I can hear the groans now

On a whizzical note from Norway, this story seems as if it’s been streamed directly from The Onion, but it appears legit:

The head of The Democrats Party, a splinter group of former Progress Party hardliners, Vidar Kleppe, is outraged that boys at Dvergsnes School in Kristiansand have to sit and pee.

“It is a human right not to have to sit down like a girl,” Kleppe said.

I’m amused at the piddling nature of this issue, but really, I’m fairly certain that it’s unwise to wrap a bogus “human right” claim around a dose of sexism. What audience is he aiming for?
