I have a body modification (not going to provide more details than this, other than that it's not a sex-change, sorry Traso) that effectively requires that I sit even if I want to take a piss. I still wouldn't have the fucking temerity to demand that everyone else leave the toilet seat down.
Being female isn't a disability and shouldn't be treated as such. I believe in equality, and among other things, that means putting the toilet seat in whatever position you need it to be in, regardless of your gender or personal physical attributes, yourself.
