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.


Reddit user, u/Tow_The_Line_000, curiously wanted to know:

Men who pee sitting down, when did you start and why?

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

CalgaryXTC

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.

Wobble Hose

I started because when I was drunk I would sway from side to side and spray everywhere.

My_Dog_Rolls_In_Poo

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

Splish, Splash

Once I realized how much splash happens when standing up.

It's nasty.

Just look at the floor in a public restroom. It's not entirely because people have sh-t aim, piss splashes and aerosols everywhere

ssshhhhhhhhhhhhh

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

Pure laziness.

Whatsareality

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.

tupeeonahamster

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.

Reasons to be single #1... you avoid monkeypox, apparently.

#2... all your money is yours. And Uncle Sam's.

#3... more room in bed.

#4... the list is endless.

Not to be down on love, love is great.

But love doesn't have to be the full journey.

Feel-good dramas and hysterical comedies can leave an indelible impression on audiences and make them want to come back for multiple viewings.

The films with inspiring storylines, brilliant cinematography, or Oscar-worthy performances are the most memorable.

But there are films that have the opposite effect on moviegoers, making them wish they never saw them in the first place, despite critical acclaim in their respective genres.

There's nothing more unsettling than waking up in the middle of the night.

Particularly if what woke you up was a loud, unsettling creepy sound.

The only thing that could make the experience more nightmarish is opening your eyes and seeing something that makes you jump out of bed.

Most of the time, what ends up scaring the living daylights out of us is nothing more than a pile of laundry we forgot to put away or a cat's shadow, and find ourselves laughing about it weeks or even days later

Others however, haven't been so lucky, waking up to discover they were actually in legitimate danger.

People Break Down The Times A Bully Absolutely Went Too Far

Bullying seems to be a concept that has always been around. It comes in all forms, and in varying degrees.

Sometimes, the bullying can be mild and temporary. That doesn't make it okay, but it does make the bullying easier to deal with.

Other times, the bullying is harsh, and can even go too far. Sometimes, that can mean relentless teasing. Othertimes, it can mean that a bully took their torment to a new level, even proceeding into physical violence.

Whatever the case, when bullying goes too far, it sticks with you. Sometimes, you get revenge. Other times, you just deal with it until you can find a solution. Whichever method you choose, you will never forget it.
