Somebody put up a sign at my workplace that says "PLEASE BE A GENTLEMEN AND PUT THE SEAT DOWN "


So, in restrooms where it is applicable, should men put the toilet seat down for women? Or is forcing women to put their own toilet seat down the feminist solution?

it's not just about women, sometimes when i need to shit i get irritated by the seat being left up because then i have to put the seat down and i don't want to touch public toilet seats with my bare hands so i have to use toilet paper as a hand shield and listen man that just takes time that i don't have when i'm LITERALLY ABOUT TO SHIT and if dudes just put the seat down i wouldn't have to deal with that

see look feminism benefits men

Just leave it down and clean up if you miss.
Though if people left it up, nobody would have to worry about that in the first place, so no one is right.

There are 2 possible systems: Everybody leaves the seat down vs Everybody leaves the seat like they used it.

You should have a system that minimizes average annoyance, and is as efficient as possible. If everybody puts the seat down, you create an inefficienly: If 2 men want to pee in succesion, the 1st one puts the seat down and the 2nd puts it up, when it's unnecessary (if it were up, neither would need to do any additional work).

In every other case, someone ends up doing necessary work. If a man pees and then a woman comes to pee/shit (or a man to shit), then somone will do work, either the 1st person or the 2nd one. The efficiency is the same, there is 1 unit of work. Same with every other scenario. However, the "2 man peeing" situation gains net work in one case but not on the other one.

A priori, everybody leaving the seat as they used it causes the least amount of work, thus the least amount of annoyances. Plus, a priori, it's the fairest, since both women and men do similar amount of work. If everybody leaves the seat down, then women do no work and men do all of it (i.e it's unfair).

This doesn't take into account the frecuency of each person doing each deed, nor the frecuency women use the bathroom over men, etc. If those are taken into account, and if you value fairness as well as net work, then the conclusion might change

EDIT: It's also the simplest system. You only rely on everybody working for their own best interest (not doing additional work). In the other system, you rely on everybody following the rules. Just 1 man saying "fuck it" and leaving the seat up fucks your system.

It takes what less than a second to put a seat down or up people should just get the fuck over how they find the seat and do what they need when they go into the bathroom.

I always just put the seat & lid down at home.
when it is a restroom at work that women will also use, I'll put the seat down, 'cuz I am a very conscientious person, & I'm used to doing it since I do it at home.
in public I try to avoid touching the seat -- I will piss with it down if I have to -- don't really care since it's a men's restroom & men are gross. fuck you, strange men.

Engineers created the top part of toilets to not allow microscopic matter to fly out so easily onto your toothbrush that happens to be right there. Whether it be due to the piping, or your own shit, you will close both lids, and wash your hands after every use.

Rarely do I agree with El Fat Lard, but this is the damn truth. Close the lid you godless heathens.

I think we should let the seat decide what it wants.

I find lifting the seat to have a piss the most off putting part of the process so I don't really get the whole leaving it down thing to be better - certainly not for me. In terms of it being left up for ladies then a small shunt or nudge and gravity takes care of the rest. 

To think that microscopic shit and piss bacteria won't find it's way out of a closed lid is as mental as my wife thinking rinsing things with fresh water makes them clean.
 
I also generally don't like to take a shit outside of my own bathroom at home - who knows what arse hair or pimpled bum I'm having to share with - tissue paper temporary cover usually needs to make an appearance. 

Tend to use my shoes to do the lifting or falling process for me either way though - a good scoop up with the right toe is all it takes. If I am somewhere that I should be formal then it's 'down' just for manners sake - but I'm bitter about it each time!

Thus I concur that this really is the best system for convenience sake

I don't know, I pretty easily manage to put the toilet seat back down when taking a shit. I haven't fallen in once.

I always put the seat down before I flush because otherwise you create an aerosol of piss and shit particles and that ain't nice.

Toilet seat goes up for manly urination.

It's a simple courtesy to reduce splashback on the underside for whoever cleans it.

For problems like these we may need to look to religious leaders.


When the pope shits in the woods, does he have a secret privy? If so, what is the seat etiquette? Who knows what might happen to a cardinal that leaves the seat up.

If I saw that sign at work I'd deliberately not. 

I'd probably attach it to the seat and piss on it too.

I close the lid but it has nothing to do with gender. It's because I'm not a savage.

it's weird to me that people leave it up actually. I grew up with two sisters, seat was always down at least and lid is usually down as well. also both me and my father always wipe the bowl rim with tissue afterwards just in case.

why don't people put lid down too, then it's fair for everyone. I just lift both seat and lid at once when I need a piss.


only time I see keeping seat up as valid is at work in mens toilets because otherwise there is always that one dumbass who cba lifting and pisses on the seat and makes life hard for anyone coming in after who wants to take a shit. that said, I've been in unisex toilets at some places and you get women doing hoverbutt thing and making a mess of the seat in their own way (different splatter type when dumbass guy is pissing to dumbass lady is pissing)

Men should just leave it down but also remember:

If you sprinkle when you tinkle,
Be a sweetie and wipe the seatie!

the solution is simple all bathrooms should have an equal split of toilets half of them dont have a seat which is the one you dont sit on or shit in this could also be a urinal since women dont need to not sit unless they're weird and the other half of them have seats that cannot be lifted

No, people shouldn't piss and shit on the seat to begin with.

I have to say that in our house we realized that when I stand up and pee in the toilet, the urine and water can splash up to six feet away from the toilet. Its disgusting...especially if you are in a bathroom that has reading material...It's covered in piss whether you want to believe it or not. 

I have found that sitting when you pee (at home) will keep everything so much cleaner that you have to clean up much less. Also, if you close the top of the toilet before you flush you avoid all the splashing that happens when you flush...

and....you never miss in the dark...frankly I had a urinal in my bathroom while living in Thailand and it was awesome.

Everyone should put the lid down before they flush the toilet. Then everyone has something to lift and no-one can complain.

Have none of you ever dropped something like your phone in the fucking toilet?

Hell, they even did this on Mythbusters.
The results of leaving the lid open when you flush is nasty.
