Urinating Standing Up May Soon Be Illegal in Europe

Urinating Standing Up

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.

If upright male urination becomes too politically incorrect to tolerate in Western Europe any longer, legal citations may soon begin flying. The Naked Scientists website notes that 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. UPI reports that supporters also believe sitting while urinating will reduce potential prostate issues and bolster the opportunity for a longer sex life.

    its like they don't know how disgusting women's restrooms are compared to men's.

    What the heck do the Dutch care? Most the men Pee outside in public while standing. Seen this so know what I am talking about.

    These brainwashed know it alms are destroying the world.

    When pay toilets came out; many store owners had a nasty little problem on their hands when disgruntled patrons showed their disdain for this travesty in dressing rooms. I'm sure the new European rule will meet with equal disdain and similar nasty situations!

    Are you serious? With all the problems in the world, all the serious problems that really need attention, the people of the world are going to flip out about whether or not a man should be allowed to stand or made to sit while he takes a wee? And there is an issue being made out of this, why? How many centuries have men been going standing up? Amazing. We have GMO's poisoning food by genetically altering it and then bathing it in pesticide, people living on the streets and children going hungry….but nevermind all that. Let's focus on how men are supposed to use the bathroom.

    This is another Muslim thing as Muslim men aren't allowed to urinate standing. Just another reason to first urinate standing before sitting down to do the other part:-)

    Only if both parties are white, any biracial sex is ok with the libbies. But as we all know, the leftists hate white men.

    Liberals won't be happy till they can follow everyone around telling them what to do, what to eat/drink, what to think and who to sleep with. Except for Muslims. You must leave Muslims alone. Even though they treat women and gays like crap, it's okay. They are Muslim.

  16. Christopher Kassl

    Anyone who doesn't believe that there is a feminist imperative to attack and denigrate men's habits should follow this post down the rabbit hole. Fuck feminists. Fuck them right in the ear.

    I would PISS on this law while standing with my dick in my hand.

  18. Suzanne Sittig-Gerard

    In our American homes we have sitting only facilities. How many of the guys in our homes sit to urinate?
    Couldn't we reserve making laws to things more important and more even remotely enforceable?

    I guess some men do sing when they piss.. { sings – signs } But you know what I have had my girls come out and ask to go somewhere else because the girls toilets have Blood & shit all over them so I say to you women clean your own ass up before you worry about mine.

  21. Ryan Fowler

    I say they should just start displaying protest by public, standing urination. Just…take a piss on the fucking sidewalk! =)

  22. Ed Castillo

    @Mark; Your comment is the Gloria Steinem feminist dream. When I was a kid i remember hearing the saying, "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle". i think it was attributed to a feminist named Irina Dunn. I may be wrong. But this was an early feminist slogan. It is derived from an anti-God saying.

  23. Sheryl Doiron

    I'm a woman and even I think this is stupid. How the heck would you enforce this. As for hand hygiene, you are supposed to be WASHING THEM to start with. This is the government sticking its nose in yet another place it doesn`t belong. How about you go focus on some real issues regarding your country that would actually improve the lives of your citizens, rather than worry about what pose they take relieving themselves. You know….reduce poverty, increase equality, etc….geesh…dumbest government concern I`ve seen in a long time.

  24. Sam Soheylee-Arasi

    How the hell would you enforce such a thing?

  25. Clive Smith

    I shall take great pleasure in peeing all over anyone who tries to force to to do this – I will def give them something to protest about – as if we have not got enough trouble in the world, retards come up with this!

  26. Steve Cobham

    How is this going to happen 'soon'. It's a few members of a Swedish county council – hardly an influential grouping, is it?
    Lazy journalism.

  27. Aidan Donnelly

    I remember all the crap about how much a stay-at-home lady was worth in monetary terms – I think they came out somewhere around twice the Primie Minister of the UK earned then. If we want to get down to basics – it's a lot cheaper for a man to hire a cook/cleaner and a woman when the need arises.As for this latest lunacy – ever been in a French 'hole in the floor toliet – yukk. Make this mandatory in the eu and mken will find their own ways to protest – it's called 'dirty protest' and cleaning up will be no fun ;)

    And just how are they going to enforce this. Have a cop standing in the men's restroom to watch us take a piss.

  31. Libertarian Amazon

    Obviously they need Cheerios and Fruit Loops during the formative years to teach proper aim if men are leaving puddles on their own bathroom floor.

  32. Kloo Tooyoo

    Vicki Wiesner Carter < yep. every assault on individual freedoms is an important one. We must all act alike, think alike, live alike, and die alike. true equality will only be achieved when we eradicate unauthorized thinking.

