Kudos to you for being brave enough to sing in a public restroom.
when i once accidently when into ladies room they started screaming tht s double standard ri8 there
You have the meaning of double standard completely wrong. A double standard is when one person or group of people does something and it's seen negatively from most of society, and then another person or group of people does something and it's seen indifferently or positively. It's not by the actions taken, but rather the judgement. Take, for example, someone who has sex with multiple people. If they're female they're called a slut and it's "bad" for them to do so, but having sex with multiple people as a man is considered a good thing and will earn you respect from quite a few people.
How his he incorrectly describing a double standard? A woman in the men's room generally doesn't offend or scare any of the men, but a man in the women's room will generally piss them all off and make them think he's a rapist. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but my point is that men wouldn't really care if a woman is in the men's room but women would definitely care if the situation were reversed. That's exactly how 29 described a double standard.
Reminds me of the shower scene in Elf... ... Which, by the way, is affectionately known to my roommates as the "rape song." After listening to the lyrics, I have to agree with them. What a terrible song to have in a Christmas movie.
no no no! that song isnt about rape. think of the context of the song. it was written around the 50s where it was so scandalous if a girl left a man's house by herself (i believe theres a line that says, "what would the neighbors think" or something like that). she wants to stay, and says so many times, but is afraid of what people will think. lady gaga and joseph gordon lewitt (i believe thats his name) performed a version of the song that was surprisingly good. the roles are reversed. doesnt sound as rapey does it? it's only what our minds are conditioned to think that makes people believe hes trying to rape her.
One time at basketball camp I accidentally went into the men's room (it was like 8:00 in the morning) and my first thought when I saw the urinals was "why are there urinals in the girls bathroom?" It took me a good 10 seconds to realize, and by then I was already peeing. Luckily no one walked in
Just a couple weeks ago I went to see Anchorman 2 and had to pee. I was so excited about the movie I walked into the guys bathroom and didn't see the urinals, but I did notice that there were less stalls than usual. When I opened the door I saw the urinals and got scared. It happens.
I did that once in primary school, and it's stuck with me since. Sorry to hear OP
