The “hand washing police” (creepy!) have decided that men are grosser than women.
During a meeting last Monday for infectious disease scientists, “researchers who spy on people in public bathrooms” (double creepy!) released a study that showed men have issues when it comes to washing their hands after using public toilets.
“One-third of men didn’t bother to wash after using the bathroom, compared with 12 percent of women” the researchers claimed, basing their findings on over 6,000 people in four big cities.
A spokesman from a co-sponsor of the survey, the Soap and Detergent Association (seriously?), urged men to “step up to the sink”, after holding their weewees at a urinal or taking a dump.
Because women are forced to frequent stalls all the time, we’re probably a lot more likely to realize just how dirty a public bathroom can get—although holding one’s penis and then shaking a stranger’s hand screams ‘unsanitary!’ just as loudly.
So, what is it? Is pee just considered not as dirty to men? Do they simply not care about poo contamination?
Are men really just really f*cking gross most of the time?
…whatever the case, I’m gonna go buy me some Purell and think twice before going into any communial dorm bathroom.
