This is a question Sexism

Freddie Woo tells us: Despite being a well rounded modern man I think women are best off getting married and having a few kids else they'll be absolutely miserable come middle age.

What views do you have that are probably sexist that you believe are true?

I dont like sexism.
I am female and have a male partner. Therefore gender roles now play a part of my life.

As a youf I was strongly opposed gender specific roles, when I was at school I refused to help clear out the art store cupboard. “Just because I am female does not mean I will do domestic chores - This is SEXIST.” I even refused to wear make-up or ‘fancy’ underwear for many years, under the impression these were bindings of gender repression. I was one of those types.

Now in my adulthood I find myself, wearing make-up and underwear to look nice for my man. I pick up and wash dirty clothes that don’t belong to me, cook the dinner of his choosing, I sew on buttons, iron his clothes, clean up mess I have not made, ask him to take the bin out, move the heavy suitcase, open jars for me, to fix my bike. All these tasks I am perfectly capable of doing myself and likewise as is he. So, why do I do it? Because, I like doing things for him and I like him doing things for me and I like saying thank you to him too.

We do not conform the ‘1950s domestic bliss’ ideal either – He studies and I work – I earn more money than him and I expect I will continue to do so for many years to come. He wants to get married and have children – I want to be financially secure before starting a family and I don’t want to get married. He likes dancing to romantic songs, I do not. When I get upset I usually get angry and rarely cry, when he gets upset he gets angry and has been known to cry. I don’t what to paint myself as some kind of hard faced fishwife type and he my wet milk fed hubby, either.

Doing domestic chores I could be accused of reinforcing an outdated and outmoded female stereotype, which has enslaved women into centauries of domestic servitude. Why do I do ‘house work’ because I like it – I like to live in a clean house, I like to look after my man.

I am a woman but my head is not filled with endless hormonally driven thoughts of clothes, shoes and chocolate. No more than it is about high strength larger, the political situation in the middle east, smoking, the value of the £ against the € or $, what I want to watch on TV tonight, what is in the fridge, the last time I had sex, the next time I will have sex, what book will I read next, that I must ring my best friend and I must sort out cancelling my gym membership.

But one thing that I fail to understand – why do men like to urinate around the toilet? Yes, I urinate generally into the toilet (unless I am caught very short) not around the toilet then I take a moment to flush it away, nor do I leave it for the next person like a golden offering.

Is this a hanger on from the times when it was necessary mark territory?

if you had a cock you would understand
they can't be trusted to aim, and even when you are straight down the middle they change their mind and piss on your knee.

But why
not flush the toilet after?

If it's yellow, let it mellow and all that
And the sparkly mellow yellowness reminds us of childhood summers spent scrumping in orchards of red and gold...

An inconWEEnient truth
We're only saving the planet by not using water unnecessarily...just like we keep being told to.

Also in support of previous comments sometimes they aim themselves where the hell they like irrespective of the hand that holds the weapon...a bit like Americans I suppose.

Or half of it will go a little way off-centre while the other half goes at a right-angle, straight into the bath.

As a bloke,
this drives me bonkers also. From observing male behaviour in public restrooms, I have concluded it's because many men do not like to look at themselves whilst performing thus making aiming impossible.

Not flushing usually depends on the individual - some swear by the, "let it mellow if its yellow" tenet.

NB: I do not make a habit of observing male behaviour in public restrooms - I am merely observant.

I agree with this.
But at the same time, I want to know - What the bloody hell is so hard about sitting down?
A lot of men use the excuse that it's "impossible to aim" and all that bollocks, when they could simply sit down and not have to worry about it.

No it doesn't make you look girly, it's taking a piss not showing your cock in the window (unless you do, in which case you're forgiven).

Another thing is, whenever I go into a public restroom, WHY, just WHY do I find urine all over the toilet seat when NO ONE is using the urinals? I've been to public toilets where there's a whole line of urinals that aren't being used, then some twat comes out of the stall and I go in to find piss EVERYWHERE. It drives me right barking mad, sometimes.
