I wanna ruin our friendship. We should be lovers instead
I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
THIS HAS BOTHERED ME FOR A LONG TIME. I’M GLAD THIS IS BEING ADDRESSED EVEN JUST IN WORDS.
I agree, though I dunno why the OP added in that thing about female superiority. It’s not like changing facilities are in women’s bathrooms because of female privilege, but because of societal expectations that women are the primary caregivers. So no changing space in men’s rooms is a result of misogyny! Assuming either parent can be the primary caregiver is p much a definition of feminism right there.
I can testify that this is a royal pain in the arse.

no one should direct star trek 13 because we should get a new series instead of another fucking action film that ignores all canon
