I don't think so. "Male" includes even infants. Those who "urinate against the
wall" are of a certain age, and maybe disposition as well. I am reminded of an
expression from my youth. "If you want to run with the pack, you gotta quit
pissen like a puppy." A metaphorical expression, of course, meaning something
like "Grow up and act like a man"
