Potty Parity: Physical or Behavioral Issue?

Female Urinal

Female Urinal

Potty parity? It makes you just want to shake your head.

Most women would have you believe this is a physical problem due to the differences between men and women. After all, men can simply walk up to a urinal and do their thing, then leave. After washing their hands, of course. Women must lock themselves in a stall and wrestle with half a dozen garments designed to make them look more attractive before they can answer the call of nature. Then they must adjust their makeup, check for lipstick on their teeth, brush their hair, spray their hair, apply more perfume and make friends with at least three other women in the room, exchange dirty details about their husbands and / or boyfriends, recheck the makeup, make sure they are not trailing a stream of toilet paper behind, and eventually return to the man they left a half hour earlier, who is patiently waiting near the ladies room door, wondering if she had already come out while he was in the men’s room. Or perhaps she was mugged.

There is an unwritten protocol for male restroom behavior, which seems to be learned by osmosis. One must maintain a laser focus on the task at hand. You queue up if necessary, no talking, and await your turn. You stare directly at the wall, looking around is not allowed, talking is forbidden. You quickly dispatch with the unwanted substance, flush and quickly move to the sink, where you wash and leave.

If there is a queue, you must take first available. Stall or urinal.

As you can see, the problem with long queues at ladies rooms are more a function of evolution gone awry. Women tend to go to the bathroom in groups, men avoid going in groups.

But what the feminists among us desire is not an equal number of restrooms, for that is the norm. No, they want more ladies rooms than mens rooms. They call this parity? Existing public places will not add more restrooms for women, they will simply convert former male bathrooms to female. Or they will simply lock down a few male only bathrooms to increase the ratio.

I am surprised that the Progressive nannies, who are into taxing away sugar and salt have not thought of a potty tax. Let’s make the first three minutes free and levy a tax of, say, $1 per minute over the first three. That will cut down on the potty chatter in the ladies rooms and prevent the preening and primping. Works for cabs, right? How often do you sit in a cab after you reach your destination and discuss frivolities while the meter is running?

Or, simply rip out a few stalls and install female urinals like the picture above. Are women to good for this?

This is simply a behavioral problem. Nothing physical about it.

Just shut up and pee, mam!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
