No wonder US members can't cope with trans folk, you're too prudish to even say toilet lmfao

better than a back alley with no roof to protect from crap British weather drizzle rain!



I think Cornwall is the capital of Britain for drizzle rain. Truro being the 5th wettest "city" in the UK.

I spent 17 years in Cornwall and winters are just miserable. Just drizzle, it's like the climate never changes, just drizzle and never cold or warm. Much prefer Scottish autumn and winters were although it's slightly colder, the many more days of no cloud cover makes up for it. But then the tables get turned again come Summer, where its better to be down south. Although in Cornwall that means putting up with traffic jams, too many surfers on the beach, and too many people in general for a county with no motorway.

I thought you fellas across the pond called it a water closet?

Lmao maybe my great gran called it that but I've never heard anyone use that old term, water closet pmsl!
I bet if I asked my 20 year old son what that was he wouldn't even have a clue.


Have a British family that lives in my neighborhood, they call it a "loo" (good people, had me over for a "full British Breakfast" one day. First time ever eating beans for breakfast, odd but good)

Work with a British guy who is here on a Visa he also calls it a "loo"

You call trucks "lorry"

You call the police "Bobby"

I'm not going to say what you call cigarettes.

You live in a glass house of weird words.

Lol, my best mate catches up on ATS during his morning dump.
The toilet is about the only place he gets some peace in his busy house.

Again though, 'loo' works because it is a word specifically referring to the toilet, not a rest, or a bath.
Start your own thread about differences between US and UK words if you like I'd love to respond, but regarding this thread I'm taking the piss out of the silly words 'restroom' and 'bathroom' because the toilets in say McDonalds do not have baths or comfy chairs for a rest. The words are ridiculous lol.

This is truly a silly argument. You’re using the word “toilet” as a strawman to conflate a weak philosophy about why we’re not particularly fond of the transgender community. As we all know, British and American English had a bit of a schism around the time when the American colonies were formed. This is why we say “trunk” and you say “boot” when referring to the storage area located behind the cabin of a car. This does not mean that is the reason why we say “soccer” instead of “football”, which would be just as silly as your argument.

We simply prefer to refer to the actual porcelain throne as the toilet and the room which contains it as the restroom — and believe you me, some people really get quite comfortable in there. I’d call that taking a rest. It’s not because we’re prudish. It’s just that we speak differently.

As far as the trans thing goes, AGP is a large reason most people are uncomfortable with grown men in dresses waving their dicks around in front of young girls. Remember the old liberal adage, “men rape.” I suppose that is, of course, unless they’re wearing a dress.

I was taking the piss for a laugh mate, not trying to make a genuine philosophical argument, although I do think 'restroom' evolved from Puritanical shame about people knowing you are about to use the toilet lol shock horror, imagine, going to the toilet! Restroom lmfao

I have a bath in the bathroom as well, that's why it is called the bathroom.
High end market restaurants you presumably eat at do not have baths in their toilets though so calling them bathrooms is of course silly.

Oh, I see...so the U.S. Must abide but how you call things?...

BTW, people do say "toilet" too. Heck for us former military and present military personnel we call it "the head," and if you think we are "prudish" you obviously have no idea of what you are talking about.

Lol at you being the first in the thread to use your military service term for a toilet as some kind of badge of honour. I've served the UK as well, but now as a civvie I don't call it the head I call it a toilet.
Do you have comfy sofa's and baths in your public toilets? Nope didn't think so lol

Yep, that's my opinion, total prudes who come out with stupid words like restroom, bathroom, or even the most childish one, go potty lol.
Are you ashamed of going to the toilet? Does it make you feel dirty and sinful taking a dump or going for a piss?
I used the toilet at McDonalds the other day, on my receipt it said "Toilet lock code 3490", on the door it said "Toilet", and guess what, there were no comfy seats there to have a rest, and not a bath in sight.
Here, I'll help you out...

Restroom


Bathroom


Toilet


Potty

You will note that a potty is a receptacle used to teach small children how to use...guess what...yes, the toilet.

You will also note that the toilet image above is typical of public toilets with cubicles which have lockable doors for privacy. If a trans male still has a vagina then he will use the cubicle in the male toilets to sit down and pee. Nobody will see and children will not be scarred for life.
If a trans female still has a penis there are no urinals on the wall so she will also use a cubicle to pee, and again nobody will see unless you are weird and peep over the door or something.

So lesson of the day complete, a toilet is something different to a bathroom or restroom, but you prudish US folk have some weird hangup about saying the word...almost as bad as when you see (shock horror) a female nipple while at the beach Lmao!
Y'all make me think of Victorian Britain.


You are so privileged with your indoor plumbing and different words for the same thing.

I'm coming to your country and bringing a few thousands friends
