The Real Reasons Why Women Go to the Bathroom in Groups at Events

October 17, 2022

Women tend to go to the bathroom in groups, but the main question is why? The girls who get it obviously get it, but if you’re reading this, you probably don’t. Don’t worry, we have your back. Here are the eight reasons why women go to the bathroom in groups. 

Come up with weird questions to ask their partners 

Where do people think all the “Will you love me if I turned into Olumo rock?” questions come from? Women gather in bathrooms to figure out new ways to stress the people they’re dating. 

Radicalise themselves against ironing 

Starting  a movement happens in places you least expect, and that’s why women follow each other to the bathrooms. They remind themselves that although their clothes are rumpled, they’re beautiful. 

Plan a girls’ trip that won’t leave the bathroom 

As women gather together in the bathroom, they remind themselves how much they enjoy spending time with each other, and then, they plan a girls’ trip. Unfortunately, it never leaves the bathroom. It might extend to a group chat, but it ends there.

Gather receipts to win their next argument

According to the Zikoko Bureau of Statistics, investigative journalism was invented in the year 1307 after the first set of women gathered together in a bathroom. They gathered receipts, and now, it’s become a thing women have done for generations. In the bathroom, they plot, plan and start putting 2 and 2 together.

Planning the next “I think it’s just funny how” text 

After they sit to gather receipts, they redistribute their anger and start drafting all their “I think it’s just funny how” messages. They do it in the bathroom with other women who’ll ginger their typing and remind them of all the offences the person has committed. 

Sectional women’s meeting 

Announcing a general women’s meeting will be met with a lot of resistance. That’s why women go to the bathroom in groups, to debrief, share minutes of the meeting and send their struggles to headquarters.

Diplomacy

Countries have the United Nations, and women have the bathroom. It’s like a big physical group chat. In there, all issues are addressed. There’s a secret part of the bathroom that leads to a courtroom where women can solve all their problems freely and fairly. 

Witchcraft

Women are summoning principalities and powers in the bathroom. Everyone knows friends who witch together, stay together.
