I was hoping to find an answer to this....The problem with how women perceive chauvanism is that it is so damned subjective. I hold a door for one, I am chauvanistic....for another, just a gentleman. I think women for the most part enjoy shoes a little too much....to one chauvanistic....to another, just an astute observer.

The list is mostly cribbed, but it deals with most light male/female issues handily...The toilet seat thing. I wish some woman could tell me why this is Such A Big Deal all the time.

Cos the porcelain of the toliet bowl is cold and we sit on it and we get cold and in general we women are delicate creatures!!!!!!!!!!

Theres a seat on the toilet on hinges and it is supposed to be down - no reason just is - and we are women therefore we are right - its easier not to argue!

Plus who wants to look at the bottom of the bowl when you're brushing your teeth? You men aren't always the cleanest of creatures--best just to put the cover down and hide the evidence!

It's always fun to walk into your own bathroom in the middle of the night, not turn on the light (because you know where the toilet is by heart), proceed to sit down and have an instant butt bath. It's even worse if one follows along the "cleanliness" line of thinking and the person who left the seat up wasn't considerate enough to wipe off the bowl rim. That makes for a double EEEEEWWWWWW!!!!!!!!

(No, I'm not speaking about Beerman as he has always put the seat down. He had older sisters who would have probably pummeled him if he hadn't learned the seat down rule at an early age.)

... proceed to sit down and have an instant butt bath.

Either your toilet is really big or your butt is really small!

See, that is the beginning of the issue...The whole "well I stagger into the bathroom and don't check so..."
argument.

I have, on occasion, staggered half sleeping into the powder room with a powerful urge to release some carrot juice and green tea(right!) and when I do, I feel around to see if the seat is down, and then I lift it up...I actually have to defy that green monster, Gravity. He works for you girls. Why can't you just feel around?

And since we're on the subject, and I am new and somewhat protected by "dumb new guy" friendliness, Why do women go out woefully underdressed for the weather, and then complain that they are cold? Yes, you are damned hot! But you are just as hot with this coat that I asked you to wear (and that I secretly squirrelled away in the backseat for when you complained).

These two things, and others, I cheerfully record for posterity. I love all youse gals...I just don't get some of the things that you do.

Just piss all over the toilet seat a few times and your lady will soon be leaving it up for you.

Prolbem solved
