Should I wait for other people to make replies in between, in case I offend semiliterate people who are overwhelmed by the idea that one person could write more than a few words in a few minutes?

I'd rather be banned than semiliterate. I'm not going to dumb down to suit the lowest common denominator. That would be patronising.

Also, I was referring to the fact that the cut-off is less than the character count as you reply. So I cut my posts down to squash them into the 1000 character limit...and the last 10-50 characters are cut off anyway.

avoid the debate piss in the bathtub also solves the aiming issue some of you seem to have...


A fair and practical solution!

Umm...Anglion, the cutoff is there for a reason. No one want's to read that much.


I find it a sad comment on the level of literacy in society that ~200 words is widely considered to be as much as anyone could possibly want to read.

Your extremely basic error only makes it sadder. The rules for the use of an apostrophe in English are extremely simple in almost all cases, yet a very large number of people whose first or only language is English don't understand them.

Cut-off strikes again:

Equality is much simpler than sexed roles, which change over time and in different places.

Oh and I just want to say- chivalry can exist. It just has to go both ways.


Chivalry is a medieval code of honour. I don't like medieval sexed roles.

Hold the door open for her, pull out her chair. Make her feel like a lady.

Bring him his beer at the end of the day or have dinner ready when he gets home sometimes. Remind him that he's your man.



Right...so when I had dinner ready for my girlfriend when she got home (we worked varying shifts - first one in cooked), I was a woman and she was a man.

No. I reject your sexist stereotyping.

It's little things like this that people seem to forget about because of stupid ideals that aren't about equality but about too much pride to just be a loving person.


Ironic, as you must dismiss the concept of "person" in order to have sexed roles.

Dang, why y'all gotta make it so complicated?


Equality is

Really? REALLY? Have you checked under your toilet lid lately? I don't care if you have to swab that poo, THERE --WILL-- BE PISS THERE. It's the result of splattering because men are doomed forever to piss into a bowl from a distance.


No, it isn't. Not enough force in the splatter to propel diluted piss against gravity out of the bowl and up onto the lid in a vertical position.

Splatter on the underside of the *lid* is likely to be the result of flushing with the lid down. The downward force of the flushing water is far, far greater than the downward force of a man's pee.

Splatter on the underside of the *seat* is more likely to result from a person sitting down to pee. The pee carries very little distance before hitting the very rigid, waterproof inside of te toilet - it therefore splashes a lot more, easily enough to reach the underside of the seat.

Physics beats your casual stereotyping. The pee on the underside of your seat

Men require the seat up; women do not.
Therefore, men should put the seat back down.

Debate over.

But then again, these are the same men who take dumps in public restrooms and never flush, so... Sorry, fellow ladies, it's a losing battle.



If you ever learn what sexual equality is, you'll realise that it doesn't have to be a battle and both "sides" can win. I hope you gain that wisdom in time.

I live with two roommates, a guy and a girl and we've had endless conversations about leaving the toilet seat up.

What we've come up with is a collective reason WHY Guys should put the seat down after using it...

Because seriously, what's the worst case scenario here for the guy? What, at 4 in the morning you're going to stumble into the bathroom and forget to put up the lid? More likely than not, we're going to have to clean that for you anyway...

Think about it from our point of view! It's the middle of the night, we're still asleep and we have to find our way into the bathroom. We don't want to turn the lights on, because it burns like a b@$@#ch and I'm sure as h ell not going to go feeling around for it and so we take the blind leap of faith and get an as s full of cold water. Not cool.

It's only fair guys...if you love your ladies, please! Just give it a flick down! takes 2 seconds...

Also I always close the lid when I flush..*shudder*

men would still have to lower it to poo. also, if you just get a pet then we all have reason to close it every time we are finished

As a target? :)

@keith2> I don't think that's how toilets work


That's not specifically how they work, but it's how Newtonian physics works. Since the flushed water is travelling at a negligable proportion of the speed of light, Newtonian physics applies extremely well.

So yes, flushing with the cover up will result in a mist of the contents of the bowl being vigourously sprayed around the room. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Forcing water down into the bowl, i.e. flushing, will result in an equal force upwards. That force is more than enough to propel small droplets up out of the bowl at various angles and quite some way up into the air.

I love how the i-a-b community likes to argue with each other about EVERYTHING at ANY given opportunity. The simple placement of a piece of plastic has somehow polarized everyone here as much as any religious or political debate ever has. God...


You're missing the point. The issue is not the placement of a piece of plastic. It's whether or not men should be required to inconvenience themslves to always ensure that it is placed for the convenience of women. It's the inequality and the assumption of entitlement that's the issue. The toilet seat is trivial. The attitude is not.

Regardless I look before I sit, but come on guys is it really that taxing?


No, it is not really that taxing to check the position of the toilet seat and move it is required.

So why are you arguing that men should have to do it every time and women should never have to do it? Do you think women are so much less capable than men?

Do you not see how irrational you are being when you argue that men should always check and move so that women never have to and then make that comment about it being so taxing for men? You very rarely see a man demanding that the toilet seat is always left up. It's very rarely men saying that it's too taxing for them.

If you think it isn't taxing, why can't you do it without complaining, *like almost every man does*?

Maybe us girls don't want to touch the toilet...because they're kind of um...gross?!

It's common courtesy.



You have just argued that it's common courtesy to require men to do something gross so that women don't have to.

Have you ever heard of a concept called "sexual equality"? Or perhaps a related concept called "treating women as adults, like men, and not as children"?

[..]so the girl doesn't have to touch the underside of the lid, which presumably only has male pee on it anyway.


Why do you presume that?

As much as I believe in equality, I still like a bit of chivalry.


Gendered chivalry is mutually exclusive with sexual equality.

Any man can feel free not to be chivalrous, but just don't expect me to like you as much.


Any woman can feel free to want special treatment for being a woman, but just don't expect me to like you as much.

If you support sexual equality and also like those bits of gendered chivalry involving a man giving special treatment to a woman, the only way you can resolve the discrepency is by also liking women giving special treatment to men in the same way.

In other words, if men are to behave as medieval gentlemen towards women, equality is only possible if women are to behave as medieval ladies towards men. You want that? I

And putting the lid down when you flush doesn't actually stop those microscopic droplets of pee and poo from flying out, it would have to be airtight for that. It just forces them out around the sides, faster.


i) Apart from the ones that hit the underside of the lid, which is a lot of them.

ii) I'd rather have them sprayed out sideways at shin height, mostly onto the floor, than all over the bathroom.

It's not perfect, but it's better.
