Although it can be said that we now live in a society where the gender divide is being blurred more and more with every day, there is still some clear divisions between people who identify as cis-gendered. For example, women will spend many hours in the shower, shaving away leg and armpit hair, while men often won’t worry about such things. Women have to take into account a lot of variables when buying underwear, whereas men can just go into a shop, pick up a 4-pack and head home. And then of course there is the divide which comes with toilet etiquette. Something that a woman recently discovered isn’t all that black and white, leading her to turn to Reddit for some…interesting answers.

And there could be many reasons for this.
