Well, clearly, we homosexuals, who have control over the entire media, must use our power to transform the language of plumbers from "male" and "female" to "top" and "bottom."

What are the implications for human sexuality of the availability of pipes in different sizes? Even if you use the correctly-sexed fitting, if you try to connect 1/2" to 3/4" you're going to get water all over the place. And what is the sexual equivalent of plumber's tape? How does the United Methodist Church come down on the question of copper versus PVC? In which sexual situations does the Universal Plumbing Code require a U-bend?

And what other aspects of human society can be regulated by reference to the house-building trades?

On the other hand, if you're not actually attempting to plumb a building (and you'd be crazy to attempt to run your sink and shower off of an interconnected series of homosexuals), what harm is done to the world if you want to bump fittings together that aren't technically designed to screw in place and stay that way? I do it all the time in the plumbing aisle at Home Depot, and no one says anything about it.

Just don't try to cheap out and skip the P-trap, or you'll regret it forever.

You know I, and any of my many gay friends, can prove that unlike actual plumbing, 2 male parts can not only fit together but fit REAL GOOD!

I don't know about you all, but I go to home depot like all the time to see some hot plumbing action. Oh yeah, that's sexy hard metal. Yeah, and when I see 2 male parts it just increases, i mean RUINS, the hotness. I completely define my sexuality by man made plumbing parts all the time, its like the most normal thing I know.
