The rumor is that girls take longer in bathrooms than boys. We sat outside the bathroom doors and timed people from when they went in, to when they came out.
There are different factors that go into how long people take in the bathroom. Sometimes people go into the bathroom, but don’t actually use the bathroom, or maybe you have to wait in line, they could also just be going in to socialize with friends.

We took the times of eight boys, and eight girls.

“I get Snapchats from my friends while they’re in the bathroom, so I go meet up with them. Duty calls!” said Sophomore, Noah Evans
Turns out, the rumors may be true. The average female time spent in the bathroom was, 2 minutes and 46 seconds, compared to the Males average time of 2 minute and 31 seconds. They aren’t too far from each other, but this does prove that girls do, in fact, take more time in the bathroom.
