Is this a male/female divide issue? I was having this discussion the other day with friends, and while the men saw it as the most natural thing in the world, the women thought it abhorrent.
I suggested to Mrs MSE that we place a few of our easy to pick-up and put down books in the downstairs loo, and was initially met with horror. She added it would be horrible if someone else picked it up afterward.
I’m not sure why, but when it comes to scatological issues, the gender divide is bigger than ever (regular readers will remember my Are you scared to poo? blog).
Do let me know.
