It takes all of 20 seconds to make a bed 🤷🏾♂️ Like having my room look tidy
Trust and hate, and love and fate, and I don't understand. Social grace, the human race, confuse me. These words I speak bring forth a world of emotions. Emotions of dreams lost, dreams found, and dreams I'll never see. So it is written. So it shall come to pass.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be clean or feel clean. My place can get dusty. I have to dust, clean, vacuum, etc. Because I’m gone for work for long periods of time I don’t want to leave my bed unmade for so long that when I finally do get into it that it would be dusty or dirty. I only wash my sheets once a week so I like to keep them as clean as possible during the week. Sometimes my gf stays over and that might affect things but not in some catastrophic way. We do clean up after ourselves.

Agreed with it being sort of a "structure" things. Additionally, I think it's something that helps people who might feel they don't have a strong sense of control over their lives; not knocking people who feel that way, life can get out of hand for any number of reasons beyond our control, but "I got up and made my bed" can double as a statement that says "I'm taking control/ownership of the things I do have influence over", which can put someone in a better mental state.
That said, I mostly agree; I don't have an issue with leaving my bed a mess. Heck, some research says leaving it messy is actually a better way to keep bacteria from settling into the covers.
In the UK, we mainly use duvets rather than blankets, so making your bed is simply pulling the duvet into a generally tidy position. It's the work of a few seconds, yet I've known plenty of people (often girls) who simply don't bother.
I get that it takes only a few seconds but there’s still no point in it, it doesn’t make any difference to anything whatsoever

When I made my bed daily it was nice, but I got off that and nowadays rarely make my bed unless I change the sheets.
But I made it this morning, and......dunno about you, but I get a strong sense of accomplishment when I do it. It gives you an energy to do other stuff and be productive. And that energy seems more noticeable when you don't do it often. If it's still a daily routine, I guess it's there?
tl;dr - I'm lazy, making your bed makes you feel much less lazy, I should do it more, alas I'm lazy...

I dunno, I just don’t like the clutter.
It was a chore for me to make my bed as a kid, but now I just see it as a way to make our bedroom look tidy. It’s the same reason I don’t leave dirty laundry on the floor and I immediately put dishes I’ve used in the dishwasher.
We don’t normally do a lot of entertaining, but I never hafta worry about having people over or if somebody drops in because our place looks respectable.
