Showering

Blog: Showering

One of the perks of drunken (or otherwise intoxicated) conversations with friends is that you discuss subject matter that you otherwise wouldn't in a million years talk about. Admittedly you sometimes have to wade through the odd diatribe about the state of civilized society, or the occasional sobbing confession about the time they hit someone with their car but kept driving. I'd say it's all worth it though because more often than not you end up deep in discussion about small trivialities that you were certain only happened to you. It's always nice not to feel completely isolated and paranoid, in no small part because it decreases the possibility that you might end up like the Unabomber. I only bring this up because I've had several conversations with fellow men and fellows who aren't men (women I believe the term is) and I have only ever heard men admit to urinating in the shower (in varying degrees of regularity) where as I have never heard any women make a similar confession, or respond to that admission with anything other than disgust (in varying degrees of severity). I can't really talk about any sort of observed gender divide at any length without being interpreted as sexist in some way so I'm trying to keep this brief. In conclusion men seem more likely to pee in the shower than women. This does not mean that I think women are inherently more precious than men. It does not mean that I think women have an obligation to act more precious than men. It does not mean that I think women are biologically more pristine. It does not mean that I think women should not be allowed to marry other women. It does not mean that I think women should not be allowed to marry men. It just means that, in my travels, I have encountered no women who will admit to peeing in the shower as readily as some of the men I've known. It is simply for that reason that I think women shouldn't be allowed to vote.
