Why arent there changing tables in the Mens Room???

It bugs the hell out of me. Why cant a dad take his infant/toddler somewhere without worrying about where/how theyre going to change them? It seems like a double standard. Like its MOMS job. What about all the single dads out there? Why should they resort to the backseat of the car or a park bench? Im sure a FEW places offer both but why not all?

  • I know! I guess they think its the women job to change the baby.... I think all bathrooms should have a changing table or at lease a family bathroom with one in it.

  • There are in a lot of the mens rooms here. Also most places have family restrooms.

  • All the places where I live and have traveled to have them in both. There was only one instance that there wasn't one in the men's room, but there wasn't one in the women's room either! Now, that pissed me off!!!

  • A lot has family restrooms. I wouldn't want one in the men's room. I'd be afraid some idiot would pee on it thinking it was funny. Men can be so childish

  • Around here in most places there's a baby changing area in the disabled toilet.
