Just because you can ??





Here is a simple scenario. You have guests in the house. You are chit chatting, enjoying snacks, and having a good family time. The very next moment you 5 year old son goes to the corner of the living room pull his pants down n starts peeing on the wall. What would you do? You would run and stop him from doing that? Scold him and tell him this isn’t an appropriate. Tell him that you have to use washroom, and its bad manners to pull your pants down in-front of people. If you are strict parent then the kid will get smacked (i would do that J). You would be highly embarrassed in front of your guests. You would laugh it out and try to change the topic, right??

So if I have understood it correct all our parents and their parents and their great grand parents have told us all one thing when we were growing. One has to use washroom to go pee and potty. As kids we followed it as well. Even when the desperate times during classes, we asked for teacher’s permission and went to washroom. Did it ever come to your head that u can just walk out the class and pee in the corridor itself??  Yukkkk.. That is so disgusting. Right?

Then why have we forgotten the basics while growing up. Every day while travelling, i see so many men facing the walls. On the main roads, at traffic signals, near the trees standing and peeing. Without any shame. Without worrying if there are people and females nearby. It just does not matter. Recently I encountered an incident, where this guy with his wife and kid stopped his two wheeler went near the wall and started to pee. While his family looked away pretending to not know him.

As a woman i would really like to say one thing. It is disgusting to see you men being so shameless. To see that you do not respect any female apart from your family. (Because u don’t do it anywhere in your house). Just because you have your back to the road does not mean people can’t see you. Just because you have a smaller bladder than women does not mean whole city is an urinal for you. There is a saying u must have heard few people use, “when a man has to go, man has to go?”  i am sure this does not mean “when a man has go, he can go anywhere.” And trust me there is no woman who would say they are ok with seeing a man urinating in public. (I cannot talk in mens behalf).

So a very sincere appeal to all the men, next time when you think of urinating in public, imagine 10 people standing and watching u. Would you still go for it?? Would you really want to be the one adding that stink to the roads, you cannot bare passing by??  Stop it for the respect of your own privacy, for your own self respect.