  33. Devon Pfister-Pippin

    WHO CARES IF THEY STAND. I would stand too. Please don't you have better things to discuss.

  34. Jeremy Schoenberger

    I always thought the guys ought in Europe were pussies, but if they let this fly, that'll pretty much seal the deal on the evidence, huh?

  35. David Wilkinson

    was it not the leader of the Left Party a few years ago who, while quite drunk, wet herself at the theatre and sat in the aisle waving her wet nickers around to dry them?

  36. Yuan Verminator

    And what is puzzling is feminazis obsession with the way males pee. And they said feminazis aren't fascists and sexist?

  37. Mark Neil

    This just goes to show how little feminists actually have to fight against in western nations… when forcing men to sit down to pee is of enough importance as to take up time with lobbying for laws and picketing. And we're told feminists are about equality, not oppressing men? How exactly does controlling how we pee NOT constitute a form of oppression (even if it's a minor one, it's a start. It's one more nail in the coffin)? What comes next, our diet (for our own good, you know)? Perhaps a return of prohibition, but only for men?

  38. Mark Neil

    Aidan Donnelly No kidding. Nothing quite says "pee on the seat" like some Nazi demanding you sit down so you don't pee on the seat.

  39. Snr Capon

    In my company, there are only regular toilets… who cares, I still stand to pee!

    Supid feminist don't realize we can't sit and pee, it's biologically not easy to put your penis inside and not touching the edges… digusting!

    No, really, FUCK YOU feminazis! go spread your fake stats about education, wage gap, rape, domestic violence (YEAH, They are ALL incorrect stats, random picked number out of random studies to prove whatever you like, especially men are dogs and we are to blame for everything going wrong in you pathetic lives)… let me pee where and how I want!

    In England, stupid feminists managed to remove the outdoor men toilets allowing to pee standing up, because THEY didn't have the same possibility! so now, in festivals or anywhere else, men have to go in 'normal' toilets just because idiot gynocentric bitches couldn't handle the fack that it was easier for men to pee… no queue…

    really FUCK FEMINISTS!

    Looks like Europe is taking a page from Bloomberg's playbook; Can't fix the economy, so look important passing stupid laws about peoples' behavior!

  43. Jay Ronson

    This the is the government's version of "make work" projects. I am sure we will catch male politicians in the future with terrible scandals of peeing standing up. I A WORLD IF UNIVERSAL STUPIDITY, PEEING STANDING UP WILL BE A REVOLUTIONARY ACT.

  44. John Edward

    Haha! I can see the court trials for that> "Mr. Smith, you have been charged with Upright urination. How do you plea?" What's next? Upright sexual positions?

  45. Shiraz Kaleel

    How could it be stupid, Michael? It is more sanitary – less spraying of urine on the floor and on one's clothes.

    So it looks like Europe is coming to think like Muslims, since Islamic etiquette forbids urinating while standing up, and praying while one's clothes are soiled with urine! Call it creeping Shariah if you will, lol!

  46. Anonymous

    Bwahahah! "Stay classy" I love that expression!

    Now, actually, I've heard contentions the opposite is true — for men, standing up is better for health.

    These women don't care about that though. They'd kill us, rather than put up with a little human nature — as we men sure do.

  47. Anonymous

    That's right. There should be outrage on this basis alone. Like, "We elected you for this? We're paying for this? Shut the hell up, and do something worth the while, before we throw your asses out of office."

    WTF

    Aidan Donnelly That's right. Next there'll want to be paid for breathing — landscaping fees for the C02. :-) I go a million of 'em.

    Actually, they'll pass a law that once married, a husband must relinquish his penis so that it may be grafted onto the wife.

  50. Michael Lenczuk

    And yet when I walk in a bathroom and see puddles under urinals I have to wonder how sad people are. Add in gum and cigarettes, and it shows how classless people are. Maybe the people who started this are the janitors.

  51. Wesley Baugh

    So more skin contact with filthy toilets is better than standing at a urinal and not touching anything but oneself? That makes no sense.

    "UPI reports that supporters also believe sitting while urinating will reduce potential prostate issues and bolster the opportunity for a longer sex life."

    Banning circumcision (male genital mutilation) will reduce mental health problems, erectile dysfunction and will bolster the opportunity for a better and longer sex life. So why are the feminists ignoring that and focusing on peeing while standing up?

  55. Claudio Hutte

    [this is a political opinion]: Fuck feminists attempting to kill our freedom. Nothing will stop us to piss on it, anyway, standing up of course.
