Gender and the Bathroom Debate Part 2 Female’s


On Monday I briefly delved into the long running debate of why do men take so long in the bathroom? I’m now going to shed some light on why women take so long in the bathroom? This is just so the debate is on an equal playing field ready for Friday’s Fun Poll of who takes the longest in the bathroom men or women.

I will again start off by stating that I am going to be very broad and so quite a few generalisations will be made. Everyone is unique and different and will have their own routines and rituals so please remember a lot of these points are going to be generalisations so please don’t get offended.

So now I’ve covered my back on with the debate.

The difference between men and women is quite significant both physically and psychologically there is no doubting that. Yes men and women can both enjoy sports, reading, films and lots of other common interests but there is lots of smaller points of interest that significantly differ from each gender.

These differences can be suggested as being ingrained by social interaction and pressures for example a baby boy is always dressed in blue and a baby girl is always dressed in pink. There’s nothing to say that the colours can be switched around and have a baby boy dressed in pink rather then blue. Hopefully you see where I’m getting at with this point even if I have said it in a confusing muddled way.

Basically I’m saying that society and peer pressure shapes us as people whether we like it or not or whether we admit to it or not. So your there reading this thinking what is this guy chatting about, what does this have to do with women spending more time in the bathroom. Well read on and my pearls of undeniable wisdom will be revealed.

Women spend a long time in the bathroom due to mainly getting themselves ready and comfortable for the day ahead or going out. Unlike men where they mainly use the extended bathroom time to do their business, read and generally relax and escape from the world for while. Women are getting themselves prepared and ready for the world by applying make-up, styling their hair and general self grooming and styling.

This is the slight fundamental difference between men and women. That women use bathroom time to get ready, although I will point out that the trend is changing. Men are now becoming women and to be honest this annoys me. Men should be men. They are supposed to be a bit smelly and ruff around the edges it’s what defines our masculinity, but more and more men are becoming pooffy lady boys who can’t even hammer a nail into a wall. I apologise though I’m going off on a tangent into another social issue which really annoys me, and needs to be addressed significantly before we all end up becoming self obsessed Asexual beings with no gender differences.

Back to why women spend ages in the bathroom.

Taking this theory of women taking time to get ready in the bathroom this can also be applied when women are out in a social situation with other women. It’s the usual scenario and the mystery of why do women go to the toilet together? This is definitely a situation that men find bizarre and peculiar, but the answer is simple. Women go together to the bathroom to talk. They chat about what’s going on with their lives and if there on a double date they talk about the men. Basically women talk about anything and everything.

In thinking about all of this I came to a final conclusion, that women use the bathroom in the same way as men. Both genders use the bathroom to escape from life for a short while. Although the genders differ in the activities they do in the bathroom, for men it’s reading and doing their business. While for women it’s either talking (in groups) or getting ready (make-up, hair etc). But for both genders the bathroom time is a time to escape from life. I guess this is why when it comes to buying or selling a house the bathroom is such an essential room and can either make or break a sale.

As always thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed it and please leave any comments as I’d love to hear from you.
