    Apparently, you have never had to clean a toilet, especially under the rim. Also the bottom of the toilet seat needs cleaning.

    It is a matter of hygiene where it requires cleaning. As for the seat, it should be clean.

    I'm sure that you have cleaned a toilet, and that it has nothing to do with the cleaning process. The engineers who designed it aren't anymore concerned about cleaning toilets than the engineers who designed automobile engines are concerned about the poor mechanics who have to work on them in the after market garages. It was probably designed that way to keep the production simple and as cheap as possible so that the company didn't have the expense of adding an additional line for Female toilets.

    cost is a factor..and let's face it keep everything simple, besides some women stand over the toilet to urinate..they don't sit down on the toilet seat, paper cover or not...
    just came to me when a mother takes her little boy into the ladies room, the seat would have to go he may be too short.. sorry for the light humor..
    Happy Holidays...

    If you want that toilet cleaned, the seat better raise up.  It would be impossible to get it clean otherwise.

    I would think that on very rare occasions a lady might be so sick that she might need to pray to the porcelain gods for forgiveness due to too much partying.  A raised seat in this situation might be helpful.
