The Toilet Seat Debate by batlesbo The Toilet Seat Debate by batlesbo
To be fair, it only happened to me with male room-mates, but I still wanted to make this little comic for the sheer fun of it :>

I just close the lid as I am used to having cats that will either drink the toilet water or fall into a toilet.

also men may want a lid down for an emergency number 2.

To eliminate the problem, and to place less blame on myself when it eventually does happen, I just pee sittin down. :T (I'm a guy at the moment. So yeah, guys can do that too. ^_^)

I always prefer seat and lid down (animals), and I'm lesbian. In a multiple gender house, it seems to be..just don't whine about it. Although... almost falling into a toilet at 2 in the morning... is quite annoying... and gross. Safe reason = In of diarrhea just lafve the seat down. I have a couple/2 friends. He has a nervous stomach and have like 8 cats and a dog... lid and seat is always down. It's a male/female couple too.

Really simple. Women always sit, while men sometimes sit (when they poop), so the toilet seat goes down.

I have a third suggestion that would also satisfy everyone, especially for these with a larger bathroom. Instead of having a bidet installed next to the toilet, a devise that no one really uses anyway, install a urinal. This will not only avoid any conflict but will also be a great conversation piece every time you have friends over.

I like the lid idea! Don't want all the nasty particles in the air after you flush. Ew! >__<

There is an actual health issue supporting lowering the lid. If you flush without the whole lid down all the bacteria in your poop/pee (yes, pee isn´t sterile after all) fly to the air and land on every surface including your toothbrush. I personally just don´t want to breathe the bacteria of brush my teeth with it.

Cute, but how would it fly if you told homosexual people to just be heterosexual (for some issue) to solve a problem? Doesn't work well in reverse.

No, because we live in a hetero-normative world, and so jokes would not apply in most reversed case, unfortunately.

I am approve this system.  While I was still with my ex-wife, I started putting the whole thing down because I figured if I had lower, it was only fair she should have to lift!  :lol:

I don't know why women get so pissy about having to put down the seat 
If you're rushing that much or you're just not attentive enough to not notice that the seat is up and you fall in you almost deserve that tbh

Couldn't you make the same argument for men? And, furthermore, women face away from the toilet when they are peeing, men face towards it. Therefore, men are more likely to notice that the seat is in the wrong position (since women immediately turn away from it). And, furthermore furthermore, if men pee on the toilet seat it's easy enough to clean it up with a piece of toilet paper, but if a woman falls into a bowl of toilet water (even worse if the person before didn't flush), she has to go through a much more humiliating and disgusting clean up process.

Yes if a man doesn't notice that the seat is up and then sits and falls in that's his fault too
It's not woman exclusive if you're inattentive you're inattentive
Oh wow
Falling into water in a toilet, and then having to wipe the water off when the tip of one's ass makes it into the water of the toilet bowl.
SO humiliating
That MUST be like, the most DEGRADING thing. They should just make women toilets, the patriarchy is suppressing women with toilet seats that are CLEARLY made for men.
It's all the MEN's fault if someone doesn't look at a toilet before sitting on it.
If a toilet's so fucking disgusting why aren't you checking before you sit on it jesus christ

1. Your sarcasm is not witty, it just makes you seem condescending.
2. I wasn't trying to make some speech about the patriarchy and their evil toilet conspiracy, I'm just making a logical argument. It takes the same amount of effort for men and women to lift/put the seat down, but women have more to lose if they make a mistake than men. If it were the other way around, if men had more to lose than women, then I would of course say that the seat should be left up, but that's not the case. I don't hate men or their preferred pissing position.
3. You're acting like a fucking bitch, so stop. Please. I don't like bitches.

You literally have nothing to lose by falling into a toilet, unless you somehow decide to sit in the toilet fully clothed and in one that has piss and shit from the person before. Nobody has more to lose. Everybody falls into a bowl of water.
If somebody fell in and got an infection, it's not even the question that someone caused you to fall in my leaving the seat up: you're just so ignorant of the toilet you're not even cleaning it
Again I reiterate that if the toilet is such a vile and disgusting device, why wouldn't you pay attention to what you're sitting on?
"I don't like bitches"
You should get out while you're ahead. Because I'm not fond of people who pity one gender over the other.

Oh shut the fuck up already! I don't pity one gender over the other! Geez, I'm glad I will never meet you in real life. All I'm saying is that I think most people would rather clean up piss from a toilet seat than piss and feces and God knows what else from your ass. Is that not a fucking fair thing to say?

None of which would be in the toilet if it was actually relatively clean. 
Assuming it would be under a shared, private bathroom.
Nice attention span, btw.

I'm also a lady and have lived with many men who just don't put down the seat and I have never been so inattentive as to fall in.
It's a SEAT, big deal .___.

Somebody actually did a mathematical study of this, if the number of women is equal to or greater than the amount of men in a given household, then the seat should be put down, as it will be needed down for men's nr. 2s and for women all the time. Actually, the amount of men may have needed to be significantly higher than the amount of women to justify leaving it up, but I can't recall by what factor.
Or, as many other commenters have mentioned, the guy can just sit down. 

And that was way too serious for this comic.

because drops will spray around and the seat is wet afterwards, no matter how good you aim... and that is why you should pie while siting to beginn with, because you will not only drop at the seat, but at the floor as well...

Pee, not pie. Pie is a desert and something you eat, you do not want to eat pee, even if it is sterile.
