One Third of British Men Say They Sometimes Hide In Their Bathrooms To Escape Family, Survey Claims
Why do conservative Christians blather on and on about the supposed need for parenthood – because supposedly, parenthood makes people less selish, and turns them into all-Giving, loving, responsible, mature Savior Figures, when some of these parents admit to hiding from their own families in the bathroom?
And why are men hiding? Women still do the majority of the house-work and child-care as most husbands sit around on their asses drinking beer and watching TV.
I don’t see how the Nuclear Family is making culture any better, especially when the male figure of the family is hiding from said family in the bathroom.

A third of British men say they sometimes hide in their bathrooms “to get some peace and quiet”, according to a new poll.
The survey of 1,000 men found that on average they spend a total of seven hours a year in the bathroom for this reason.
Respondents said the main reasons they hid in the toilet was to avoid chores and look at their phones undisturbed.
The poll found that the men who were polled had one in ten of their visits to the bathroom interrupted on average – 171 during the course of a typical year.
“We all need a little bit of time to ourselves – to take stock or switch off completely,” said a spokesperson for bathroom company Pebble Grey. “And the bathroom appears to be the go-to place for those moments – it’s very much a sanctuary, somewhere we can cut ourselves off from the outside world, albeit just temporarily.
“As the results suggest, peace and quiet is sacred and clearly men take the opportunity to get this where they can”.
