Why do we make it so difficult for men to be good fathers ?


This is typical of the discrimination that men suffer every day in this country.
The sign clearly stateds there are baby changing facilities, but they are located inside the ladies toilets thus making them out of bounds for men. This particular sign is in from a shop in Norwich, but there are plenty of others the same as this.
What does a father do if he takes his child in to the city alone ?

I have noticed plenty of mens rooms that have the baby changing facilities, what do woman do then. Just use them of course. What a non story. I hope you dont get caught going round toilets with your camera.

I agree.

These are assumptions about men's role in the family that are terribly harmful and self fulfilling. They discriminate against anybody who doesn't conform to the stereotype where the father is the chief wage earner married to a mother who is in charge of childcare; it drives me mad too!

Nich, that is not a sign for changing facilities but for feeding facilities.

Mind you who would want to eat in a toilet?

Go to Mothercare ! (ironic, I know, but they often have daddy's changing facilities!) Tesco and Toys R Us are also usually quite good. But I agree - it's a scandal.

Do Norfolk women KNOW who are the fathers of their children?

I thought most Norfolk females were chav swamp-donkeys.

Nice PC post on your part. Almost NuLiebour.........

No, swamp donkeys are the children of anonymous trolls who hide their details.

Cheers ;-)

Good and correct point Susan.
i have not seen men breast feeding babies yet even in Norfolk.

We used the disabled toilets here in Australia. It is an important issue all the same.

Johnny, I aksed staff and they assured me that this was the store's "baby changing facilities". So the sign just confuses matter even more.
