Wrong, see my post about dilution of urine. Has nothing to do with male or females. The only thing is, it is a lot easier for men to pee outside than it is for women.
As a farmer/gardener, one usually has a lot of options on where to pee. Don't be stupid and pee or put any not fully digested compost on root crops or crops that one eats! Corn plants, tomatoes that are well staked, staked beans, squash, etc. are good candidates. Use some common sense with something like urine.
As a long time gardener/farmer and pee (as fertilizer) user, some of you are missing a very important point that has to do with moisture in the soil and percolation rates. During the mid to late summer, most areas in the eastern US get very dry. The top soil has very little moisture. Even when it rains, an inch of rain will only percolate in to about 4-5 inches into the soil. In 90 degree weather, this will evaporate out in about 5 days. If an animal, wild, domestic, or human pees on the ground, it will burn the plants if there is not enough moisture. This is the same thing if someone applies a granular fertilizer and then it rains a 1/4 inch. That small amount of rain is enough to dissolve some of the fertilizer, but it will also be very strong and as a result burn the grass. This is what is happening when a dog takes a pee on the grass.
I use pee around my farm on many of my trees where I usually have a wood or mulch ring around the trunk. The urine will only permeate the mulch a couple of inches. The water in the urine will evaporate in a few days. But then when either we get a good rain or I water the tree well, the minerals will soak in. I have never seen any negative consequences from doing this. I also intentionally do not pee in the same spot continuously. Why go indoors and pee in a toilet - which eventually flushes into our waterways? Use your own fertilizer if/when you can!
