Today’s blog entry is established with the help of my dear friend, Vera. She sent an e-mail last Friday with the subject “A worthy blog subject,” which is Vera-Speak for “Let’s see how your twisted demented mind interprets this.” Here’s what she sent (please note that the spelling errors come from the source, not me – that’s for you Ma!):
"Young women in Australia and Sweden have a new cause: They want men to sit down while urinating. This demand comes partly from hygene concerns – avoiding the spalsh factor-but as reported in The Spectator magazine, “more crucially because a man standing up to urinate is deemed to be triumphing in his masculinity, and by extension, degrading women”."We are hoping this will draw the attention of the world’s media to this ongoing fascist symbol of subjugation. This will be the last generation of males who will employ such tactics of oppression as the urinal. “
Stockholm University is about to ban urinals on campus, and one Swedish elementary school has already removed them.
Once more we have proof that man-kind (or woman-kind, forgive me for being sexist) is no longer worried about their survival. We are no longer foraging for boysenberries and carving arrowheads for killin’ (the killin’ is semi-automated these days). We have a lot of time for contemplation (obviously – I had time to write this nonsense and you have time to read it). No wonder some have grown concerned about the manner in which we urinate in the privacy of wherever!
Folks, this is not about degrading women. This is about control. From the horror of potty training, I’ve learned something valuable. We have absolute control of only two things: 1) what goes in and 2) when and how and where it comes out.
If woman can get men to pee how they want them too, they’ve managed to control men and subsequently the universe. Don’t let it happen. Our hormones are not conducive to Universe Controlling.
