  • Funny, I was at a cookout today and all the dads were sharing their "first time at a changing station in the men's room" stories. So I think you're wrong.

  • lol good question and I don't feel it's sexist more of a stereotype thing and my husband says that since mostly men are charged with sex crimes that deal with small children it is taboo.

  • most of the places around here have a "family" rest room. Also I think dh said that he has seen changing tables in some of our mens restrooms.
