Get over it, for your children. It is way more sanitary to keep the lid closed, anyway. No one has to pee all over the place. I just got through having an argument with my stepson who claims all men pee on shower curtains. I told my husband the same thing. I know I sure remember being a little boy and hearing my mom say stuff like that every once in awhile and feeling quite sad and depressed about it. Lady you sterotype boys and men so much.
