German judge defends right of men to pee standing up

“Despite the increasing domestication of men in this regard, urinating while standing up is still widespread,” (the judge) wrote…

…It is not uncommon to find home-made signs in German bathrooms commanding men to adopt a seated position.

  • Real men don’t need to be told how to pee, especially by women or leftist eunuchs.

      If I saw a sign like that I’d piss on the floor, just because. It’s a man’s privilege. And maybe I’ll wash my hands after and maybe I won’t.

    That this nonsense even made it to court says everything. I do get amused when I read or hear about the nutty zealots in Europe determined to make men squat to pee, since I remember that in Senegal the men did squat to pee while the women peed standing up. Since it was most often done outside in the open you could not help but notice. I wondered if it was another Muslim custom or just a local one and never did find out.

    Image #2 is the “Justin Trudeau Squat”.

    • I actually interpret that picture as an instructional on not wearing baseball caps backwards.

      • Uncle_Waspy

        Yeah, I picked up on that too. The backwards baseball cap is universally understood to mean a**hole.

          If you use one to keep crap of your head at work, sometimes you gotta reverse it to keep it outta yer way.

          • Uncle_Waspy

            Absolutely true. I’ve done the backwards cap too, back in my Xylene huffing days.

            But you get the gist that majority of guys doing that, outside the factory/shop, are rebel wannabees.

    So women sit and todays progressive males squatt and in the name of equality the rest of us will have to do like wise?I will not sit for this.

  • FactsWillOut

    This is what government is all about.

  • tom_billesley

    You can tell which men will stand to pee – they are the ones who reverse their cap.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    If I ever saw one of those signs, I’d pee all over the floor like a tomacat.
    While laughing!

    • Exile1981

      just claim you didn’t understand the sign because you don’t understand German.

      • Actually that sign is Swedish.

        They ain’t Vikings any more 🙁

          Yeah, this…………..

      “If you can hit this sign, the fire dept. needs you”

      • Uncle_Waspy

        “We aim to please… aim too, please.”

  • Dana Garcia

    How about a compromise?

    Any position is cool, just don’t piss on the floor. Picky, I know.

    My bartender used to complain about cleaning the men’s restroom. I suggested he install a truck-style rear-view mirror so guys with a large equator could see what was happening in the southern regions.

    • FactsWillOut

      I guess it was a tavern where no women went.
      The ladies room is always a bigger disaster area than the mens room.

        Not in a waterfront dive.

    Men’s pissing standng up is a hot topic in Islamic jurisprudence:

    and of course, would you not guess, is soon to be outlawed in Sweden:

    But the water is so cold…and deep…

  • Censored_often

    This article pisses me off.

  • UCSPanther

    Apparently some washrooms are fitted with a speaker that barks at men to “sit down”.

    If I ever run across one of those, I’m going to pour my “Kidney Coffee” all over it…

  • Hard Little Machine

    I’m pretty sure Slate ran an article on the ‘correct’ way to pee. Without irony.

  • Richard_Romano

    If I saw a sign like that, I’d pee on the sign and then standing up. How’s that?

  • Bataviawillem

    Due to a back injury I can’t do any heavy lifting, so my doctor told me to sit down.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Men must stand up for their rights.

    I am a woman and I am ashamed and angry at the ‘attack’ on all things male. The most disturbing is the government encouragement of the scourge of single mom homes. They are not fit for boys.

  • RevnantDream

    Don’t they know the world is a mans urinal?

  • Clausewitz

    I seem to remember not too long ago that when you told a guy they had to squat to pee, it was an insult.
