When I was little, I thought that since boys stood up to pee, they could stand up to poop.

When I first started learning about colonial times, and how the women dressed what with corsets garters and those humungous hoopskirts, I always wondered how on earth they went to the bathroom. As a little girl I wore dresses a lot, and it was always a hassle to go to the bathroom wearing one. It must have been super hard to do it when your dress stood out three feet on each side. I finally decided that colonial women learned how to hold all of their excrements all day, and at night when they took of all their clothes they would finally get to go to the bathroom.

I was a stupid kid.

I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet all of the water (and everything in it) would travel through a pipe to two men who had to strain out the poop so the rest could come back up to the toilet. I have no idea why I thought this...

Even though my parents almost never took any of the family to church, I was still raised in a very sheltered and puritanical environment. My only sister was years older than me and therefore able to hide knowledge from me. Perhaps she told me that that "girls don't poop" as I see numerous others on this site have been told, at an age when I was too young to retain a specific memory of it. But even if the memory wasn't tangible of it's origin, I too certainly got the idea that girls don't poop. Believe it or not, that was a belieef I never questioned until high school, and never got any clarity about for quite some years thereafter. One day in my first year in high school I heard some sarcastic boys that I didn't much trust telling a story that mentioned a girl "shitting". Perplexed, I couldn't help but ask something about that, to the effect that "girls don't do that, do they?" (I don't remember my exact words.) In any events, the responses I got mainly made me regret asking, consisting mostly of derisive laughter and ridiculing. One guy did tell me that girls poop just the same as boys do, but there was no clear indicarion but what he was being as derisive as the rest. I wondered, after all, do boys really know for sure? I was finding that I apparently didn't. I started thinking how nice it would be if I could find out from some girl that I could trust. The only girl I could imagine daring ask was a very nice, but very popular "upperclasssman". I more or less had a hopeless "crush" on this girl. I decided if I could just get her to enlighten me about this matter, I could be more content and make my joy of know her everything that it possibly could be. I didn't dare start out askig her, "Hey Kathy, is it true what I just heard, that girls poop exactly the same as boys do?" So, to break the ice, I started out telling her that I'd always heard that boys and girls "go to the bathroom" differently, and I understood how they pee differently, so she need not try to explain THAT. At that point she gave a resounding response of "Yeah, Wayne, Girls are different! NO SHIT!". That was in a tone as if to end all argument about it, so it seemed, and that stopped me dead in my tracks. Having no previous knowledge of "No shit" as a figurative expression, I could only think she'd confirmed what I'd assumed for years. So I could only go on believing more of the same. Only years later did I begin to piece together with her response what I'd grown to understand of the figurative meaning of "No shit!", understanding at last that Kathy might have had only the best intentions of setting things straight for me and that I might have had a chance back then of continuing the inquiry and learning the truth from her, if only I had understood what she was meaning by "No shit!"

I used to believe that the testicles were where urine was stored and the butt-cheeks were where poop was stored.

When I was in the first grade, a kid told me that if you don't wash your hands after using the restroom, you'll die from the germs on your hands. Up untill the third grade I always held my penis with my shit tail while urinating.

I used to believe that news readers didn't go to the toilet as I never saw them get up to go. I also believed that famous actors and actresses, pop stars, famous sports stars, nuns, monks, priests, bishops, the pope, the royal family and politicians never went to the toilet or farted.

When I was in about 8, we would stand in line in school every morning to go to the bathroom. Most of the time, I had to pee really bad. I would always think that if I tried hard enough, I would puke my pee out, and I wouldn't have to go anymore.

When I was very small, about 4 or 5 years old, I believed that there was a cork inside your wee hole that kept the wee from coming out until you were full. I used to check the toilet looking for the little bitty cork.

When I was a little kid I thought celebrities never had to go to the bathroom. Maybe it was just because they never had toilets or mentioned bodily functions on TV.

When I was little (2-3) I used to love baths so much, I didn't want to get out to go to the bathroom. So one day I had to poo really bad, so i just did. I didn't notice it at all until it somehow wound up in FRONT of me and was floating towards me. Horrified, I screamed and jumped out of the tub yelling "A BUG! A BUG! ITS GOING TO EAT MEEEE!" To this day I still hate taking bathes.

When I was about three, I simply refused to wear my diaper. My mom used to tell me that if I didn't wear a diaper, a huge fly would come and fly up my butt. To this day, I am deftly afraid of flying things, especially flies!
