NORWAY: SCHOOLBOYS NEED TO IMPROVE AIM

Opposition politicians in southern Kristiansand are outraged over a ruling by a local school ordering boys to urinate while sitting down. Principal Anne Lise Gjul issued the edict because, she says, young boys are bad with their aim. But Vidar Kleppe of the Demokratene party demanded a discussion by the school district, saying the rule is contrary to nature and an attack on freedom: “It is a human right not to have to sit down like a girl.”
