Huffington PostTake a stand — and sit down for what you believe in. Male representatives on the Sormland County Council in Sweden should sit rather than stand while urinating in office restrooms, according to a motion advanced by the local Left Party. Known as a socialist and feminist organization, the party claims that seated urination is more hygienic for men — the practice decreases the likelihood of puddles and other unwanted residue forming in the stall — in addition to being better for a man’s health by more effectively emptying one’s bladder, The Local reported. But not everyone agrees. “Men scatter urine not so much during the actual urination as during the ‘shaking off’ that follows,” John Gamel, a professor at the University of Louisville, wrote while addressing the issue in 2009. “As a result, forcing men to sit while emptying their bladders will serve little purpose, since no man wants to shake himself off while remaining seated on the toilet.”

Sign me up for some of this legislation. I know, I know, I’m supposed to be a man and be like “peeing standing up is what makes us men!” “Sitting down while you pee is for chicks!” Which is all true and I get it. But you can’t tell me making it a law that everyone has to sit down to pee doesn’t have its benefits. A) I’m lazy. At any given moment in this world if you ask me if I’d rather be standing up or sitting down, I wanna be sitting down. So an extra 30 seconds relaxing on the throne is A-OK by me. And B) Most importantly, it would no longer be completely obvious for dudes when they are taking a shit. Last year I went on vacation with my girlfriend and we stayed at a W hotel. The bathroom had a frosted glass door, which is just highly inappropriate if you ask me. So I had to spend the whole weekend shitting when she was sleeping or out on the balcony or something because obviously when I’m sitting down only one thing is going on. Meanwhile she hid behind the veil of “we sit down for everything.” If I lived in Sweden that vacation would have been infinitely easier. Every time I went into that toilet I coulda been like “Hey sweetheart just remember its illegal for me to pee standing up! I’m not pooping. I swear!”

PS – Whats that dude talking about saying guys can’t shake off sitting down? What does that guy do when he shits? Does he stand up, spin around and shake off standing up? Thats preposterous. I just swinging my junk inside the bowl sitting down no problem
