This is a new age we're living in, where gender norms are being flipped on their heads, upsetting the previously established status quo. No longer are men expected to be alpha males, throwing their weight around with a puffed out chest.
Look, we all do it at one point or another and there's an infinite number of reasons why, so let's turn to the internet to hear what they have to say.

Suddenly, Mommy And Daddy Aren't The Ones Cleaning
When you are the one cleaning the bathroom, you realize how nasty the floor gets from splashing
Yeah I started when I moved out and I had to clean my own toilet. Also it was never a problem until I grew too tall to not splash.
I started because when I was drunk I would sway from side to side and spray everywhere.
I came here to say the same. I also learned to just sit facing the wall and straddling the seat when u gotta pee. You get the extra benefit of being able to lay your head down on the tank if you need to.
I did have a girl break up with me because I didn't stand but whatever.
100% Accuracy, Every Time
I sit if I have to go in the middle of the night when I'm still groggy. it's just easier.
Not only that, but you don't have to turn on the light to aim and blind yourself
Once I realized how much splash happens when standing up.
Just look at the floor in a public restroom. It's not entirely because people have sh-t aim, piss splashes and aerosols everywhere
Drain The Snake
Idk if it's just me but, you know how you always hear "you can never get the last drop out when you pee and it always just leaks out later"? I realized the last drop always came out whenever I got done peeing and then sat down. That doesn't happen to you when you sit when you pee, I'm not a physiologist but my theory is when you stand you bend or kink the lines somehow and it doesn't allow you to get the last drop out. But if you sit it allllll comes out and there's no rebellious drip.
Sitting while peeing is superior and I'm never going back.
Seems Like You Didn't Really Have A Choice
Grew up with females, I only learned that you could pee standing at 10 years old
Get That Little Bit Of Extra Learning In
Started when I was a teen, easier to keep reading the inevitable book I was always carrying around. Now it's a phone, but same principle.
Well, At Least You're Honest
If someone invents a toilet that lets me pee while lying down, I would use it.
Before that, sitting will have to suffice.
A Fork In The Road Of Life
I'm 6'4 the height gives more distance for poor aim or an untimely fork to find a wall.
Just can't chance that sh-t anymore.
EVERYTIME it's forked both streams or even sometimes 3 have completely missed.
Line Up Your Sights
My mom yelled at me for having sh-t aim
"its not a gun TOM, look straight ahead and do IT"
That Logic Holds Tight
It keeps the toilet clean. No splashed piss on the rim or the floor. I can read for a few mins. If it's dark, I don't have to turn the light on and mess up my sleepiness. If I feel a poo coming, I'm already in battle position. It's designed to sit on. Why deny it?
In Today's Day And Age, This Must Be The Real Reason
When I'm at work and want to play a game on my phone, these cheeks are hitting that seat until my legs feel like tv static.
