The Supreme Court ruled that firing a woman for breastfeeding isn’t sexist.

A woman from Iowa sued Nationwide Mutual Insurance after she claims she was forced to resign because they didn’t provide her with a proper space to breastfeed.

A trial court dismissed the cast saying “that breastfeeding-related firings aren’t sexist because men can lactate, too.”

She petitioned the Supreme Court for a review of the dismissal of her case but they refused… which means she has reached the end of the road and will be unable to pursue this matter further.

Here’s PROOF it’s ok to leave the toilet seat up!

Economists created a math model to show that it’s okay to leave the toilet seat up.

The model found the best way to minimize effort is to simply leave the seat in the position you’ve used it.

A guy will have to lift the seat each time he urinates but not when he goes number two…. and the woman will have to lower it each time she urinates but not if the man has pooped before her.

And because no one will have to move the seat more than once per bathroom visit, effort will be reduced.
