My son has anxiety about sitting on the potty

My son is going to be 3 soon, and I've been trying off and on with potty training but he has such anxiety about sitting on the toilet, or even his little potty. He takes a long time to adjust to new things so I'm trying to be patient. But now he (obviously) doesn't like the feeling of dirtying his diaper. So he takes it off when he's gone poo (resulting in potential mess for me) and when I put him in big boy undies, he takes them off and has been just peeing on the floor then putting them back on. How do I get him to do this in the potty!???

Teach him how to pee standing up. Peeing usually comes first anyhow, and it always takes extra time for pooping on the potty. My son didn't like sitting on it either, so my husband taught him standing, and sitting came soon after.
