With No Place to Change Baby, Dad Had to Use Floor
Before judging him, there's 2 points I'd like to make.
1. He explains why he "had" to in his facebook post below.
2. A lack of changing stations in men's rooms is the bigger issue here, and the take away intended.
In my opinion - Dad's take care of their baby's too. I can never understand a grown man, who calls himself a father, refusing or pushing back at changing his baby. I also never understand men who don't clean, or cook, or try. You don't have to be perfect, but to not try or call it "women's work" is absolutely ridiculous.
Despite many establishments making sure public restrooms both have changing tables, and even having straight up family bathrooms, some places are yet to update themselves.
As a small business owner myself, I get that the changing landscape results in unanticipated (at times) expenses. But also as a small business owner, that's the cost of doing business.
If you can't change and adapt you die. That IS America and that is the way it's supposed to be.
I say this because it's simply unacceptable to not have a changing table in both your public bathrooms IF you are an establishment that could be visited by kids. 21 and older bars, for example, are a different story.
This business he visited had a changing table only in the women's room. That's ridiculous.
Is the business some sort of evil one that thinks women should be back in the kitchen? I have no idea, but probably not. The reality is they probably just never updated themselves.
However, in today's world, whether you like it or not, social media justice will get you. This business now has bad press all because they never bothered to adapt. They probably didn't mean any malice by it, but here we are. You can't make everyone happy, but you can stay with the times and adapt. They should have a changing station in the men's room.
We don't live in a world where women only change their babies. We never will again. This is not a bad thing. It's also a trend that's been going on for quite a while. It isn't much to ask for there to be changing stations in men's rooms.
Plus, as a parent, babies don't exactly poop on schedule LOL! You never know when it will happen, and leaving her in it is a BAD idea. Boys... eh. (I'm mostly kidding)
