I’m about to share some useful information with men out there about one of the mysteries of women. One you’ll need to know to avoid unnecessary conflict in the future. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about women from growing up with two younger sisters and, later on, being married for some time it’s this:
They take a long, LONG time in the bathroom.
That’s it! The rest, I’m still in the dark about. But, believe me, this is something important. Something we need to teach our sons early. That way, when your naive little boy takes a girl out on a date for the first time and she excuses herself to use the ladies’ room, he doesn’t eventually end up calling the police to report a kidnapping or, worse, going to investigate.
That can be awkward…
As a result of this, female public restrooms can get a bit overcrowded as they wait their turn. There is the occasional spillover as a result of this. I’ve been to a few events where women would casually walk in and use the men’s room rather than wait in the ridiculously long line outside their own. This is another important thing young boys should be taught. When he’s at a sporting event of concert and this happens, he should be prepared to act natural and avoid common faux pas such as staring, pointing, following or squealing like a girl and hurriedly trying to zip up his pants while the urine is still streaming out.
Trust me. This may sound a crazy idea, but they’ll need to know this. I wish I did.
But, I digress. The lengthy process known as “powdering her nose” is one of the reasons a woman needs to have ample public restroom. In many, more progressive, areas the male/female public restroom ratio may be in favor of females. This is the correct way and will prevent a lot of grief.
However, in some places, like Guangzhou, China, for example this is not the case. There the toilet ratio is 1:1 which, you will agree is unacceptable. The woeful lack of female public restroom facilities has led to long lines, thighs strained from excessive leg crossing and bladders pushed to their limits.
And one woman, Li Maizi, is refusing to take it anymore. Li and about 20 of her college girlfriends, after having their fill of the length of time they are forced to wait to empty, took up posters staged a “Occupy: Men’s Room” protest where they blocked off the men’s toilets in the area.
Men in Guangzhou were forced the feel the brunt of the city’s poor planning by being forced to wait while the women were allowed to ‘go’ first.
Eventually, Li’s protest reached the Chinese capital of Beijing and the media, forcing city officials to cave in and agreed to increase toilet facilities by 50% (It’s a start).
Looks like both man and women in Guangzhou will breathe (And pee) easy from now on.
