London photo of the day: a big issue

bigissue

Well, I think public urinators are a big issue, anyway. (A less pleasant vista from the top of a double-decker bus than yesterday’s photo.)

    i always want to point at them and shout how disgusting that is….

    While there’s certainly a factor of drunkenness involved, it certainly doesn’t help that to a first approximation there are no longer any public toilets in London. Once you’ve left the pub, you’re on your own till you get home unless you’re going through a railway (not Underground) station.

  • Yet somehow, women are able to manage, even with the lack of public toilets.

  • RogerBW

    Well, sometimes.

    I suspect they’re just hiding better when they do it.

    No, mostly. Yes, some women crouch between parked cars or in other spots; but, really, they are by far the minority. It seems like males feel like it is their right to pee wherever, including upslope on the sidewalk against any handy building. Maybe they should just take advantage of the toilets at the pub before they leave? And then hold it?

  • RogerBW

    I don’t know what’s going askew, then. I see proportionally about as women as men vomiting in public when I’m heading home late.

  • That’s disgusting, too. But it’s a lot harder to hold in vomit than urine.

    Vomiting is a long way from pulling out your weenie in public. People will sympathize with vomiting, especially as you’re feeling sick and you can’t stop it once it starts. Pee is something that we learn from childhood is unwelcome in a public place.

    I suspect that men are so used to peeing in front of other men at urinals that they think, “What the heck?” when they take a notion to decorate the urban outdoors.
