You're better than your mess.

  • UfYH is gender-neutral. I don’t buy into traditional standards of who “should” be doing cleaning. If you live somewhere, you deserve for that place to be nice and clean and livable, and you should be the one who makes it that way. I don’t care who you are or what box or boxes you check or don’t. I think gender roles as they relate to cleaning (well, in most ways, but that one’s relevant) are bullshit and just offer a handy excuse for half the population to be lazy and the other half to feel guilty. Fuck that. We’re unfucking traditional gender roles here. Everyone plays.
  • OCD is something one has, not something one “is,” and most people who say, “I’m so OCD” do not have OCD and could use a thesaurus and some sensitivity training.

    Here at UfYH HQ, we don’t use “OCD” as shorthand or a humorous description for personality quirks or behaviors. It’s a legitimate medical condition. Words are important, and there are better ways to get your point across without trivializing someone else’s health issue. Some potential alternatives:

    • Extremely particular
    • Attentive to cleanliness
    • Hates when things are dirty
    • Excessively tidy
    • Fastidious
    • Exceptionally neat
    • Predisposed to cleanliness

    P.S. OCD doesn’t always (or even usually or particularly often) mean that someone is extremely clean or organized.
