I know we conservative women say men and women are equal, but we’re not. Every day, we unknowingly suffer. We’re victims of…bathroom inequality.
Let’s face it. Men have it so easy. Thanks to urinals, their bathroom time is short. They don’t have to stand in disgusting public restrooms very long. But with women? It’s a different story entirely. Those who haven’t mastered the art of the midair squat are forced to strategically line the seat with toilet paper. That alone can take up to 30 seconds. Then you have to go through the hassle of finding a place to hang your purse, while ALSO figuring out how to flush without actually having to use your hand to do so. (Many of us have mastered the side kick foot flush. I’m convinced it doubles as a viable self-defense move.)
It’s a burden. A burden Berlin is committed to alleviate. After all, this is the 21st century. This is a matter of gender inequality. Because of that, Berlin officials want to install female urinals across the city. The city’s environmental council even published a 99-page document on this, titled “The Toilet Concept for Berlin.”
This is the same Berlin that has been plagued by Islamic terrorism. Priorities?
All locations that currently have a male-only “pissoir” (public urinal facility) should only exist in combination with unisex toilets, a 99-page city strategy paper called “the toilet concept” concludes.
“In the future urinals which can be used by all genders should be offered,” the paper says.
The provision of urinals for women “could be a subject for the continuation of the [toilet] concept and an opportunity for Berlin to show that it is innovative,” it adds.
I know this may come as a shock to you, but women don’t have thing-a-ma-jigs. (Unless you ask this “queer, trans, nonbinary lesbian.” According to him/her, some women have penises.) I’m not even sure how this would work. Women are incapable of…aiming.
Switzerland currently has a female urinal installed in one of its theaters. It looks something like this:

OK…that looks like a hovering urinal but…I still don’t get it (and what about the women who don’t have the quad strength?) If we tried to use urinals like men, wouldn’t there be a lot of…splash? And what about our pants around our ankles? How the heck does a woman straddle that thing with pants around her ankles? Unlike men, we have nothing to casually whip out and aim.
I really don’t see how this would be more convenient for women. I think there’s an ulterior motive here, and it involves environmentalists. I’ve seen some reports about how women waste waaaaaay too much water flushing. Female urinals would result in less water waste. I think that’s Berlin’s true motive. After all, the environmental council developed the 99-page potty report. They’re hitting two birds with one stone. They’re addressing “gender inequality” AND saving the planet. Yay them!
